Last night I FINALLY met Dan Smith, after having been a huge Bastille fan for the past two and a half years.
He even took a picture of my “Laura Palmer”-inspired tattoo on his phone. Definitely a contender for best night of my life.

I tell everyone about you

Found him. 😍

Eyes on the prize
And I can’t capsize this time
'Cause there's somebody else in my boat
I was introduced to this song last night, and I’m embarrassed to say I didn’t know it beforehand. Even so, it immediately resonated with me and prompted a pretty wonderful moment of realization.
Usually when this time of year rolls around, I start listening to this on repeat, which inevitably conjures mental images of sitting alone on a frosty window ledge, tears rolling gently into a steaming cup of tea…
Alright, maybe I’m being a little dramatic. It’s a gorgeous song, and when you’re alone it is somehow both comforting and devastating.
But I have a new anthem this year as fall and winter approach because I finally have someone, and he’s here with me where - as far as I’m concerned - he belongs.
And I’m not saying we should all rely on someone else to be happy. That’s a dangerous game to play, and we should all be able to find happiness simply within ourselves. But truth be told, I wasn’t really me before he came along. I was missing a very important part of me with no idea what that part was until I found it.
So this year, when the snowy weather comes rolling in, I’ll be graciously thanking whatever lucky star thought I was deserving enough to be this happy.
It’s cold outside, but I’m just fine.
You are mine to keep warm.
"it’s about who you miss at 2 in the afternoon when you’re busy, not 2 in the morning when you’re lonely."
Those four walls now are the only place that I can breathe out
Those four walls now are home
Those three words now are the only thing that came to save me
Those three words now are home
