five minute friday: new

how funny the topic of five minute friday is (new) on the eve i embark into my 28th year?
let's do this.


my dear girl is abounds with new vocabulary every day.
new objects are beyond facinating.
new antics, new challenges, new expressions.
new joys, new activities, new discoveries.
she opens new windows into my soul every 24 hours i get to spend with her.
she moves me forward, to new spaces in time.
she compels me to find new versions of myself.

we turn new leaves in our lessons in this life.
we turn pages of our story
some with apprehension,
some with great anticipation,
others with elated glee,
carefree high spirits,
but always

i don't know quite what this "new" year in my life will bring.
a new chapter.
new ways for me to live out loud
dance in the driveway in the rain
push and pull all of this taffy of our days.

hope your thursday has been full of smiles.
