my truest shade.

Have you ever recognized--right in the middle of a moment--that you feel so wholeheartedly yourself? Like, for one reason or another, you seem to have snapped into place? Like all your walls have come down, all your reservations abandoned, and the only thing left standing is the very truest shade of yourself? 

Well, somehow, I've felt that way all week... and I don't know if it's the crisper air clearing out my head or all the extra time I've spent with friends or some random sort of epiphany, but it's been absolutely liberating. And I'm so, so grateful.

i feel like this often, and i do believe it is the crisp fall weather that initiates this.

you have such a way with words, and conveying feelings [: so inspiring.
