I've found that too many times in this life our shortcomings, failures, and unrealistic expectations of ourselves leave us with the inability to truly connect with others. Walls are built, barriers are made and we create facades to mask our fear of not having all of life's details figured out. I'm lucky to have to the lovely lady above in my life. One who I am unafraid to be truly seen by. One who calls me out when I'm being unpleasant or lazy or using my words to sting. One who loves me despite my mounds of imperfections. One who sees the good in even the most impossible of situations. My sister. Taylor, you are one of the most genuine and real people that I know. I'm so happy for your visit. I can't wait for you to come back again soon. We have many many more mountains to climb.
I simply love each of every one of these photos. T, you're a beauty in every sense of the word. Oh, my Taylor.
ps: Marius says that I should mention that the frequency of random men paying us mind as we walk down the street has significantly decreased since Taylor's departure. i.e. it's back to zero. Ha! We miss you already, T.
