Invincible

Have you ever heard a song that resonated so much with you that you almost feel like it was written FOR you? I put my earbuds in the other day to work on some photography and stumbled upon the song ‘Invincible’ by Kelly Clarkson. I’d heard it once before but something about the earbuds piping…

Prisoner of Hope

So I’ve got this really fun app on my phone called Timehop. It allows you to see your status updates and photos from this exact day in history. I love checking to see what I was up to three or four years ago. The photographic displays of how fast my kids are growing up are NOT…
