Holiday weekend, y'all!

Here's a few things:

1. I plan on wearing my white skinnies after Labor Day and I don't really care whether or not it's kosher, because it's still one million degrees here and I do as I please.

2. This won't be a social media free weekend, it will just be a social media LESS weekend.  I'll still post my #29nicethings updates, and probably a #sundayconfession.  If you don't follow me on Instagram, you should just know that that's where a lot of the action goes down.

3. The giveaway for the mason jar tumblers is open until 8:00 tonight.  You should enter here or here.

4. This weekend/week/ish I am working on the sessions that I'm leading for a parents respite/retreat shebang in Georgia next month.  I'm so excited about it.  I get to share a part of my story that I've never spoken about publicly before, and I get to work through the acronym B.R.A.V.E., which stands for "Beautiful, Real, Amazing, Valuable, Enough."   In case you are having trouble reading between the lines:  I get to talk about beauty.  Not female beauty, or all shapes and sizes beauty, but all-over-the-world-beauty - in creation, in love, in forgiveness, in bravery, in gratitude, and in the faces of children-beauty.

And I get to talk about REAL.  Mercy.  I can't even.

And enough.  And bravery.

It's going to be good.

Happy Labor Day weekend, and happy Friday, folks! Love to you,
