"Ultimately having a zero-waste home is the end goal for me but in the meantime, I mostly just try to be conscious of what I’m buying for both my home (mostly kitchen) but also my closet and wardrobe.

But my sweet mom always reminded me that there is nothing wrong with what my family or I look like, and I consciously remind myself of that even in adult-hood."
"My dad owns this cologne by Issey Miyake that my late grandpa used to wear and every time he wears it, it reminds me of him. I loved my grandpa so much. He was the coolest cat with the sweetest heart."
