This semester has been frantic and exhausting and occasionally unbearably heartbreaking but all of that belongs to another blog because this blog is about what we ❤ , and honestly despite all that there have been things I really really do <3.

One is a new long-distance ( almost) daily ritual my brother and I have developed since he moved to Switzerland pretty much forever. When I get up I send him a picture of his card of the day with a quick interpretation.

And then a couple hours and half a continent later when he wakes up he posts an image on the “first beautiful of the day” a facebook page he manages.

I feel like this helps us both to set the tone for our days but we get to do it together despite the distance.

 

As for old friends — I once famously forced Sarah to watch a cross-over episode of  “Grey’s Anatomy” and ” Private Practice” – she spent the whole episode wide-eyed with confusion. I am no longer a very regular viewer but every now and then I do tune in and I do still really like the melodramatic pretty music they set their over-the-top storylines to. So I was sort of pleased to find that they recently used this beautiful song by Jasmine Thompson about missing old friends- a sentiment I feel– oh about 20 times a day. It made me think of Sarah and her loyalty and her gameness.
