My outfit for today 🙈 Thank you to everyone who sent their love and light towards me on my special day. I am truly grateful to have been blessed with another year in spite of what’s going on in this world. On that note, I acknowledge my privilege — I have a roof over my head, food on the table, and even the opportunity to find a way to celebrate today. But at the same time, I acknowledge that my privilege puts me in a position where I can help others. If you’d like to give me a gift, please swipe through this post to see the opportunities to help others — especially those displaced from work because of the lockdown and the frontliners who continue to put us first. My wish this year is for all of us to get through this virus ordeal together — mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually. And since it’s my birthday, pls allow me to remind you… be honest about your travel history, stay at home if you are able to and stay safe and sanitized if you really have to be out. Let’s look out for others, try to be kinder to everyone, take good care of yourselves, and like John Mayer said, smile when you can, and laugh when the opportunity comes up 💛 sending you all socially distanced hugs and kisses!! 😘✨
