I am Tessa, one of Goldiva Goldens super models. I got to be the cover girl for the 2014 L.L. Bean Christmas gift catalogue, that was fun. I was so small my true mischievous self had not yet awaken. I live on Chebeague island with a super fun family. There is a mom and a dad and twins. The twins are my real gift, I follow them everywhere when they are home, and cry when they leave my sight. The little girl loves to cuddle with me and sometimes puts bows in my hair. I chase the little boy all the time. We love playing nerf wars, he shoots the foam bullets and I try to eat them. He always outsmarts me and ends up getting them back. My favorite thing is all of the wonderful buffet items that we find on the beach, the swimming is great also. I learned to swim when I first moved here. I think I was about 11 weeks old, and haven’t stopped since. I was scared of the waves at first but mom came in with me and all was good. Balls (soccer are my favorite but tennis are GREAT), walks ( I’m really getting great at this), and playing (tormenting) my half sister are some of my other favorite things. I’m just glad I have found a patient family that realizes that I’m still learning and love them all so much. It’s a good life with great things to look forward too. I also love riding the ferry with my family that is piloted by their daddy, Captain Kevin. He’s an accomplished photo and video editor. Kevin does the Maine news spots on Channel 8.
