early this morning i snuck out to the hammock with a homemade latte (national coffee day requirement, of course) and a book of poetry. it was chilly and peaceful and perfect for a little reflection. skimming through the book, i stumbled upon this poem.

late last week our little buddy christian earned his little angel wings and we are heartbroken. we are so very sad, but his fight was so inspiring and he touched everyone he met with so much light. we know his sweet little smile will live on in the hearts of so many.

if you'd like to send on any kind words or prayers, you can do so here. they would mean so much to his sweet family. also, his friends and family have set up a page to share his story, as well as a shop to help raise awareness on congenital melanocytic nevus. if you have a minute, please take the time to check them out.
