1. T. G. I. F. For real. Hand me a glass of wine and cozy sweatpants! 2. Is anyone as obsessed with Scandal as I am? I only started watching it over the summer (thank goodness for Netflix), and I am all caught up. I really look forward to the episodes every single week. They’re […]

Brooklyn Grace Oh, my spitfire. You never disappoint your mama, that’s for sure. The last time I wrote an update about you seems light years away.
