It's my cute little babe's 19th birthday today, and she surprised ME by coming home from school last night! That's Ash. Thoughtful, loving, spontaneous. Being her mom is an absolute joy, and I'm so excited to celebrate her today!
I've had a hard time posting pretty pictures the last few days. Somehow, it seems wrong when so many people are suffering. I have been glued to social media and the news watching the story unfold. My heart aches seeing so many of my friends and fellow Texans lose everything. The terror they must feel... I've felt helpless. I've felt guilty sitting in my dry living room drinking hot coffee. I've cried and watched certain videos over and over. Through the devastation, though, my faith in humanity has been restored. Seeing neighbors helping neighbors, strangers coming from other states to help with the rescues, millions of dollars being donated, singing praise songs in shelters... It has been so beautiful to watch. So, I will continue to pray, to hope, to volunteer where I can and to love on my fellow man. We're all in this together. #texasstrong

I'm praying for my fellow Texans and friends that have been impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Watching social media has been heartbreaking this morning. Sending love and good vibes. ❤️ #prayersfortexas
I've been home for too long. My wanderlust is at an all time high! Thank goodness I leave for Big Sur in two weeks!! This will be a busy Fall for traveling, and I'm not mad about it. Anyone else have the insatiable need to explore and wander??
She was beautiful, for the way she thought. She was beautiful, for the sparkle in her eyes when she talked about something she loved. She was beautiful, for her ability to make other people smile, even if she was sad. No, she wasn't beautiful for something as temporary as her looks. She was beautiful, deep down to her soul. She is beautiful.” F. Scott Fitzgerald
It's Friday, and I'm having a little editing dance party over here! Cheers to the weekend!
