Those of you posting up an image of Morgan Freeman with the caption “RIP Nelson Mandela” need to get your head re-examined! In all seriousness, however, his excellency Nelson Mandela epitomized forgiveness, strength, and resilience in a transcending and transformative way. We as human beings are better for his legacy. Let’s hope we can continue it. Rest in Paradise Madiba.
Extremely grateful for another Mi Casa Holiday experience in Playa Del Carmen and Tulum Mexico. All events were top notch, including the United Music party at Club Liv, where yours truly closed it out to a late-dancing crowd until the early morning! Shouts to my MCH fam for an unforgettable night and week!
Season 3 of Souleil was one for the books as every Sunday found le Souleil shining bright with music, love, and amazing people. As a farewell until next season, it’s only fitting I share this magic with you.
