Runnin’ Down a Dream. My belated Tom Petty tribute. When I visited California in 2003, the valley was Los Angeles to me (I mean, it actually is part of the city). Listening to Tom Petty and driving around Mulholland, Topanga, Ventura and Reseda made the California dream seem like a real possibility. And two years later, it was. This picture is actually from the 2003 visit and so breaking the iPhone only policy 😜
THX 4 THE MEMORIES//
Happy 23rd birthday to the queen & my best friend, @ally_babaa ! 👑✨ When reflecting on our last 22 years of friendship, it is so clear to me that God has put you in my life. Thank you for walking alongside me through every season. I am so proud of the woman you have become and know there is so much more ahead for both of us. Now let's make some memories!✨Cheers. 🥂

do you ever feel so content with life? positive affirmations. self-care afternoons. journaling your days. listening to the music that makes you happy. clearing your mind with doing things you love. read more to stay refreshed. i suggest you do so, it worked wonders for me. 💫

Knowing this young man and watching him grow for the last year to be 16, through all of the things he has to see and live with, and now, seeing the outpouring of support for him.. I just want to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone 🙏🏼
Especially Coach @alexkarimzad , and Coach Alex @turndown4wahl , for mentoring him, giving countless rides and believing in a crazy idea that anyone can train Jiu Jitsu and anyone can grow to have Jiu Jitsu as a career, and that absolutely anything is possible!

Thank you everyone who helped us with your support in our efforts to help Khayri, to be able to train Jiu Jitsu everyday! We bought him a skateboard and metro passes, Uber gift cards, got him carpool access, and he is now at the academy almost 7 days a week, training, assisting with kids classes and on his way to achieving his dreams. All of you are amazing!! Thank you for the support!!
