Alice in Baker Street

She also had some awesome things to say about Ruta!
“Out of the truth and grit of reality, can come so much beauty. Even if it’s not the typical beauty, but it’s the beauty of reality and people and relationships.”

Yup. Pretty much sums up Ruta’s writing lol.

Let me know what you guys think and send me your pics with Out of the Easy.
