And tonight I sit by my tree and I type in my new pj's and slippers while our solar powered Pink Flamingos glow peacefully in our front yard, I am thankful. I am in love. I miss my friends.
I feel all three of these things simultaneously.
I am incredibly thankful for God giving me my family, laughter, beauty, unique oddballs, weird traditions and acceptance.
I am in love with someone who is in love with me, and I never thought this day would come. Instead of having a life raft in the form of a boyfriend, I have found someone who will swim with me. I did not fall, I just found someone who encourages me to stand by the very person they are. He is my best friend, and I have never felt love like this. 
My friends are the ones who will text me First. 
I will forever be grateful to Cristen and Veronica, because we fight. We disagree. We fling poo and make monkey noises [okay, that last one isn't true]. They've always come back. They've always texted me first.
It's the friends who hold up their end of the friendship that pop into your mind when you think of who you want to cry to. To vent to. 
It's the people that you aren't afraid to show frustration to, and the people you aren't afraid to admit to how much you love pink flamingos. 

And now we have gone full circle, and I love you all and hope you had a merry day full of...love. Loves. Loving?
AND CANDY!

Also: I started a Tumblr! Just for pictures.
