My puppy looked very majestic on our walk through the snow today, so I thought I would share:
It’s strange being away from family on important occasions, like birthdays or graduations or announcements. Today is my Dad’s birthday, and I am sat talking to him through FaceTime. It’s great technology has advanced to a point where we can communicate this easily over long distances, but it is never quite the same. The time difference always plays a part, though staying up is a price I am more than willing to pay. I miss my family dearly, but I still am happy with the choice I made to go to school so far away. At least with technology I can see my family and my puppy, and wish my Dad a happy birthday!
“I am beginning to learn that it is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.”

I found this while I was going through old photos on my computer, and it reminded me of how happy I have been. There is such a simple happiness displayed in the interaction between the elderly man and his dog, and I remember that day being so incredibly peaceful. It makes me miss that summer terribly.
Anyways, onwards into our new week, full of new beginnings and surprises!
