We’re looking inside a chunk of time that we didn’t know what she was doing, so I refuse to let her go. I’m attached. She’s been with us forever, we love her. We love our Widow, and we love our Widows. So it’s inspiring to see where we’ve gone from where we were, and I can’t imagine the reaction. I’m just so excited that the world will get to see it.”
