& I just got home to find this direct message from @vanessa_alice and am crying 😭💗 This is such an incredibly sweet, beautiful, and thoughtful thing!!!. I am blown away that she did this for us!! When I met her, I thanked her for coming to Detroit as it has been really hard for me to get out of the house.. And As much as I wanted to check out the mural festival I felt like I wasn't ready to talk to people yet. So when I found out she was going to be putting up a mural I I had to go downtown to meet her. I told her these things when I thanked her for taking time out of her work to talk to me, and for putting her work up in our city. I didn't tell her these things to make her feel bad, just to let her know how much I appreciated her time and her work. It's hard to put into words how I have been feeling, and how any action big or small made for us means more than I can say. I am so grateful for all of the love and goodness that still exists in life.. And I'm immensely grateful for her dedicating this to Chelsea and I !!! ✨💗💓💗✨ #somuchlove
