💃🏾Flashback Friday – I’ll Never Dance Again💃🏾

I mentioned before that I was a dramatic teenager. I have to admit that I was also a dramatic child. Growing up, one of my favorite activities was dancing.

🦷Flashback Friday – They went to pick up my tooth🦷

I've decided to start sharing moments from my childhood. In the very early years, I was quite active and adventurous. I loved riding my bike up and down my street.

Have you checked on your family and friends lately?

One of the simplest things you can do for another person is to just check in to see how they are doing.… Continue reading Have you checked on your family and friends lately?
