“Love and intimacy are not simple topics. There is no handbook for how to fall in love or find the one, just experiences. Receipts of Ungiven Gifts is an offering; a collection of experiences and realizations about love and intimacy. Sometimes you aren't meant to fall in love with your significant other, you're meant to fall in love with yourself. Thank you for indulging in this journey with me.”
