no friendship, however brief, can cross the path of our destiny without leaving some mark on it forever

today is my 25th birthday and as i sit here reflecting on the day i can only think of one word and that is blessed. i have received more love and well wishes over the past week than i could have ever expected. when i moved to dc over two years ago i never thought i would have found the amazing friendships and community that i am so fortunate to have here.
the quote at the top of this post was on the cover of a beautiful birthday card that one of my dear friends sent me and i can't believe how true it is in times like these. so to all my friends near and far thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart!
