The ‘hood’ that raised us

I’ll start this post off with a simple “Thank you” to whoever is reading this.

Whether it’s been a random call or text to say Hi, a congratulations on my engagement, leaving a comment on a video I posted, or…

The beauty and total weird-ness of “engaged”

So for those of you that are late to the party… I’m engaged.
