. . .

I live deep and love hard and I have a treasure chest spilling over with journals to prove it.

I remember why I first beganwhy the thought of ink and paper intrigued my artless heart. I needed someplace to heal, someplace to lay my brokenness down. A safe place, a way to put off my pain—so I picked up the pen, scribbled my heart between thin lines on blank pages and I've been living and writing ever since.

New York will always be my heart and my home but for now I'll be thawing out in the charming state of North Carolina.

I have a major crush on a Korean—I kind of married him and we’re kind of happy together.
