I actually get excited…

    This is one of my favorites. Heads up, I’m likely to say that at least 50 more times. I think it’s perfectly fine to be in love with my own words. I poured my heart into every word of everything I’ve written. So far, everyone enjoys an interpretation of the words. So here is a small glimpse of the way these words look in my mind, broken down by line. you wake up…
