In this collection we explore death, loss, joy, love, and life. “Smiles through tears has always been my favorite emotion.” (Steel Magnolias) And that’s what this is, smiles through tears. Everyone is slightly depressed, there are some happy moments in there. A lot of love, and a lot of friendship. Slices of life, little bite sized nuggets of stories I’ve used to mimic my own life.
