At the end of February, my husband and our dog (Daisy), will be moving from the New Jersey for Indio, Cali. Woot Woot! We are SUPER excited! If you have already, please follow me on Instagram. I will be posting pics, and videos of are adventure across the US. XOXO! Follow me: https://www.instagram.com/happykinksforever/
