Milestones make life feel so real, surreal at times! It's the eve of my 25th, and after an thrilling weekend of tromping this stunning city to visit favourite places, new faces, and 5 special stateside embraces, I'm completely awe-inspired. More to come, just need a little time to soak in the million little miracles of this past year.
