I am infinitely and forever grateful I was able to be alive at the same time as you.
I have never been so proud of someone as I am of you. To have a sister is to have a different version of yourself, and to me that means our souls are connected forever. I will never forget our silly “nighty-night” ballads and secret handshake as kiddies. Sometimes I would sneakily spit on my hand before the handshake just for shits and giggles, and I knew you’d be the better of us two the day you outwitted me at my own game and spit on your hand, shocking me at the taste of my own medicine 😂 The only gal who matches my love of The 1975 and the Jonas Brothers, and the only one who puts up with my shit with such grace. As I watch you grow into your own, I thank the Universe every second for every breath you take in this reality, and it is my solemn promise I will take care of you in every realm sissy, wherever you may go. Happy Birthday squish. “and you’ll be here in my arms, just sleeping..” — Annie Lennox // Into the West

*Steve Irwin voice* here we have a wild 22 year old Breanna in her natural habitat...surrounded by the different elements of Nature...water, earth, fire, air...being elegant and klutzy at the same time......tune in to see what 23 year old Breanna will do..😘🌊⛰🌞🌬
Have you ever met someone that makes you feel like you’re dreaming while you’re awake? Her every movement is a wish come true; art being created in front of your very eyes. My Muse. She’s the feeling right before a rollercoaster drops and right as the sun comes up. Freedom. She is free. In the way she chooses to be, and the way she naturally is. She teaches you how to wield your pain and keep your eyes open during it no matter what. We are ‘too much’ for this world and I am proud that we own that; we nurture our wild woman within regardless. Breanna is a gift. She is what it means to feel something otherworldly. Bree Elise, thank you for everything that you are working towards and for everything that you have ever been. You are one of the only things that makes sense to me now; I realize as time goes forth you always have been, ever since we were children, and beyond that, since I know this is not our first rodeo. I love you, my constant. May this year flourish you in the self-love you so wholeheartedly deserve. Happy Birthday to an inspiration. PS this is one of my favorite pictures I’ve taken of you on one of our magical journeys. Our next adventure is always around the corner, and for that I am eternally grateful. ✨🌌🌈👩❤️💋👩🧚🏻♂️🧚🏻♀️👽🐾

happy earth day Cooper 💚 every day is for you, spent in your honor, but today especially is. do something today for Mother Nature. think; what would Cooper Kean do? 🌱
to grow stronger, i haven’t cried less, i’ve cried more. i’ve screamed to every god in the skies, and anyone who would listen really. i’ve been in my own world, and this band has been the background music. this past year has been the hardest of my life, and when i was unable to say certain words, this band said it for me. they’ve given me a platform to express emotions that are harder to understand like anger, selfishness, confusion, denial; unique heartbreak. seeing them live, in person, human to human, helped solidify the strength i have been creating. we’re strangers on paper but i feel more understood because of each member, and that’s a rarity. that’s what all this life is about. all of us trying to understand each other. feeling understood is becoming as important to me as feeling loved, and i trust the Universe that this is indeed growth. thank you endlessly Dance Gavin Dance. you help me lose and find myself. also i cannot stop watching this video of Tilian hitting those NOTES 💘 and i really can’t believe they played Chucky vs The Giant Tortoise 😭
Count Bassy // Dance Gavin Dance ...CAN CONFIRM I GOT SENTIMENTAL ABOUT IT...!!!!!
appreciation to this beautiful soul for being such a passionate person. her strength leaves me in awe and i am truly proud of how hard she has been working to grow, step by step, every single day. thank you for being you Madison 🙏🏻
Cooper Mackenzie Kean, I can never find the right words to say when you’re not physically here in front of me, so I’ll start off with this; I love you. 10 months today. I never imagined I would be starting a new year without you because that is never the way it was supposed to be. The entire Universe has changed its course and the history of time itself just as confused and changed as we are when you left. What is time, really? I know it isn’t linear because I feel your love happening to me all the time, like I did when I was 4 and like I did when I was 21, and I know I’ll feel it when I’m old and gray. I am sure you are learning how time works, how maybe the possibilities of yesterday today and tomorrow are happening all at once and that love exceeds the power of time regardless. I wanted to tell you that wherever you may end up in this Universe, I will be searching for you. There’s this song A Lovely Place To Be by Patrick O’Hearn that I used to play to lull us to sleep, I know you remember. That feeling when you look around and you’re tending the fire, and one of your friends is laughing, another one is singing badly, the rustle of the trees from the wind gives you goosebumps, and you take it all in and think to yourself; this is a lovely place to be. That song is the embodiment of what that feeling feels like. Of what a lovely place to be feels like. Cooper, you are the loveliest place I have ever been. The little spirits in this painting are from Japanese folklore known as Kodama. They are tree spirits. They protect and pass down knowledge of the trees and are a sign that a forest is healthy. Echoes reverberated throughout nature and the sound of a fallen tree is said to be the plaintive cry of a kodama. They can be especially heard when a person dies. Ever since you passed, nature is more detailed and looks, sounds, and feels different. When kodama present themselves, it means you are worthy of Mother Nature. That is depicted in this art. That although you aren’t physically here on Earth anymore, your spirit is amongst us in the trees you always cherished and in the nature you always took care of.

humility embodied never once asks for a thank you calloused hands; golden hue we’ve all got a moral compass somehow he always chooses the right direction sacrifice is a choice; and yet you’d never once have to ask him to think of you — happy birthday film & poem to Ski
one of the most “me” photo shoots i have ever done. creating this was pure magic. this is the other edit also by me 🌊 in the water, i am beautiful. — kurt vonnegut, 2 years ago today

she is not sunshine and rainbows i dare not insult her like that she is lightening and thunder the push and pull of waves are even frightened by her in a world seemingly full of impossibilities you are proof that anything is possible the dawn is always awaiting and she is flying amongst the horizon with this smile — a poem i wrote drunkenly for a fox (a natural disaster is still mother earth’s child and we both love you ) film by Breanna Hourigan @blondyb july 2017
gordie: d’you think i’m weird? chris: definitely. gordie: no man, seriously. am i weird? chris: yeah. but so what; everybody is weird. — name that film and while you’re at it wish this special not so lil bean the happiest of days thank you for being you. my life’s kindness is having you as a sister. i love you endlessly. i am ecstatic we built a fort in the backyard’s sunroom and get to escape reality for a little while with old films, crystals, tonzo blankets, pillows, candles and the starry sky. here’s to growth and being weird 🍨💕🌱 HAPPY BIRTHDAY EVANGELINA AMIA! ♋️
breanna and i went to lake michigan to breathe deeper and we wanted to feel free so we were naked basically the whole time and these hippies came up to us and did yoga with us and not once mentioned how we were naked and just accepted it and can you imagine if we lived in a world that did not sexualize the human body and instead embraced it as natural...a world that is free of judgment and sexism and labels...💭 film by Breanna Hourigan @blondyb july 2017
and it’s in the way she pounds the steering wheel she knows every word to this song and it’s in the way she blows out smoke she’s been here before and it’s in the way she looks at you when you’re not looking you’d be so privileged film july 2017
this time last year film by Breanna Hourigan @blondyb

I am beyond grateful Cooper brought together all of these special souls throughout his life and continues to. Cooper, you are the epitome of Love. We continue his legacy by loving every blade of grass, every bug, every plant, every rainfall, every living thing and of course every tree. May this tree grow in honor of your existence and your infinite love. (thank you for sneakin this picture @sarnasinsta , I absolutely cherish it )
