Here's to:

 
Why does this have to be so true?

"You cannot go back in time, even if you wish it with every fiber of your being, your heart and soul, even if you think about it every day. Trust me. I know."  here

"That's what you don't get. To find two people who have the same heart isn't a coincidence. It's a God damn miracle. And it happens every day."  Also, I wrote this for you.


I just love how those posts speak to me. They speak to me, yet cannot entirely convince me.

I am stubborn like that... I am stubborn enough to know something and not act upon it...or maybe stupid is the right word.
 I took that, Pete's camera

Here's to not being stupid and actually having fun.
Here's to enjoying the few days I have left of being 21.
Here's to doing things to stop the future what ifs, or enhance them.  Or change their direction altogether.
Here's to pictures you never knew were taken.

Well, Miss Birthday-Twin, you have almost an entire month left of being 21, technically (and I one more month -- almost -- of being 28...though I don't really know what that means). A month can be an infinity; it can be a heartbeat. Here's to it being whichever would please you the most...

(We will have to do something ridiculous on our birthday, the same thing, and take a photograph of ourselves doing it and send it to each other so we can say we celebrated our birthday together. Something involving balloons, maybe...)
