I Used To Break Every Mirror
There's an old saying, "breaking a mirror brings seven years of bad luck," and though I never remembered physically breaking one, I grew up looking into any mirror and saw cracked pieces.

I developed poor self-esteem and made careless life choices that hindered growth throughout my twenties. However, something changed in me when I turned twenty-five; I threw caution to the wind and sold my car, moved to California, followed a small path to expand my passion for writing, moved back home to South Carolina, then moved to Michigan, and stumbled into finding the beginning of a mirror I couldn't break.

Running and I have been in a relationship since I was in middle school. I joined the middle school cross-country team and fell for the sport immediately.

I am Canadian. Being Canadian brings a strong affiliation with nature. I grew up on the great big expanse of the glorious Canadian Prairies on a small family farm.
To All the Girls I've Lomi-Lomi'ed Before
