We’ve been having so much fun in the mountains, she forgot she likes the ocean 😜Mexico, te amamos ❤️Peace, love, and gelato.Can you spot the 👶? The sweet man who offered to capture our family skiing together captured more than just a ski run. He captured our spirit. He captured how we cultivate joy. This is us at our best.
