Ambitions, both realized and unmet.
Moving homes; bodies; forward in time.
This new year hasn’t quite sunk in yet.
Spots of joy peeking through the hurt.
Trying to be good to ourselves in the New Year.
Smell ya later, THIS YEAR.
Finding cheer in those we hold dear.
Finals, moms, and anticipation about what’s to come.
Scenes from various states of exhaustion.
We miss our old lives. Badly.
