i almost wrote this entry last night when the day had kicked me hard, but then decided to simply go to sleep & wake-up this morning to write. i am so happy i did. i feel so fresh... a new beginning today. so much to look forward to. so much that i won't get to. but it's okay. because it always is.

have a wonderful day, friends.

Haha! Natalie.

First, I haven't stopped listening to that album either. Second, I haven't stopped drinking tea (in the same tea pot featured btw!) in such cold weather.

Stay warm!
