Red hair from Scottish ancestry Red plaid, button up shirts Vaguely she knows me, but She can’t remember me Lost between worlds Wandering among tangled strings— Tangent thoughts She can’t find that one red wire The one that tells her who… Continue reading Red Boy
This Christmas has been the most relaxing, joyful Christmas I have experienced in a long time. There was a lot of love, a lot of family, and a lot of laughter.

So, it was pointed out to me that there were several huge errors in my book. I want to apologize to everyone for how inconvenient this is.

Everyday this week I have thought about writing a post, and then I just didn't. So here I am apologizing.
