Untitled Book

Let me just say: I have always been against adults writing memoirs/biographies when they’re younger than 50. I know by that age we have TONS of life experience but in my mind, we still have so much more to live, it just doesn’t make sense to me to write a book about our lives when…

This pregnancy was very…

Free Fall Events in NYC
