Muse Monday Vol. 15

Adventures: Last week I had the absolutely humbling experience of bringing my mom’s ashes to Galway, Ireland. For those who know me, you’re aware that being Irish is something I’m very proud of; and I definitely got that from my mom. For Christmas 2 years ago my stepdad bought an all inclusive trip to Ireland for her, scheduled to leave in the beginning of the Summer 2015.

Muse Monday Vol. 13

First, I’d just like to say thank you so much to everyone who has reached out in regards to my mom, and everyone who was able to attend the showing 2 weeks ago. My mom’s passing has been a rough time on my family and I, but the love and support that has been shown to us truly cannot be beat. We are very blessed. Because of my I’ll Love You Forever, I’ll Like You For Always post, I held…
