Affirmations

WHAT A FUN DAY. I didn't know that we would get together with the small group that we did for our event, but wow. We did. People had warned me: 'Don't expect too much; it's a small town.' I never expect anything, these days. I mean, with the conversation salons…

Sisältö voi olla kuvia, tekstiä tai ehkäpä pieni tarina. Millaisen lehden sinä voisit tehdä?

Why I Art
