have you ever watched the snow fall? just sat and watched as the snow slowly and quietly covers the earth in a beautiful white cotton blanket. i've lived here my whole life and it wasn't until yesterday as i drove home that i stopped to just watch, watch as glitter literally fell from the sky as if god was celebrating the new year to come. between the snowflakes falling from the sky to the ones on the ground everything sparkled. it was the most beautiful thing i had ever seen. but it wasn't until that moment that i realized that if you stop for just a bit, you will find beauty in the smallest things.
so, here's to 2013. to goals, and dreams, and celebrations. to doing what makes you happy and seeing that there really is beauty in each day.
