This is an apology letter to the both of us for how long it took me to let things go.

For a star to be born, there is one thing that must happen: a gaseous nebula must collapse.

So collapse.
Crumble.
This is not your destruction.

This is your birth.

Happiness is not the absence of problems, it’s the ability to deal with them.

You have to believe there are kisses and laughs and risks worth taking.

happy 18th birthday Mallory!!!! you are one of my best friends and I can’t even begin to explain how much your friendship means to me! we have so many memories together and some of them I don’t think I’ll ever forget for the rest of my life! you are sweet, caring, a good listener, funny, loving, and an amazing friend!!! before I met you, I felt like I didn’t have many close friends at school, so getting to be your friend has been such a blessing. you need to hurry and get back from camp so we can hang out and talk about musicals and I can take you on your birthday surprise!! I love you so much and I hope your 18th birthday is as spectacular as you are!!! xoxo ❤️❤️❤️ @mallory_veil (at if you know this song, youre awesome)
