on january 23, i turned 33. every year, for the past 10 years i've been buying quince branches on my birthday. there is something about the contrast of pale pink blossoms against the winter landscape of january that gives me hope. my sweet little august was sick with a fever. we put an offer in on what we're hoping will be our first home. and, i started my birthday off recording new music... i can't wait to share it with you. it was quite a day.
