there’s something about the season that has me all chocked up.
I’m feeling the love.
I’m his, the one from above.
Like Lauren I keep fighting voices in my head.

There are Christmas moments that last everyday.
The problem is how do I make them last…
Yeah, tbese days I’m close VERY CLOSE TO hitting that button and finalizing my VERY FIRST BOOK. I’m working on lots of projects and most of them are out there.
