393C39CE-5219-49E7-8B0E-F12FEA914073Alex handed Vicky an 8×10 envelope with nothing written on the outside. “What’s this?” she asked him.

    Oh – what a lovely story! To take the leap and go to the City of Lights, coming out in a wonderfully diverse and beautifully diverse area is such a great leap of faith, hope, and self-love ❤ What a wonderful story — thank you so much for joining us again this week ❤
