No one loves live music more than Jimmy!!!
Isa modeling a one of a kind outfit I made for her!
Here she's pretending to smell her armpit and she thinks she's so funny. I think it looks like a great picture especially if you didn't know her intentions!!! but I try to be honest. ;)
Rosie and I were in the city so we stopped by to see Caroline.
