My Heart Can't Take It (In a Good Way)

Wildfires, hurricanes, mass shootings, Harvey, Trump, the horizon like a set design of flat layers beautifully still with melting plastic and ash.

I force myself to remember that there are also school photos, library books, The Beatles, chai lattes, kitten videos, a piece of paper that Ozzy left on the table with a list of words he practiced writing in green crayon: egg, cow, vase, wagon, clock, pumpkin, nest, car, pretty, black, go. I tell my children that there is way more good in the world than there is bad. (I tell myself that, too.)

So this is so crazy, but is your daughter a gap model? I swear I just purchased a ruffle neck cardigan she was rocking.

You’re not crazy! Yep that was Zoey. She’s been modeling for about a year now, and does a lot with Gap. ;)
