matthew and i finally got out today and met up with my wonderful friend at the mall. we just talked forever while matthew slept and looked around. it was so needed. and i ran into two other friends while i was there. its weird that michigan is home again. i feel like ive been here forever, running into people i know, and i feel like im visiting, all at the same time. im ready to not feel like im visiting. but i know that it will just take a bit of time. and that is ok.
