I love this picture of me. I feel like I look beautiful... inside and out. A real princess.
Haha I found this silly picture on Brie's computer. It was 2015. Jude's 1st birthday party. It was Harry Potter themed and that was me being sorted wearing the sorting hat.
This picture was taken in Yellowstone on a weekend getaway with Brie and Tyson in June 2015. It was soon after my ex husband and I broke up and I got out of the hospital after miraculously recovering from liver failure.
Can you say DARK hair?! 2011ish? Also found on Brie's computer.
Brie, Jude, and I in 2015 right before my world fell to pieces.
