Did you know Vanessa means butterfly in Greek? It’s one of my favorite things about my name.

Needless to say, I was kind of butterfly obsessed when I was younger.

The obsession still exists, but I like to think it’s more refined.

I knew a girl in middle school who was terrified of butterflies. I always thought that was so sad–I think it’s hard not to appreciate their simple yet complex beauty.
