Hello my lil sweet pea! Goodness gracious, what a fucking year! I went into 2022 full of hope and anxiety with giant dreams and even bigger fears. The year was everything I could have wanted and nothing like I expected. It was full of ups and downs and heartbreak and happiness. But what made this year defy anything I could have imagined is the kindness of you all. Releasing a book is a wonderful, horrible thing; putting a piece of your heart into the world and hoping people find it and love it, or, if they hate it, praying they won't tell you how much. I kind of picture it as taking a really artsy, intricate nude (twisting your body into a position it really shouldn't be in then pulling an essential muscle) and releasing it into the world for critique.
