Good morning everyone. A special shout out to my amazing husband David who woke up early today to snow-blow our entire block. It's important to be a good neighbor. His final touches with the shovel. Stay safe inside if you can and be especially careful if you have to go out.💗

Today is my older brother Carlos' @mendozazz (on the left) 50th birthday! Happy Birthday, bro! Wowzers! We're getting old. I love this pic. It captures his fun and funny personality. Plus, it's a hilarious old school family photo. I hope his 50th is as fun and cool as he is, within Covid-19 safety recommendations of course. Love you, bro!

Merry Christmas!!! After 41 days in the hospital battling for his life after contracting Covid-19, my brother Joaquin has finally been discharged from the hospital and sent to rehab to start his road to recovery. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, to everyone who prayed for his recovery and sent my family words of support and encouragement. And a gigantic THANK YOU to all the wonderful doctors and amazing nurses at Northwestern Memorial Hospital who literally saved his life. We are forever grateful and in awe of you. To everyone who sent a get well card, I was able to personally deliver them to him today, the first day I've gotten to see my brother since the lockdown in March. He is so appreciative of the cards, prayers and well wishes. I can't imagine a better Christmas gift and blessing than getting to see my brother after so long and to see him on the mend. And to have that happen today, on Christmas day, is a Christmas miracle in my book. Thank you. God bless you all. And Merry Christmas!💗🙏🏼🎄☃️🎅
