There’s nothing more important to me than my family – whether it’s eating healthy or spending lots of quality time outside, we’re always showing Ethan and Willow ways to take care of our whole health. I’m partnering with @cignatogether to encourage the LGBTQ community to get their annual check-up, because how you feel emotionally can affect you physically and vice versa. #CignaBodyandMind #ad bit.ly/Cigna_BodyandMind
“The LGBTQ community is two and a half times more likely to experience depression, anxiety and substance misuse than the general population which can affect both your body and mind.”

Happy 4 year wedding anniversary my beloved @jasonrlandau. What a ride this life is with you. Since then, we’ve welcomed our magical Willow & Ethan into the world, we’ve said goodbye to our Dads, and we’ve weathered countless life adventures…good, bad, and everything in between. There is no one I’d rather be on this saga with. Onward we go my Jewish Prince.
