Blue skies, light heart

I woke last Friday (my day off- thumbs up for the best schedule of my college career!) with sunlight streaming through my window. I had planned a writing day, but I couldn’t let blue skies go to waste. That’s the thing about so-so weather: when the sun comes out, you pay attention.

I wanted to share these photos with you, imperfect as they are. I am so blessed to be here, and I am so thankful for the people who helped me get to where I am. So here’s a little snapshot of Wales, as a thank you (you know who you are!).
