Anything Could Happen

Freshly-Hatched 

This day 29 years ago was a Sunday. It was also the day I entered this world. 


Me and Grandma...she's a funny lady. So much so, she made my double-chin come out!

Back in the beginning of this year, I was out running and Ellie Goulding's Anything Could Happen came on the radio. And I thought, what a great song for 2014. That will be my 2014 mantra.....

Anything Could Happen...I mean, it could.


I've kind of always adored her

I had a thing for men with mustaches back in the day.


Leading up to this birthday I was so concerned with making all the "big things" in life happen. Stressed out that all my check boxes weren't checked ya know.



you know....just chilling on my blue bedspread with my purple romper and huge head...high on life


Sweets-lover from the start...I mean, look at the voracity and focus in those eyes!

I'd be a liar if I said I was completely over all those fears and thoughts ....I'd sound like the most has-it-all-together chick ever...but I'd be a liar.

However, in a moment of trying to have it all together, I took a step back....and stopped looking at boxes not yet checked and looked at all the ones that were. And I saw that this year was full....SO.gloriously.full.



  Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a GIFT.

and really....anything could happen.

XO, A

Anything COULD happen! I mean hello, I met a French guy in a nightclub in Dublin and married him. That's a big ol' 'could' right there.
Happy belated birthday wishes my friend. And the next time you're in San Antonio, hit me up! muah.
