A Little Sunshine On Her Skin

Happy Spring and happy Easter and Passover weekend everyone! The sun has been out quite a bit in New Jersey and the weather has been warmer so I felt this would be a great time to share another more personal and “sunny” style story (excuse the pun, I couldn’t help it). This one isn’t about me but about one of my best friends, Rachael Glanding, a 20-year-old from Mercer County, New Jersey.

If I could associate one symbol with Glanding, it would be the sun. She loves sunshine and lived in Arizona for several years before she moved to New Jersey with her family. Glanding often complains about the lack of heat and sunshine in New Jersey and constently wishes a loud to go back and visit Arizona. She wears a necklace with a sun shaped pendant every day, and a ring on her finger also shaped like the sun but with a smiling face that I helped convince her to buy because I knew she would love it. Glanding talked about getting a tattoo of the sun on her body for a long time, until October 2011 when she permanently inked a little sunshine onto her upper back to always remind her that the sun is always shining behind the clouds.
