Let your emotions be big. Let the pride and the confidence take over if it makes you happy. Be forgiving and continue to focus not on getting better, but just being better.

Cheers to One Year, St. Lou

This was totally meant to be one of those, "saved drafts" that never sees the light of day. But I think these last 12 months are something to be celebrated so - cheers to all the friends who keep me sane, the family who supported my decisions, and the girl who stood strong and is continuing to make all of this happen.

be kind.

I'm tired of just seeing words like "ignorance, bigot, hypocritical, and greedy" come across my news feeds. I'm ready to showcase the compassion, acceptance, and love that I know the majority of this country has.
