And that is something.

  1. Yeah girl. I absolutely feel this. Right now it feels like it will never thaw. But it will. We just have to be with what is.
    I do know you melted a lot of ice around my heart on Sunday, so thank you!

  2. Being with what is is so smart and so hard. We just have to keep plugging along. I’m glad we could brighten each other’s days at the hand lettering class. 🙂
