Birthday MONTH: Day 7

I'm sitting here...

on the floor in the early morning sunlight.

My arms are crossed, I have tears in my eyes, I'm late for work (again) and I'm thinking...

"Now I know why I wait so long to open a gift."

I really cannot (absolutely cannot) find the right words to say for what you are about to see. This box is filled with so much beauty, so much love and SO much thoughtfulness that not even I can capture it with words nor photos. (especially in the state that I'm in at the moment as I can't even hold my camera straight, much less look through the lens with watery eyes)

You know what?

I'm going to have to post this later today...

I'm soooo overwhelmed.

So happy.

My heart is SO full of love.

I need a moment to let all of this soak in...
