The Head and the Heart

     Josh gave me this absolutely beautiful anatomically correct heart necklace from this etsy shop for Christmas/our anniversary, and I can't get over how perfect it is. It's extremely detailed and has such a nice weight to's just heavy enough that I get a little remember that it's there every once in a while, which can be very comforting. I've noticed recently that even though I have a LOT of jewelry, the pieces I wear on a daily basis have all been given to me by the people I love the most. Knowing that the people you care about gave something to you because they care about you back just makes things so much more meaningful and beautiful.

     I also got The Head and the Heart's album in my stocking and I've been listening to it almost nonstop since! I love the entire thing, but Rivers and Roads in particular has a special place in my heart, especially with everything that's changed in the past year or so. It's amazing to think that in just a little over 24 hours, this year will be gone. So much is different, but there's also a lot that hasn't really changed at all. I think I need to take some time to think about what I've accomplished and what I need to work on while I have some time to myself.

I hope you're all doing well!
