Can’t Stop The Feeling

4 years ago today, a very special little lady entered the world. We are so lucky that God found us you Grace.

Please don’t ever lose your big smile, huge heart and love for life. May this year be the best yet! We love you Gracie O and hope you have the most wonderful birthday!
