“Well, hi!” Those were the words I could expect any time I wandered into the kitchen of one of the women who impacted my life in beautiful and profound ways, my great-grandmother. When I was with her, I felt loved and important and I want the same for anyone who wanders into this space.

And so:

Well, hi! You’re so welcome here, reader, and I want you to know that. This is meant to be a space of speaking up, community, and storytelling because those are all the things that evoke the best and scariest emotions I’ve got. Send the email, babe. Send the text. Make the phone call. I’m always on the other end if you need me.
