Dear little six-year-old girl, I can see you. With your long, brown hair pulled into two braids and tied with red ribbons, beloved overalls, and t-shirt; you seek adventures and believe you can fly.

Sometimes I write because I have something weighing on my heart. Other times, I write because I am avoiding homework. This post is a result of the later. Fall is almost here.
