life is so GLORIOUS and I have so much love I shall burst and rain down skittles


ohmigod, Life. I seem to be having quite a few of these "life is too beautiful for words" moments/days lately.

My week was full of beautiful people and glorious moments! Sunday Ash and I picked up my lil sis and we went to a mostly-vegetarian restaurant where we had INTENSELY delicious food and received compliments from a stranger. Monday lil sis and I went to the borderpagans meeting and talked with Awesome Dane and Bryan and Ben and then lil sis and Ben and I went out to eat and our waiter told us the stories of all zir tattoos and gave Ben a pony! Wednesday Ash & lil sis & I went to dinner with S and then went to this awesome teahouse in Atlanta where Nicole works -- we hung out with Ben & Nicole and the rest of the staff (who all seem quite lovely and open!) and lil sis asked the usual intensely-personal questions (which is possibly my favorite thing about zir). Thursday Ash & lil sis & I went to Thanksgiving lunch with Ash's grandmother and great-aunts, who were wonderful and accepting, and then we went to have dessert with two of my bio-aunts, an uncle, a cousin, and the cousin's SO -- which was surprisingly fun and comfortable. (it's interesting how facebook has made my extended bio-family more a part of my life than ever before) And today! OMFG! Lil sis & I (& later Ash) went with Ben to a thanksgiving party hosted by Scarlett, whom I'd met once before but didn't really know. I was very nervous about it beforehand because I didn't know most of the people there, but I felt comfortable pretty quickly because the energy of the space was just so welcoming and almost everyone radiated this really trustworthy energy. And I got to cuddle with Ben and Scarlett, *gleeeeee!* oh it was SUCH an incredible evening. And this will all make more sense with photos I'm sure because right now it just looks like a pile of names, but I haven't edited any yet so oh well.

I'm so un-fucking-believably in love, and life just keeps showering me with more and more joy. I'm overflowing with happiness, I feel like I've had enough joy to keep me glowing for a week -- and I'm spending tomorrow with justben! we're going to the Big Trees Forest Preserve! If I don't post again for a while, it's because I got overwhelmed with joy to the point where I lost the ability to form sentences (or perhaps words). ♥! Don't worry, I'm sure it will wear off if that happens ;-)

I don't work on Saturdays and Sundays so we'll have to plan a visit sometime. I don't think it's that far of a drive.

Yay! I'm glad there are so many wonderful people in your life :-D

What are borderpagans? And what do you mean when you say "gave Ben a pony?"?

You Remind Me
that even when life really fucking sucks, there are moments like these to be found every where, and you just have to open up and tap in.
I've been on a pretty rough road the past several months, but I know that always around the corner, some surprise of love and light awaits me.
Life is pretty glorious, even when its not.
