What I'm up to at the moment...
This afternoon’s thrift store haul included a leopard print Members Only inspired jacket, Evel Knieval bio and Neiman Marcus tote.
Scored major bargains during an impromptu treasure hunting expedition. I Can Be A Reporter! And an Evel Kneival bio. 🏍 Also this really great animal print jacket. ROAR. ⚡️✨🙌🏻
When I think of everything God has done in my life in the past year, I'm overwhelmed. He has completely transformed me, and I come w an expectant heart to learn what will be revealed this weekend! Thankful for radical grace 🙌🏻#recreate16 #secondchances

I'm having trouble sleeping these days. This morning I was up at 3:30 starting to go through boxes in preparation for a carpet installation. I opened up a box and found this, which is a book written by my late great uncle, who was a professional writer too. The note is from my grandmother, who had the most beautiful handwriting. It's about a Canadian shrine that just happens to be having its 90th anniversary this year. I love finding little time capsules from my ancestors, like my grandmother, who find me even now (13 yrs after her death) and reminds me who I am. ✨📓🌅

The fish oil army is matching and silently judging you for that cookie. Also called: still life at office kitchen table.
Today is a joyful day because this arrived. It's the story of a micro-premie born at 23-weeks. Written by two of the best writers of our time, they are also that baby's parents. Buy it and read it. Trust me. #books #nonfiction
Kind of every part of my body hurt but I lay down at the picnic bench at my son's baseball practice and was all "Hey God, thanks for this day and for perfect light." Here we are. This is it. It is good. #lifeunedited
Our parish picnic today is a celebration of where all our parishioners are from. It is a lovely slice of goodness on a solemn day. Also: there's a priest playing a Mexican folk song on the accordion under an Auburn tent. If that's not America, I don't know what is. 🇱🇷
Finally tried Blue Pacific Thai at Hoover Food Mart on Lorna Road and it really is all that. Lovely dumplings, delicious spicy basil chicken. Also it's right by my salon, so I am both restored to my blondeness and well-fed. 🙌🏻 #inbirmingham #saturday
Sick child day two and the handoff shuffle, "Love Warrior" words in my head from reading last night, making the doughnuts and the deadlines. Awake? You bet. #lifeunedited
This summer was a bummer. We had a lot of death, couple of medical scares, and some real challenges. But it's also been a summer of miracles and healing, and today we're celebrating my husband's 50th birthday, starting with eating chocolate cake for breakfast and now pool time, a stand in till we head to @thestandard Miami for a proper celebration. For now I have my not so retro-modern reads, am resting and also writing like a MF. Ready to bring in a new season. ✨🌞#lifeunedited
