The Glee starlet was photographed out in public for the first time since Cory Monteith's death last Sunday.
Lea wore dark sunglasses and her 'Cory' necklace, which she often wore prior to his July 13 overdose from heroin and alcohol.
The 26-year-old is slowly returning to social media as well and leaning on her inner circle for support during this difficult time.
"Spending the day surrounded by great friends," she Tweeted Wednesday. "Hope you all are having a great day...Sending lots of love to you all."
She also shared a sweet pic of her and Cory smiling together on Monday and said he will "forever be in my heart."
Lea's birthday is later this month and Cory was reportedly planning a special surprise for her.
We're glad she's putting on a brave face and staying strong.
UPDATE: Lea's also getting back to work on set today. "First day of Glee today..And at my first wardrobe fitting for Rachel Berry for Season Five! I've missed her so much," she Tweeted.
Welcome back, Lea!
