my friend ellie just celebrated her birthday and i miss her a whole heck of a lot. she’s encouraged me to grow and learn in ways i could have never imagined possible. i love her dearly.
some things never change while everything is changing. i love you, dad. thanks for driving me the first leg of our trip.
