fairy tales
trapped in time
ivy storms the tower

This place is made of fairy tales. Somewhere in the brush or in the billowing clouds overhead there is a happy ending looking to be found. But really, the happy endings are all around us in everyday little things. It’s not really about the grand finale or the hero’s shining armor. It’s about the kiss you get when your husband comes home or the barista getting your coffee order absolutely perfect. The real happy ending is recognizing that fact and learning to love every day for what it is and looking forward to the next.
