Last week I had the privilege to fly with The Princess to meet several other families who share the same genetic disorder, Emanuel Syndrome, as our little girl.

Life Is Better When…

you smile.


 hold hands,

allow others to support you,
surround yourself with love,

allow yourself to be held,

 love others freely, 

take time for a facial, 

 spend time with
quality individuals,

make time for friends
that understand you

and always remember your friends at home.
