Make a wish. Make it count.

4 Sep

I tend to gauge my life on “moments” where I can recount back and remember exact moments and feelings I had at a specific time.  Cheesy as it may be, it’s these moments that change my life in one way or another.  This past year has been a year of moments and growth in my life and it’s been my friends and family standing by my side that have really given me the courage to finally go full throttle on life experiences.  Working in such a bustling city has been so inspiring but it’s also the moments when I am in the middle of nowhere with two of my best friends that I can find inspiration as well.

This past weekend, I was up with Emily and Matt in Tahoe.  We decided to go on a nighttime adventure to the top of the nearest peak to watch the sun go down and the extremely large moon come up.  It was insanely beautiful and I felt so lucky to be there with my friends.  I have some great photos to share from it this week but on the way up to the top of the peak, we stopped in this gorgeous meadow where Emily found the one and only dandelion.  I love that she loves photos too so she let me snap some photos of her and I just love how they came out.  When I was little if you found a dandelion, you would pluck it and blow all of the petals off of the stem to make a wish.  The idea of making a wish is so simple and almost magical because although we all know that wishes don’t just typically happen, it’s a lot of hard work usually that pays off to get a certain reward.

After this dandelion turned to just a stem, we searched and searched this meadow for another one.  We could not find another one anywhere.  Em managed to find the only dandelion.  It was beautiful and a sign of the seasons changing.  I thought I’d want to hang on to this summer forever since it’s been such a great one but I’m actually looking forward to the Fall.  Pumpkin, Ginger, hooded sweatshirts, and most of all the changing of all the colors outdoors.  It’s transitional and beautiful.

Next time you find a dandelion, pick it up and make a wish.  It’s the little things and moments that count 🙂
