A Wish List
I turn 33 in 3 days. I love the time around my birthday, not because it’s the holiday season, but rather because my birthday has always been a reflection point for me, a time to dream, make wishes, and plan.
For the last three years, I’ve been making lists, strange lists of what I wanted in my new year. I ask for odd things like an accent or to hear bells or take a stroll in the woods. Almost every wish is granted, not always the way I expect it to be, but always in a more beautiful way than I could have dreamed.
So I’ve started to make a new list for this year. Here are its beginnings:
- a garden and grove of fruit trees
- words that haven’t been spoken yet
- a spot to write
- a picnic at an abandoned homestead
- a field of wheat at sunset
- an opening to something unbelievable
- a home that wraps itself in the sounds of nature at night
- a star
- certainty with a splash of confidence and a dollop of generosity
- lightness of spirit
There’s more to come. And what a good year it will be…

Happy early birthday and an opening to something unbelievable and a star are now on my birthday wish list as well – 2014 is gonna be good, I have a gut feeling about it :)
Happy Birthday!! I love this idea. Wishes should be more organic like that :) And I have a good feeling about 2014 too.
Happy late birthday! I hope it was wonderful and I hope you had such a lovely holiday season :)
Oh my, the changes! I really shouldn’t have been gone so long… Love the new look :) and your list idea! Each one is so unique and tangible, as well. I hope 33 is a beautiful year for you, Brandi.
