Jordan Barkin, a talented editor over at Veranda, graciously shared with me three wishes for my summer project. Here is what was on his mind:
I hope that people will continue to value the authenticity of honest materials. I'd rather see tarnish than varnish.
I wish that I could arrange flowers as well as Atlanta-based florist Heath Alan Ray.
I wish that everyone could have a mother as wonderful as mine.
