Jay’s Questions

  • What would you like bloggers to do more of that they aren’t doing right now?  I tend to follow blogs that are positive and uplifting.  There is so much negative in the world… I believe there is always a positive to any negative situation.   I love when I discover a blogger turning a difficult life circumstance into something others can GROW from.

1) I am a twin 2) I gave birth to twins 3) I have twin cousins 4) I have triplet aunts
