Rantings and Ramblings

I haven’t written a post in a while. After the LLS fundraising competition I truly needed a break from writing and putting myself out there.

Well, here we go again.

5 Years Loving Luke

Today is the five year anniversary of my first ever date with Luke. I will never forget that date for so many reasons but mostly because of the way I felt. It was my first time meeting Luke in person, but it felt like I had known him for years and I had constant butterflies. He made me feel beautiful, smart, special, and safe.
