That is actually supposed to say “round-up” but I couldn’t resist the alliteration and the mental picture of a four year old cowboy yelling it across the prairie.

[I love the West. I’m in bad need of a trip to the Oregon Trail and the cowboy territories of the USA.]

I don’t have a ton of time today [lots to do on the ranch…. I’m gonna ride this Western theme out today], but I’ve got some great linky-poos to share with you, so let’s go!

LOOM DECOR— one of my dearest friends just launched an amazing chic design-your-own décor shopping experience. According to Nichole [my friend], “We enable customers to get a designer look, all on their own by giving them access to designer fabrics and custom products, allow people to ‘try on’ their choices with our virtual tool, and get advice and inspiration from Loom.” And they make all the products here in Nashville and ship them to you! [Local stuff, y’all. Local stuff.]

Pretty much, it’s the most fun decor website in the world. You mix and match fabrics until you are drooling over your new bedroom designs, and then you click “ORDER” and they are yours!

You have to have a password to get in, and lucky for you, I know somebody who knows somebody who makes up passwords. So use LOVELOOM and you’ll be in lickity-split.

Also, when you watch this video, look for a secret code to get a discount while you are shopping. 🙂

SheSeeks article – I wrote an article this week for my friends over at SheSeeks about how to speak kindly to yourself. It’s more important that you realize.

Olive & Jane Millinery – Speaking of cool new companies, sheesh. The hats these girls at Olive & Jane are making blow my mind. [Accidental head pun? You betcha.] They are beautiful and reasonably priced for the handiwork. If you are a hat-wearin’ kind of cowgirl [stretching it…], then you should check them out. Even if you aren’t, you won’t be able to resist perusing.

True Love Lies – Wes Howard, the pastor of Cross Point Downtown, did an amazing talk last week about true love vs. real love vs. perfect love. Confused? Then watch the sermon. You’ll get it. It is so so good.

. . . . .

Mocha Club – welp. This happened yesterday. And I’m SUPER excited about it. [Obviously I’m not a musician. But Mocha Club also partners with author/speakers. Don’t worry, I’m keeping my singing voice to myself.] It’s the beginning of a lot of exciting things I get to tell you soon. I would LOVE for you to join me, for just $7 a month, and help bring Education to people in Africa. If you join my team, you get a free copy of my book, too! Read more on the Education projects and see what an amazing difference just $7 a month can make.

Off the feed to cattle and slop the pigs and chew on a piece of hay.

[Reality: off to a staff meeting and then finishing some writing work and then eating lunch with a friend. The truth is so boring and un-cowboyish.]

Your turn! Any cool new links to share?
