good morning, friends. thank you.
yesterday was a big day.
i'm not sure how the words will come for this post, i am speechless, and possibly in shock. somehow i want to find the words to convey just how much your support for our new little paperie means to both of us. all of the encouraging emails, posts, and sales have left us feeling so wrapped up in encouragement. which is a pretty great feeling when you put your heart into something. thank you, for helping to make our opening day feel like home and fireworks. we are ever so grateful.
today is a big day, too.
today i can cast my vote for hope. for a sense of community. for progress. for vision. for belief in a candidate, a new feeling. for this i feel a gratitude so big and wide. i am inspired, and called to action like never before. and if he wins i know what it will feel like. like home. and fireworks.
a fitting feeling for celebrating what would have been my mother's 62 birthday. i know she would have felt raised up and full of hope, too. happy birthday, mom.
