Always, Always Choose to Dance

This is my best friend of almost 20 years, Tracy. We’ve grown through a LOT of versions of ourselves over the years and look at us, still together. She’s the one with the goods. The holder of all the secrets and the awkwardness. She’s seen all the ugly and insecure bits and helps me move…
