Just had the wildest idea. Bear with me you guys... Comment a ❤️ if you’re a Miami Vice fan before you continue reading this post. I know the majority of y’all I’ve met at my country music concerts but I’m curious to see how many of you found me from my dad. Now, here’s my fun New Year’s Resolution idea: . Starting January 1st I’m going to start watching Vice (by Vice I mean Miami Vice, which sounds funny to say because I’m so used to calling it Vice lol). Anyway, I’m going to start watching it from the very beginning - legit like it’s September 16, 1984 and we’re cruising down Ocean Drive. I can’t promise to watch an episode a day or anything as I’ve got a lot going on in my life and sometimes it takes me a week to finish one Netflix movie 🤣 But I am genuinely going to try to finish the whole series by the end of 2020. I’m going to try to watch, not as a daughter, but like you guys, like authentic fans. I’ll update y’all every once in a while about what episode I’m on and what I think etc. I’ve seen clips of the show but never watched an entire episode so this will be a genuine first impression. . In conclusion: January 1st — I’m going back to the future to 1984. MIAMI VICE: Season 1, Episode 1: Brother’s Keeper. If you’re a Vice fan feel free to tell all your friends and follow along. 😍 What’s your favorite episode? . (Pls no spoilers btw - although you Vice fans have been so loving and kind that I can’t imagine u ever wanting to spoil anything for anyone.) Photo: #ThrowbackThursday photo of Daddy & I.

So many of us give up all the fun we used to feel when we were little. Like our natural sense of wonder, our confidence in our abilities, our imagination, our laughter and just general play. It’s like we grow up and forget how to live, so we become dependent on others or substances to give us the courage that we left behind. One of these days, when you’re not doing anything in particular, try reengaging your natural sense of wonder and see how it makes you feel. There are so many things I’ve not lost from childhood but one of my favorites is playing dress up. Of course, I’m incredibly lucky to be able to do it for living. What’s one thing you’ve carried over from childhood? . Note: If you can’t remember, try playing with a dog. One of the most beautiful things about dogs is no matter how old they get they never forget how to play. In fact they’re always playing. They’re like little furry angels. They’ll bring you back to yourself if you’ve forgotten. #happygirl #nofilter

How am I going to spend my extra hour? Probably giving longer hugs. Writing more songs on guitar. Telling loved ones “I love you” 100 more times than usual. As long as we’re all awake a little while longer, we might as well spend it treasuring *the little things* a little while longer too. Peace and love y’all ❤️✨ Photo by @SacredThomas #pfg
PHILLIP'S LIFE OUTSIDE THE SERIES
His success on the 1980s series soon made the actor a household name and landed him other major roles in series including "Extra Large," and "We Are Angels."
Later on, the icon wrote the musical, "Sacha And The Magic Cookie Maker," a play which has been reproduced eight times, and now goes by the name, "Sacha On Broadway."
He also ventured into music, with albums like "Living The Book Of My Life," and "Somebody." In addition, the legend goes down in history as the coiner of "EGOT," a term for the four major Hollywood Awards, including Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards, none of which he ever won.
MARRIAGE AND FAMILY
The Golden Globe winner is a fan of large families, with one of his own, which he chose to keep away from the spotlight through their growing phase. He once said of his large family,
"It's not a matter of hiding them. I love them tremendously. But people throw stones at those you love, and in protecting those that I love, I stay silent."
The Hollywood legend has been married once, to model, Kassandra Thomas in 1986. The two share five children, including Imaj, with their oldest being Thomas' first child, Monica. The pair divorced in 1998, after enduring twelve years together.
The 70-year-old is also father to six other children from previous relationships with four different women. Two of Phillip Michael Thomas' children, Melody and India Serene, were born to him by former lover and actress Sheila DeWindt.
The father of eleven definitely kept busy over the years, both on and off the screen, with his family to show for it, and Imaj is proving to be a true legend, just like her gifted father as she continues reaching for the stars.
