{Happy Birthday} Goodbye 32, Hello 33

   I of all people know that with trial comes triumph. We cannot have the good moments without the bad. It’s how the world turns, no one’s life is meant to be perfect.

Change, means losing weight and striving to be there kind of beautiful. There kind of beautiful is not my … Continue reading
