#2361 – Recent Stories

ENGLISH Hello, it has been awhile since I last posted here ๐Ÿ˜€ . So as my Instagram followers have known, I have been back from my 2019 year end trip to Canada since last week. I will share the stories more on this latter on; but in one word, it was amazing! ๐Ÿ˜€ With six…

#2359 – The Last Week of 2019

ENGLISH To clarify, the last week of 2019 before I went on my 2019 year end trip that is, haha.
