For the past month at this time in the evening, @carmenaranjo9 and I would be on the couch watching #PrettyLittleLiars (don’t judge). I miss this girl. A lot. She is intelligent, silly, adventurous and kind. Opening our home has brought the most amazing teens into our lives. #foreignexchange #ilovemyspanishdaughters #ihavetwo

Be still my heart, Brad just left to do an errand and brought a reusable bag all on his own. We’ll have 2 more kids on a farm in 5 years tops… and he’ll think it was all his idea. (Also, Brad is hawt!) @inobrad777 #americarhmv

One of the (many) awesome things about having a young hip cousin close by, is all the fun selfie opportunities. @ellehastwofeet
