Dear Future Daughter,

Your twenties might sound more like Vanessa Carlton's 'White Houses' than an episode of FRIENDS. Remember, you get to hold your heart outside of your body. For months and years at a time. You will be lost and unlost over and over again. And you'll never get the goodbye your heart needs. Expect sadness. Be as forgiving to yourself for the mistakes you make as you are towards others. And when someone asks you to road trip to the sea, go. Because you must leave in order to trust yourself again. And only then. Can you return. Ps. Let your hair grow long and wild for the summer, it has always been so beautiful in the summer wind.
