I haven’t written like this since college
Love in the Time of Pandemic;
Some things come with a clear manual; cutting out a pattern, threading a bobbin, putting together an outfit. Others you just have to feel it out by heart, like designing the custom dress of your dreams, or finding new love in the time of pandemic. Any new project inevitably brings a ton of questions to circle your brain at night; Will it be worth the hassle? Am I even doing this right? I like to think that I’m the type of person that achieves whatever I set my heart to, since it’s gotten me through some of the most difficult times in life and helped me create my happiest memories. Over the past year I took up two major projects that kept me up late some nights, but even when the questions began to circle the brain, I felt nothing but reassurance. This is the story of how, in 2020, I met the love of my life and said yes to the dress designed and made by my hand.
