Happy Wednesday, my loves! I’m happy to be happy today. Today would have been Matt’s and my 7 year anniversary, and I’m proud to say that I’m okay that it’s not. Life is different, and sometimes weird, but I like weird. I still have my notebooks, thoughts, cat, Ke$ha, and glitter. Everything is beautiful, and today is a beginning I didn’t know I’d have.

“Goodwill has onion rings?? ..Oh.”
I absolutely love that person marching confidently down the street with a rainbow afro. I would high five this person.
