Yesterday I kicked off my 20 year celebration for glamjulz!

I chose the day because, as of yesterday, we only have 20 days left in 2020 and also, December 12th was my Dad’s birthday. Gosh, he would have been 85.  He and he had such a tremendous influence on my character, always encouraging me to work hard and give it my all!

So with all of those good vibes for a start date, I know that (more…)
