One of my dearest friends, Lalee, is going through a really tough time at the moment. She has lost someone close to her, and is hurting a great deal. It breaks my heart to see her so upset, I care so much for this girl.

Grief is awful, I wish I could make it all better, but nothing I can do will help unfortunately. The introduction I would normally give this gorgeous, hilariously funny, and fiesty woman seems irreverent given where she is at at the moment, but since she is a big part of my life, and coming to Italy with me, I am sure she will feature frequently in my entries in the future.

Please send her and the family of her loved one much sympathy and love.
