Time May Change Me...


Sometimes it's the little things that bring the most comfort, don't you think?
Daniel and I love love love to get fortune cookies.
On our honeymoon we drove up the coast from my home in Southern California to his home in Seattle, Washington. 
We stopped in San Francisco and picked up a huge bag of fortune cookies in China Town.
It's just one of our little things.
The cookies are so so but the fortunes are delightful.
Anyhow, we went out for sushi the other night and we both received this matching fortune.
It made us happy.
This makes me happy too.

I've spent most of the past month feeling under the weather and stressing a bit about upcoming change (getting older, moving, etc.) in my life so this fortune meant something special to me.
I love when that happens.

We are getting ready to pack up our cottage and move to a little house that is closer to campus (where Dan works).
Dan says that we don't need to start packing until the day after my birthday next week. 
I know he's right but I'm feeling anxious and feel like I need to get started. 
Instead, I am going to go cuddle with my Bono Baby and enjoy my last week of my 35th year. 
Here's to facing the changes in life gracefully and fortune cookies.

hugs,
Fritzi Marie

Dearest Kristen,

Atlanta is just at hop, skip, and a jump away. I'll be there with bells on to see you and pretty Lauren.

love love,

How perfect that you both got that fortune...things like that make me certain that someone or something is looking out for us and sending us messages. I hope you have an amazing last week of 35. 36 is going to be a magical year!!!
