What a great, and technically savvy, way to keep us posted. I LOVE it and all of you. These memories will last a lifetime. We all can make the world a better place each and every day through our basic interactions. You could have knocked on someone’s door that was in desperate need of love and changed that person’s day, or even life. Thank you! 💙💜
