Every day I learn something new. I learn something else I didn’t already know. I add to the list of things I had no idea about until that very second.

On the wall at home hangs a picture of my guy and I, about 8 and bit years ago. Our faces are so fresh, we look rested and full of energy, teeth sparkling and smiles for days.
