The seasons arrive each year with their own unique puzzle pieces. The music, the feel of the air, the holidays, the food, and the activities can be put together to create memories from these four distinct times of the year. Growing up I remember feeling so excited for the next one to begin! Summer was always extra special though. Summer has its own song, its own feeling, its own language. There is a certain sense of freedom that comes with summer, and an urge to create, experience, and reconnect with yourself and with others.
Of all the advice that I received as I approached my wedding day, it seemed as though nothing was stressed more than the concept of time and just how quickly it passes by on this particular day.
No goal or thought is impossible, and the journey that you plan is how you spend the days of your life. Your goal trips can become some of your favorite memories! It’s all about, “getting there,” and learning about yourself in the present moment as you take the steps to reach your dreams.
“Statistics prove that you have one birthday,
one birthday every year
But there are three hundred and sixty-four unbirthdays
Precisely why we’re gathered here to cheer!”
-The Mad Hatter and The March Hare from “Alice In Wonderland” (The Unbirthday Song)
“If we could sit together a moment
and talk forever just to pass the time…”
-Owl City (Meet You There)
“Every moment in your life is a chance to get it right
Any moment you are living in
You could turn it on like a light.”
-Third Eye Blind (Monotov’s Private Opera)
“It seems strange
How we used to wait for letters to arrive
But what’s stranger still
Is how something so small can keep you alive.”
-The Arcade Fire (We Used To Wait)
