Thank you to everyone who has shared and supported this effort!! I continue to be in awe of those who support us, as many times I don’t feel worthy or deserving. So, truly and deeply, I offer oceans of gratitude.
I have updated the fundraiser regarding what is to follow once not that we have returned to Reno …. Much love to all of you!

From yesterday … Just had to share all of them. The expressions. 😜😂💛💛💛
Such a good time. Just hanging out, playing UNO, and taking silly photos …. and eating some amazing food!! And seeing Samantha, my niece (the one standing beside Thomas), one more time before she heads back to Louisiana on Wednesday.
Check out my dinner plate! I was in food heaven! Grilled asparagus, yellow squash, and pineapple along with colorful potatoes, sweet corn on the cob, and a vegan pasta salad. Nom, nom!!! With s’mores for dessert!!! 😋😋😋

For the last few years I’ve given a note and a small gift to Thomas and Lillian on Mothers Day. Doing this just speaks to me. I do love receiving the beautiful hand made gifts they make too. And do enjoy the day of specific gratitude for moms. They have been looking at these soaps for months now so I got them each a bar. xoxo

A wonderful story Lillian wrote in honor of National Donut Day earlier this month …
One day, a donut named Liana was walking toward a building called Friendship Inc. and wondered if someone in this building would be her friend. Little did she know, a watermelon named Summer was running toward the Friendship Inc. building and wondering the same thing.
When Liana and Summer reached the …..

It was a BBQ at The Romano Duo’s place yesterday. I got to see my niece, Samantha, who I haven’t seen since she was 1 year old. And Thomas and Lillian got to meet her for the first time. Thomas and Samantha are about 9 months apart. She’s up from Louisiana visiting her dad, my brother, Robert.
Look at the amazing veggie and pineapple kabobs Frank made just for me. Yum! Yum!! 💗😋
We were graced with a beautiful and bright rainbow too!!! 💞💜

I got a text today that began, Hey Aunt Camilla …. what? I had to go back and reread that. I’ve never been called that. And. For some reason, my throat seized, my nose got runny, my eyes began to burn, and liquid dripped from my eyes.
The last time I saw Samantha, my brothers daughter, she was 1 year old. She’s up from Louisiana visiting him for a few weeks. And. She just called me Aunt Camilla. ♥️💜♥️

Pool and BBQ day at the lodge = Team TLC + The Romano Duo + Robert and Samantha 💦💦💦💙💙💙
It was so good to see this one let loose and just play – the one with the green pool noodle. Caused my heart to jump for joy. And good to see Samantha getting to have fun too!!
I needed this day. A day to not worry about things …. money, health and well being of myself and my two kiddos, food, shelter, peace. A day to say, just for today everything is okay. Right now, in this moment, I shall not worry. Thank you for this day. 🙏🏼♥️♥️♥️🙏🏼
