Harley Burlando  I believe in the sand beneath my toes //and the four right cords that can make you cry ✌🏼️🍍👽

Happy anniversary to you ruining my only child days of pure bliss!!! Love you so much you strange little globe trotter. You’ve come a long way from stuffing nerf balls in your shirt and following me around and asking first dibs of my prime boogers. Now you’re all grown up and adventurous af and half way across the world for the second time during your birthday! I am so proud of your bravery and tenacity! Thanks for always being a good sport my dude 😂 couldn’t ask for a better sis!!

My education is an adult.
My education could order a beer.
My education is in it’s 18th year.
And that’s a wild thought. Yesterday was my 18th first day of school. It’s weird to be nervous about something when you realize just how long you’ve been doing it. Weird to have doubts about how smart and capable and deserving you are of the knowledge and skills you want. To question your dedication to something you have fought for and against for 75% of your life. Yes, sometimes it’s a fight. There have been times when I had to beg to go to school, where school was my only escape and where school was my sanctuary. There have also been times where I hated it and cried not to go and faked sick and skipped to be anywhere else. I used to dream of attending university and fantasize about growing up. I catch myself still, waiting to grow up, even though I’m literally in the thick of it. I’ve convinced myself it’s not worth almost as many times as I’ve talked myself through.
I have missed assignment deadlines, dropped classes, and failed a handful of finals. I’ve met profs who belong in hell and profs who were sent by the universe to push me where I need to be. And yet among all of this, I’ve found my passion, I’ve found my voice and I am so proud to have found the person I am meant to become within the walls that have held me up.
So cheers to lil harls for pushing through, for making it this far, and for probably graduating some time soon. HAPPY 18th FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL TO ME!!!

You’re my peach scone bra 🍑
Sorry I backed outta biking 30 minutes outta the city and made you turn back so I could drive myself, subsequently getting you caught in a torrential downpour biking through the dark while I followed behind in the warmth and comfort of my car. Somehow you’re still down to scoop me up for pic ops. IF THAT AINT LOVE HOMIE IDK.

*cough cough* Throw back to when I thought bc was smokey last week 😶 .

Also I bought this backpack in a teeny shop in Belize when I was 15 and I’m just now realizing it’s 9 years old and it has been through some wild times 🦑

Maybe it’s the peach vodka and the +30 heat but my heart is HAPPY!! Cheers to hunnies and boats and beers and babes and all the daddies. Boat daddy, dinner daddy, lobster daddy, Zach da-deeee and my MOMMMAAAZZ

Very unhappy birthday to this pain in my ass. You’re not loved or valued by me at all and if you could quit following me on adventures that would be great.
Couldn’t imagine spending my free time, school nights, vacation days, intimate family get togethers, and important life moments with someone more indifferent. You pretend to be hard af but your heart is bigger than the whole solar system.
Here’s to the worlds greatest guy turning a quarter century! 💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚💚

Not in Kansas City but we’re still shufflin’
Spending another Canada long weekend with my 2 least favourite people 😏

Since I ironically spent all day inside selling people indoor sunshine instead of outside soaking up the first day of summer, here’s a rare photo of @madi_rachel ‘s foot and a tbt to hung over pool days ✌🏼#freeweekoftanningifyouspotherfoot #peepmadisfoot2018

Dad’s unusual form of punishment in high school was making me write and rewrite essays until he deemed them acceptable. Not just my school essays, but on topics he’d assign me in my free time. As annoyed and frustrated as it made me then, I can finally appreciate it now. He realized my potential long before I did.
Now I’m pursuing a career as a professional writer and I have his high expectations to thank for it.
We share long legs, weird postures, insomnia, a love for weird facts and conspiracy theories, Netflix binges, sour soothers, bad puns, perfectly crafted playlists, an iconic lizard grin, and a preference for seeing opportunity in the midst of every disaster. Dads are cool, but mine’s the coolest. HAPPY DAD DAY YA’LL
