I swear I can see your soul




Daddy has a birthday today
we made you lots of cards and trinkets
36 and devastatingly handsome
36 and I would so pick you up today like I did so many years ago
At a party or a bar
take you home and never let you go
You are beautiful
and you know how to do most anything
you tell stories that pop my irises
and the world could fall inside out
as long as you are near me
Happy Birthday Joe.

We made steak and fries and took a walk to the candy store.
A pretty good day.

What a beautiful family you have!

This song inexplicably makes me cry. (Hello, PMS? Party of one.) LOVE The Waterboys. "This Is the Sea," to me, is a perfect song for motherhood.
