I miss you ... my love ... I felt very self-conscious today. It's the first time I've been out in public since I took off my ring. I felt vulnerable at first ... I wondered if people I ran into while I was working would notice ... I was terrified of having to answer any questions ... but ... after I time ... I started feeling better. It's nice not to have to pretend that I'm in a normal, happy marriage anymore. It's such a relief. I love you. It's kind of chilly today ... 16 degrees Fahrenheit.
