This Dance

You know something is powerful when it comes back to you months…years later. Books, music, dance do that for me. They affect me profoundly, they find a home in my heart and there will be moments when I’m not thinking, early in the morning when I just awaken and these images will flood my mind and I’m affected all over again by the message they send. This is one dance that found me this week, lying in bed and not thinking. It is profound and shattering for anyone who has struggled with addiction, who has fought the fight or fought beside a friend or loved one. It’s eye opening for everyone else who needs to feel what it’s like to be addicted so they can choose to look around with open eyes to see those who are struggling to find a...

Me and My Broken Heart

This one, from Rising Star – it’s long winded with the commentary but I LOVE this girl and how she comes out and nails it! Me and My Broken Heart by Macy Kate. Check it...

Turnin’ it Back

I’m on a steady diet of music – sipping them like strawberry lemonade on the porch when the sun is going down. I adore Automatic by the fabulous Miranda Lambert. Here are just a few of my favorite retro things – before everything became automatic: My Grandpa’s old yellow Chevy truck with huge mirrors, ignition on the dash and a bucket seat that stretched across the cab. Dusty old journals – tell me your heart doesn’t race with excitement to get to peak into someone’s personal notes about their lives. Vintage material – the colors and textures remind me of when Mom used to sew our dresses. White hobnail glass anything – you know, stuff like this:   What’s your favorite polaroid...

Book Stand {Events}

Friday and Saturday morning, June 20-21 from 8-11am, I’ll be running a Book and Soda Stand on a busy street in my hometown.  The idea takes me back to those little fruit stands on the side of the road, selling sweet ripe cantaloupes and strawberries as big as your head and bursting with flavor. Or those little stands with cute dirty-faced kids selling lemonade that they drink as fast as they sell. There is something entirely down-home about selling from a table in the neighborhood. Something basically good about reaching out to the people who drive down your street each day. Something perfectly special about handing a book to a Mom rushing to soccer practice with her car full of kiddos, a little promise between you and her that while she’s cheering on...

Music to My Ears

This is what I’ve been listening to…turning it up too loud while driving carpool, listening to it on repeat whenever I get the chance, and generally obsessing. I can quit whenever I want…   Another thing I’m obsessing about – sharing this! A HEART SO BROKEN is the perfect summer read full of romance, fist fights, basketball showdowns and a little bit more romance. Take it from me, you need a copy of this beauty to keep you up on a warm summer...
