I just have to make a list.

You know how I feel about lists.

— I just finished reading the third book in Mary DeMuth’s Defiance Texas Triology. It’s called Life in Defiance and I am telling y’all, this has been one of the most enjoyable series I have read in a while. I highly HIGHLY recommend it.

— I’m rather fiction spoiled right now. I also just read Hurricanes in Paradise by my friend Denise Hildreth. I’ve always loved her stuff, and this new book did not disappoint. I laughed, I teared up, I wanted to go to the beach. Amen.

— I’m writing today over at (in)courage about this picture. Check it out, yo.

And yes, I did take this picture at Frothy Monkey. Of course. Because I love Frothy. In fact, I’m headed there in approximately 9 minutes. Then I’m going to the YMCA. Even though I walked out of a sculpt class yesterday- the teacher was mean, so I peaced out.

Tangent complete.

— Donald Miller directed me to this blog a few months and now I’m addicted. Kelle Hampton takes beautiful pictures; her art is her photos and her words. You need to read the post about her daughter Nella Cordelia. That will be enough to make you want more.

— The other blog I’m a newish fan of is Natalie Lloyd. I’ve known Natalie for a long time via Susie Magazine, but I just recently began reading her blog and there is a real chance that we share some parts of our brains. I don’t know the science behind it, I just know that sometime we think the same things. So if you like me a little bit, I bet you’ll like her more.

And for today, I think that is enough.

Happy Friday.

Booyah.
