Hey friends, and happy new week to Y-O-U!

Hello and happy new year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday with loved ones. I spent the past 3 weeks in my hometown in Poughkeepsie, New York where I rang in the holidays with family.

I’m terrible at … More 2 weeks with my brother in Pittsburgh + surprise visit with our parents!
