Dear Sacramento

Dear Sacramento

Dear Sacramento,

You’ve been exactly what I needed you to be.  You’ve been a place of new beginnings.  The first place I ever moved to, my first apartment, the first place I lived with my husband, the place I started my business and blog.  I had a lot of new beginnings and I was only able to have them because of you.  You helped me grow.  You helped me heal.  You nurtured me in ways I could never have asked and for that I will always thank you for.  I was weary of you and a bit afraid but you showed me the beautiful things that I have and the wondrous things I need to work on.  But most of all you made me feel safe, secure and capable.  You held a mirror up to my face and refused to move it until I acknowledge the woman staring back at me and learned to respect, love and treasure her.  Thank you.  I’ll always love you for that.

                                Love,

                                       Olivia
