Working on this video with my brother and sister was the highlight of my week. My dad ended up absolutely LOVING … More Happy Father’s Day (with a video!)
My mom. Where do I even begin? I don’t know anyone more selfless, positive, and caring. I know my family and all of her friends would say the same thing. She taught me how to see the bright side of every situation, how to be independent (and not rely on no man!), that life and … More Happy Mother’s Day ❤
