Casual Magic

I’ve become the kind of person that fills pages and pages of my journal with everything I’m grateful for. I handwrite thank you notes to the air that fills my lungs; the legs that hold me up; to fried rice (for being delicious); to the barista that greets me in French with a smile on […]
