    Static
  10. My cousin and I went to visit grandpa in the hospital after the babyniece party. They had thought he had a stroke but he was fine and bragging about us to his nurses. Well, not me, I still don't play any instruments but I've still got time 😉
    Static
    (Grandpa played about 17 instruments and most times I saw him he asked "you picked up an instrument yet, kid?" I don't have those skills but I take after him in the joking entertainer way)
  11. My first week of my bullet journal.
    Static
    This line from La La Land gave me liiiiiiiiiiife. Also shoutout to @kate81 for the quote at the bottom.

  22. The venue was so small. There was less than 100 people in the room. I had a front row spot. They sang all my favorite songs. I had the camera in my face as I sang along and this got on the Facebook Live livestream. It was THE BEST.
    Static
