I don't know about you, but I love outfitting for the summer! Bright colors, shorts, tanks, and my favorite pair of Birkenstocks.

{shout their worth}

I will never forgot the day. A day that is forever engraved into my memory. During our hospital stays, there were limited moments I could hold Bernadette. It was always complicated to hold her.
