"You could just say it. And then it is."
-Eliza (Land) Fink

This is what she told me after we had a conversation about her not liking the fact that she did not know where she would be living in the next 6 months. She said that her younger self would have loved that. And I told her that I would love that idea right now. And she told me, "You could just say it. And then it is." And she is more right then she probably knows.

My sister posted on her Facebook wall that she wish she was a tulip. I told her she was a tulip, and this is how I know.

I know you are a tulip. Ask me how I know. I know because you came to life at the perfect time. Because your beauty is simple but blazing. Because your color stands high above everyone else. Because raindrops look good on you. Because you stand up straight and face every day. Because your presentation needs no aid. Because the sun shines on you. You are a gift to everyday. And most importantly because I am a tulip. And tulips know tulips.

All of this is very true about my sister Rachel. She is the greatest and I hope she knows how much she means to me.

This is one of her senior pictures. She is such a beautiful person.

So... I thought your facebook status was beautiful, and I googled it to see where you got it from. I discovered you wrote it. I also discovered your blog. Both of which are great discoveries.
