I’m participating in a sponsored campaign by Skype to share about how their service keeps families and friends connected when distance tries to keep them apart.

A Tribute For Mother’s Day

Do you have someone you love? Sure you do. We all do. We were created to share our hearts and desire companionship. With mother’s day just around the corner, I thought I’d share a little bit about two of the people I have loved the most in this world. Inspired by the J&J Campaign called […]
