Is blogging DEAD & do you need a Youtube Channel?!

There is a common theme in my business…. and I’m totally ok with it… I’m actually HONORED that this happens constantly.

Back in the day, I watched Jasmine Star like a hawk (Jstar, if you read this, it wasn’t in a creepy way, I promise!)

Graham’s Tenth Month

We’re in double digits. Double digits. I honestly can’t imagine my life without you. You’re so precious to me. I know I’m your momma but I’m convinced that you’re the sweetest boy on this planet. The way you reach for me when I walk in a room or smile at me from across a room when you realize that I’m close just melts my heart. Your beautiful blue eyes are kind and your bleach blonde hair is beautiful….. surprising, but beautiful. Your daddy and I just said today that you’re complexion almost looks like you’re an icelandic prince!
