Time Fades Memories.


Time fades memories.

I grasp my pictures of you.

Don’t take them away.

Happy Offices!


Sometimes it’s hard to work at an office so that’s why we have our happy offices. I get pumped up with good energy at coffee shops. Gotta do anything that helps us to keep moving forward. Have a great Saturday!

You Paint My Blues Pink


You paint my blues pink.

And shelter me from my pain.
