Live with intention. walk to the edge. listen hard. practice wellness. play with abandon. laugh. choose with no regret. continue to learn. appreciate your friends. do what you love. live as if this is all there is. -Mary Anne Rabmacher

I am from purple flowers climbing tall,
Shiny bottle caps and large black hats.
I’m from mashed bananas and candy canes,
Rocking chairs and old monopoly games.
I am from tea sets and dolls and everything pink,
From peeling window panes and hundreds of questions.
I am from caramel hair, and curious green eyes,
And short blonde hair and big blue elephant eyeys.
I am from endless days of fun and games,
And long colorful walks on cracked leaves.
I am from stars and stripes and worn and faded ballet shoes,
And the sound of the ocean in seashells of many hues.
I am from the house with purple flowers climbing tall,
And old bottle caps and silly black hats.
