4am

It’s 4am, and I’m wide awake.  Lord knows why. Maybe it's because I have too much on my mind, or maybe its because I’m so excited for my partner to have his first day at a new job. Either way, I’m up.  I was lying in bed just thinking about things that have happened recently… Continue reading 4am
