I believe the secret to finding happiness is reflection and gratitude. Although I’m still figuring things out, I wouldn’t wish to be anyone else but Taylor. I can’t deny the fact that I’m truly blessed and I wouldn’t be the person that I am today if it wasn’t for my favorite person in the world, Mama.

To express how thankful I am, here are 33 Notes to My Favorite Lady:

  3. Thank you for sharing your middle name with me, Michelle.
  4. Thank you for nipping my crybaby ways in the bud when I was younger.
