I’ve spent over 30 years with this dude along my side and he happens to be blood. Day 15 is for my man we like to affectionately call “JoJo”. There is no one like him and he puts his heart into everything he does without questioning whether is going to be successful or not. He is always up for a good debate and I could spend hours talking to him about The @nationals We love to share “hidden treasure” songs or artist that aren’t in the mainstream and jam out in whenever we are in the car. We trust each other and I have spent many nights talking about the challenges that life throws at you with this man. I like to give him a hard time and my all-time favorite moment was when we were messing around at McLean High and he tossed a pitch 10 ft over Jimmy’s head after claiming to be a “legit” pitcher. Another favorite memory is when I got to share the arena football field with him, unexpectedly. I scored and he was the first to celebrate with me which I will never forget ( #3 in the video). JoJo is as solid as they come and I love you brother man!! #30DaysOfFamily #JoJo #Brother #Blood #CountryDancer #NatsFan
#1) Hey! For the past few months, I’ve been writing a new book called Hallelujah!
It’ll be available through Amazon on Halloween! (Ebook and paperback)
Since Hallelujah is primarily directed for 12-18 year olds...and such a different style than my adult writing under the pseudonym, Alexander Mercer, I decided to write it under Alex’s wife’s name: Ana. Haha!
Im now working on volume two of The Prestige Collection - called Limbo: A Stroll through Uncanny Valley.
Hallelujah! is the first of four books (two under Ana, two under Alex) that’ll be released with Limbo, including my new album “Finding HoME (which will be released on November 24th). #2) MILESTONE MOMENT! Hahaha I finally reached 1,000 monthly listeners on Spotify! Thank you! I really believe this is my season of growth and open doors! :) #3) Wanna listen to a really great song My new single “Pineapple / Make Believe” came out on August 23rd...and it’s become my fastest growing song...hahah I know my numbers maybe little compared to the big ballers but I feel legit so blessed. Pineapple has a pretty large sample of “Berlin II” by @jnthnstein...which makes me want to cry every time I think about it...I bumped that song for years and when he said I could use it...I started believing in miracles... Also, I gotta shoutout one of the greatest producers alive that made the track, and took my crappy voice memos and made it into a legit song.. @johnallenstephens you’re so talented and your gifts are gonna hella bless you in this next stage of your life. :) thank you to @mrsawesomeface for really taking the spotlight on every song you’re put on. Your voice is such a joy to hear and light in this world. And, Idk Stu’s insta but holy crap has he been phenomenal in the studio!!! Thank you to @amandareneeadams and Shaye ( haha also don’t know his Insta) for your incredible job on Pineapple.
Ah! The best days are ahead of us!! :))) Also, @kcrummett masters everyone of my songs and he legit blows me away every single time!
Haha, okay...I’m done.... Grace and Love!

#3 as you can see I would've post this, but decided not too
I finally realized why I always come back to this trail in times of feeling all the feels - - • the hardest part is the beginning // and it SUCKS & you feel like it won’t ever end • when you get past the push, you’re surrounded by so many textures and challenges , but your brain is just glad you are past the damn hill that was behind you ( #2- & an attempt at a handstand for @jessehaan8 #rocket #errday)
• when you’re tired and have had enough, you turn around & the best part is the end // the view, hearing your breathe from exertion, and those views ( #3)
This reminded me of life - - • usually, the hardest part is starting or deciding or committing to that thought or practice • it’s still a struggle throughout but you embrace, you look around and enjoy it, feel it • if you feel like you aren’t enough, not strong enough or able enough, turn around. You’ve done so much, and I promise you that what you’ve done is something you need to APPRECIATE!
So take a deep breathe🌬, look back at that view and all you’ve accomplished, recognize it, and keep it up. You’ve got it. + one of my fave pics taken on this trail ft. some JCREW models for the Fall Catalog ( #4)
