I was about nine when I fell in love with putting words together. I remember feeling like I had found something spectacular hidden within the puzzle pieces that words are, and found a beauty in the picture I could create when I made them fit seamlessly beside one another. Ever since, I’ve been telling my story. From padlock-bound diaries eight editions in, to publicly announced inner workings of my complicated mind, this is my pursuit of a life worth remembering. One that is lived brightly and full of adventure, encased with love and has always promised to always illuminate the beauty still left in this world for others to see.
