  7. everyone's been crying a lot lately!!! we thought our town was haunted or something, the way the tears have been flowing for both happy, sad, and everything-in-between reasons. anyway, this momentous occasion does call for some tears of joy. i know you're going to have a blast and just melt into the world of your home for ten days! heaven! i'm happy for you.
