Born To Be Donna

After having Summerlandish: Do As I Say, Not As I Did published, I started receiving amazing messages from strangers saying how much they love my mom, Donna. Without even knowing her in real life, people feel this connection and admiration for her. Perhaps it’s her care free outlook on life. Maybe it’s her fashion choices from the early 90s… Either way – she’s a legend and I’m glad that the world recognizes that.

It’s hard living so far away for her, but lucky for me – SHE’S JUST LANDED IN AUSTRALIA FOR THE BIRTH OF HER SECOND GRANDCHILD.

To celebrate her arrival, I thought I’d put together the Top 10 Donna moments I’ve gathered from online and my phone. (You’re welcome.)


#10 – The time that Donna knew how to wear a white visor and (what looks like) medical glasses while chillin on a boat like a bosslady.



#9 – The time that Donna knew what Facebook should be used for.

#3 – The time that Donna rocked these loafers while cruising around the world.



#2 – The time that the ground ate Donna and it was hilarious.



#1 – The time that Donna offered the most important advice in my book.
