Hello world, and HAPPY FRIDAY!

This is a really exciting day for me. Why? It’s because I A. survived this week, B. am headed to Miss Tennessee workshop, and C. made it to SPRING BREAK! I cannot wait to get in some much-needed R&R this next week. If you get a spring break, I hope you’ll do the same. If you don’t, treat yourself to a nap or a nice long walk today. You’re gonna need it.

Here’s what’s going on in my world this week!

One. I did a thing and put my political opinions out there. A Short Commentary on Politics in America. Read it, don’t read it, whatever suits your fancy.

Two. This week was Read Across America week, and I had the privilege of reading to classrooms all around Nashville. It was such a neat experience to be able to share the joy of a book with so many sweet children and to have the opportunity to thank Nashville educators for all that they’re doing to make a difference!

Three. Quote from Dr. Turner’s interview from this week’s Power of One Wednesday that is still resonating with me: “God will use ordinary people to do extraordinary things.” How are you positioning yourself to be used by God to do great things today?

Four. When I dream, it’s of the hundred layer doughnuts at Five Daughters Bakery. Can we just…?

Five. I’m going to be out an entire week from writing, posting, social media-ing, whatever. It’s making my juggle-six-balls-at-once-brain a little anxious. But listen: we’re all only human. Sometimes it’s okay to do absolutely nothing and not feel the slightest bit guilty about it. I hope you’ll take some of that time for yourself this upcoming week, whether you’re a frazzled college student, one of my friend’s moms, or just someone who took a break from work to take the time and read this. Read: you have permission to breathe. To be human.

In other news, the new season of House of Cards comes out today. What a better way to celebrate your humanity than a good Netflix binge?? With the way things are going in politics these days, I may end up casting my vote for Underwood after all.


And…we’re out of here! On to Jackson! Happy March y’all!
