As the week has gone on I cannot help but continue to reflect on what has happened in paris. the devastation that this city has endured is truly heartbreaking. i have felt so helpless as i think about all of those whose lives were lost, the families who lost loved ones, and all the ways this city will be forever changed.... 

but in the midst of all this sadness, seeing people from all over the world, in all different walks of life support this sweet city has truly been inspiring. although it cannot + will not take away the devastation of what happened - seeing that people can still be kind, thoughtful, and selfless is something that will never grow old. 

sending lots of love + prayers to the people of paris. our hearts are with you.
