A Love Letter To My Bed For Always Being There, Rest Assured

A Love Letter To My Bed For Always Being There, Rest Assured

I love you more than words can describe.

To my beloved,

You are the only thing I think about all day and what I look forward coming home to at night. You make me feel safe, secure, warm and relaxed. At night, I take comfort knowing that I’m with you and it pains me to leave you every morning. It’s hard to get up knowing that I probably won’t see you until I come home. I love getting tangled in your sheets and the way you smell after laundry day.

You’re the true love of my life and I’m grateful for you.

Thank you for being consistently there for me. Through new sheets, pillows, room layouts and comforters. Through all my sick days, broken-hearts and cold winter nights, you have kept me warm. You’ve been through my all-nighters and are the first thing I turn to when I get exhausted and worn out. You were the first love and will be there until the day I die and even then, you will still stand. Year after year after year, you’ve been there for me...you’re so loyal to me, you’ve never had another and I always know that you will never leave me no matter what happens.

For that, I love you.

Thank you for listening to my tears, laughter, secrets and dreams. When I can’t sleep, you’re there for me, through it all. When I have a bad dream, you’re the first one to know. You’re always down for a chill Netflix day and never oppose when I bring in food or my cat. You love listening to my music but hate it when I’m wearing shoes. I love how you’re soft and comforting. Being with you means I’m home and that’s the best feeling in the world.

Nobody knows me like you do because you’re there for me every single night and at all hours during the day.

Sometimes I cheat on you when I go on vacation or sleepover at a friend’s house and I hate knowing that you’re home, waiting for me to come back to you. Rest assured, you’re still my number one and there’s just nothing else like you in the world.

I can’t imagine a world without you and I hope that we continue to grow together as the years go on.

You are unique, you are the best part of my day and you are so loved and appreciated by me. Thank you for never failing me and for always welcoming me home with open arms. I will never find another one like you, my love. You live in the place of honor in my room and in my heart. You’re my favorite piece of furniture I own and I can promise you that that feeling will never change.

Thank you for everything, my dear, sweet bed. I love you more than words can describe.

I’ll see you tonight?

My brother and his wife recently blessed our family with the sweetest bundle of joy on planet earth. OK, I may be a little bias but I believe it to be completely true.

There is something about an aunt that is so fun. An aunt is a person you go to when you think you're in trouble or when you want something mom and dad said you couldn't have.

When you make a girl an aunt, she gets to skip on the difficulty of disciplining.

Being an aunt means you get to be fun. Not to say I wouldn't correct my nephew if he were behaving poorly, but for the most part, I get to giggle and play and leave the hard stuff for my brother.

When you make a girl an aunt, you give her the best listening ears.

As of right now I only listen to the sweet coos and hungry cries but I am fully prepared to listen to all the problems in his life in the future.

When you make a girl an aunt, you make her the happiest person in the world.

I cannot wait to watch my precious nephew grow into the amazing person that I know he is going to be.

The One Thing Everyone Should Do Before They Graduate

Why I wish everyone could have shared in my end of school adventure.


The end of freshman year was filled with the abundant stress of final exams, teary-eyed goodbyes, and last looks at my dorm room on South Campus. The academic year was overwhelmingly busy, and I tried my best to soak in every single moment as a first-year college student. But as I'm sure many of you can understand, it's not always possible to make time for the adventures we so desperately desire. I found myself saying "I want to do that!" all year long, and here it was the last week of the year and my bucket list had barely been touched. All those Philadelphia excursions, dreamy coffee shop dates, and campus explorations that I looked forward to never ended up panning out…

… until last Thursday night.

With about half the freshman class moved out of South Campus, everything felt a little strange. There was barely a dinner rush at all in Donahue Dining Hall, and my room looked so empty it almost made me sad. Naturally, I called up a couple of friends. Within minutes, we met in the lounge, and we were off for our adventure.

Every single day on the way to labs in Mendel Hall, I walked past the beloved Falvey Fountain. It had become such a consistent part of my routine that walking past it felt like it was a necessary daily occurrence. But this time, we didn't walk past. In fact, we stopped dead in our tracks and admired its color changing beauty for a brief moment.

And then we dove in!

Yes, we jumped right into the fountain. First the daring adventurer of the group, then his sidekick, then the skeptic, and finally myself. This was definitely not allowed, but no one was around, and more importantly, no one cared. Being knee deep was freezing, but the adrenaline rush was too much to suppress. So we submerged further, dunking each other and splashing the icy water literally everywhere. My wet hair made way for the most epic hair flip of all time, and we all laughed joyously.

All the stress of looming final grades and the completion of projects, the bittersweet goodbyes to our newfound families, and the hassles of packing up for the year were washed away in that fountain, drowned in the euphoria of the moment. We were officially baptized in summer as it dubbed us the kings and queens of adventure.

Afterward, we wrung out our soaking clothes and snapped a quick pic of our drenched selves. Trying to escape the scene hastily, I dropped my bag of M&M;'s. They spilled everywhere, leaving streams of melty chocolate and food coloring running through the aftermath of our fountain dive. The scene looked like a bit of Willy Wonka's chocolate factory had exploded from the fountain and into the night.

I am far from kidding when I say that adventure is a must for everyone, at any stage of life. Whether it's fountain diving at Nova, or sky diving in New Mexico, something about us as human beings needs the unusual, exciting, and even hazardous experiences. This one was particularly cleansing and absolutely unforgettable.

So I implore you: go forth this summer and be adventurous! Explore hidden places, try new eats, shuffle a stranger's playlist, introduce yourself to someone on a whim, or just get in the car and drive with no destination in mind. This summer is for the bold; this summer's for you.

Happy adventuring!
