Best 9 was all about Loyal! No surprise there. He’s simply the BEST of my life in every way. It was a hella TOUGH year filled with hard lessons and constant change but it also brought the most precious thing is all, my son. Cheers to everyone who is in the thick of their struggle. Stay true to yourself and hold your morals high. Don’t compromise on what you know is right.
