Remember Us with Smiles is about the magic of love and family, and it’s a reminder to stay connected to what really matters—each other! This beautiful book made me smile, tear up, and feel happy to visit my own memories. I look forward to reading this book over and over again with my kids. I can’t recommend it more strongly for all families to read together!”

—Kimberly Snyder, New York Times best-selling author of You Are More Than You Think You Are
