In that moment of openness and looking, sometimes I can also see. See the woman inside. See the expression of that woman on the outside. See where the window between inside and outside wants thinning.

I am so grateful for you and the incredible encouragement and positivity you have given me here since the blog's inception in 2014...whoa. Wherever you are, here is a hug from me to you. xo
