I think that because of this, my happiest moment is actually quite simple. I spent hours customizing what I wanted it to look like. Pink and white tie-dye with blue wheels.

Whether they were getting surgery, or had gotten into a car wreck, they always had a smile on their faces and were filled with positivity! I worked in the hospital...

A good home is comprised of three key elements: privacy, connection, stability. Privacy allows a home to be a sanctuary, an escape. Being connected means one shares a special bond with one’s home, whether through family ties or sacred moments. Stable homes provide a sense of security and unchanging familiarity. Without these elements, a home is merely a shelter. Whether one is facing embarrassment or just needs some time alone, privacy is always a plus. Privacy allows an individual...
