thanksgiving




photos by jonathan morffi

this entire year has been quite the whirlwind. i don't know what it is about even-numbered years (yes, i'm rather suspicious regarding numbers) that always throw me for a loop. as i sat around this year's thanksgiving table in my friend's gorgeous house in brooklyn, i couldn't help but to really and truly feel thankful for all the trials and tribulations this year bestowed upon me. i've learned a great deal about love, truth, about standing true to who i am (self belief), but most importantly about forgiveness. this was the year of forgiveness and resilience.
  
things didn’t work out because, well, greater things were in the works. it’s so difficult while we’re blind and hurting and don’t know which way is up. but, if you have faith in anything, have faith in the fact that the universe has a beautiful way of straightening things out far better than we ever could. you may not see it today or tomorrow, but you will look back in a few years and be absolutely perplexed and awed by how every little thing added up and brought you somewhere wonderful– or where you always wanted to be. you will be grateful that things didn’t work out the way you once wanted them to.

  2. I love your hair and you're totally right. I feel like this year's been one step forward, two steps back. But we gotta keep on doing what makes us happy!
