These little words, a sleepy epiphany, are a morning ode to the pull of something more and deep running joy - for all the 'difficult to wake for' days.
From today, and all the days after, may you find the things that bring you to life and revel in them every day.

To me, you are gentle breezes greeting me with kisses. You are deep seaside breaths, easy joy, and laughter rolling from the depths of my chest.
