Happy Easter!

Christ the Lord is risen today, Alleluia! 
Earth and heaven in chorus say, Alleluia! 
Raise your joys and triumphs high, Alleluia! 
Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply, Alleluia! 
Love's redeeming work is done, Alleluia! 
Fought the fight, the battle won, Alleluia! 
Death in vain forbids him rise, Alleluia! 
Christ has opened paradise, Alleluia! 
Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia! 
Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia! 
Once he died our souls to save, Alleluia! 
Where's thy victory, boasting grave? Alleluia! 
Soar we now where Christ has led, Alleluia! 
Following our exalted Head, Alleluia! 
Made like him, like him we rise, Alleluia! 
Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia! 
Hail the Lord of earth and heaven, Alleluia! 
Praise to thee by both be given, Alleluia! 
Thee we greet triumphant now, Alleluia! 
Hail the Resurrection, thou, Alleluia! 
King of glory, soul of bliss, Alleluia! 
Everlasting life is this, Alleluia! 
Thee to know, thy power to prove, Alleluia! 
Thus to sing, and thus to love, Alleluia! 

Happy Easter, Peeps!

 Happy 25th Anniversary to my absolutely incredible parents!

I am so happy for them, and so blessed to have them as parents.  They are both so generous, hilarious, smart, and loving.  They give me great advice, support me, and make me want to be a better person.  They are each other's best friend, and I can only hope to find the kind of love that they have for each other.

My mom sent all of us (my siblings and my father) a beautiful love letter in honor of her anniversary.  Read it here.  It's lovely.


Weekly Gratitude

  • Thank you for my AMAZING family and friends, and everyone who made my 23rd birthday wonderful (and much less painful than I expected).  It was seriously awesome, and I am so, so grateful to have so many wonderful people in my life.
  • Thank you for my bff Piper for doing my hair.  She is so good at what she does.
  • Thank your for my new iPhone. I am already too addicted.
  • Thank you for my boss for letting me have Tuesday (my birthday!) off and for buying me a manicure!
  • Thank your for creme brulee. Oh man is it delish!
  • Thank you for the past 23 blessed years that I am so fortunate to call my life.
