On Sunday's we wear blue 💙
We also fail at taking pictures together.
My niece has been asking me to teach her how to take pictures. Today was her first lesson. I have my own personal photographer y'all. #bestauntever
Doing school shopping and my niece comes to me and says "Tita, I'm buying this hat for you with my own money". It says "Cute, but psycho". Mmmmmk, thanks fam.
Holy throwback! (Lol) Any other MTIers remember how stressful this project was? 😅

We're working to help 17 kids found in #Mosul without their parents. The stories from these and others are horrifying.
One young mother in captivity was hungry. #ISIS fed her. When she admitted the meal was filling, they told her they had killed and cooked her baby and fed him to her. How can she ever eat another meal again?
One girl tells of her 10 year old sister raped to death by #ISIS fighters. Perhaps death is the most merciful escape. I cannot imagine the trauma and horror for those who still live with their nightmare.
Some of these 17 kids' parents are apparently dead, some we have the joy of seeing reunited with other family members, at least. All of them need our help.
I'm telling you, DO NOT GIVE UP on these friends. They are resilient. They never quit believing in the goodness of God, the strength of their families, and the future of their country. Their ability to put one foot in front of the other and keep going, is inspiring. Some of us give up far too soon.
They remind us who we are and who we can be.
Thank you for continuing to show up for them. As you contemplate and celebrate the birthday of America and Canada, please keep these friends here in Mosul and in Raqqa, Syria in your mind. Many of them are celebrating freedom today, as well. But far too many are still trapped, starving, and in desperate need of our ongoing friendship and help.

#GirlsNightOut to see @lisabevere with my favorite! It's way past our bedtime but SO worth it! 💚 Alondra adds; SHES AMAZING!
I love this man so much it doesn't make sense. So naturally I bought us matching Merica shirts and snagged this quick (awful) selfie with my hero on his birthday! Happy birthday Papiringo! 🇺🇸 #dirty30 #mexicanblanket #merica
Been off the grid for the last 11(?) days. I'm sunburnt, exhausted, so behind on everything but so grateful for the opportunity and for my AMAZING crew. #InSquadWeTrust #Bonnaroo2017
