This past week, for the first time since turning 30 in February, I revisited a cherished gift I received for my last birthday. My closest friends compiled a book of quotes and photos for me submitted by those dearest to me. A lover of quotes, the book was filled with some of my favorites as well as the favorites of others or quotes that made them think of me. And of course photos from memory lane, young and old, silly and serious, flattering and embarrassing.
I read it when they gave it to me months back during that special month. But I haven’t looked through it since. This week, needing to remember the love I felt that weekend and the friends that made it so, as well as the encouragement in this book, I reopened it, this time reading it with more care and time than before. I laughed and cried as I looked through it and the photos below. Life really is about the moments and the people… So this #tbt is a throwback with more meaning than the usual and comes with encouragement and love that I hope is fuel for today…and tomorrow.
The cherished book above.
