1. When E sings along to the songs I play for her in the car with me, trying to match my pitch and get the words right. When she wakes up from a nap and snuggles into my chest for just a minute while she’s still waking up. When I ask her, “are you my buddy?” and she smiles and replies cheerfully “buddy! buddy!”


2. When my nails are painted.


3. When the apartment is clean.


4. Getting dinner with my Dad, teaching him how to use instagram. Walking about a Victoria’s Secret with my Aunt searching for a particular bra and cracking up laughing over it.

5. Texts all day long from my beloved Troy.


6. Waking up next to Maverick in the morning and sleepily making our way to the car to go get bagels on a Sunday morning.
