What A Beautiful Life

I always wondered what it would be like.



I had no idea the experience's brilliance would hinge upon place and time.


I had no idea I could feel so beautiful... that another person would be the instigator of that feeling.


I had no idea a commitment, a covenant, a "yes" could impel my love for this man to grow exponentially.

I had no idea.

Congratulations, Cali. I love how you write; it's always better than great.

I LOVE your shoes - no words to describe how fabulous those are. You should have felt beautiful because you are!
