I went to west palm beach to talk greatness, legacy, and recovery with @serenawilliams for @allure. This is my third cover story, and a bit of a dream come true. The link is where it always is. 📸: @tanyaposternak & @zposternak

Today is my goddaughter’s 14th birthday. She and her mother were bridesmaids in my wedding last year, and one of the best parts of the process was getting to spend more time with this brilliant, hilarious, and beautiful young lady. Aubrey, your mother & I met when we were 14. I was at the hospital hours after you were born. I got there as fast as I could. I couldn’t wait to meet you. And getting to know you has been one of the greatest pleasures of my life. Thanks for being my first god-kid, and for not being born on *my* birthday. Love you so much. Happy happy birthday! 📸: @honeyandsaltphoto

Today I graduated from @ballstateuniversity, gave the commencement speech, and didn’t even pass out from nerves! Victory! No more homework!
