We had a wonderful time today with my friend, who is an amazing, amazing photographer. Her work is stunning, and I am thrilled she photographed Dakin. I am also overjoyed to meet another of the wonderful women who supported me so much during some of the darkest times of my life. It was a privilege to meet you on person finally, Azure, and hope we get to seen you again soon!
