Richmond, Virginia

Dear 6 year old me,

Please don’t be mean to the little boy down the street, who says he has a crush on you. It’s not weird, and he’s so sweet

and one day it will be ten years later, and he will have grown up to be the most incredible guy in the world.

And he might look at someone else that way, or you might not know how he feels about you. You will think back to times he asked to hold your hand, and the times he would ask you to dance with him and wish that you had. That you could now.

My dear six year old self, be nice to him. You’re going to fall in love with him one day.
