A Hotty Toddy Reunion in Amsterdam

I broke my promise. Sorry, y’all. I really mean to update sooner. HOWEVER, I have stories to make up for it. The last month has been extremely exciting in terms of friends and adventures. If you know what a global ambassador is, I was one at Ole Miss until I came to Edinburgh for my…
