A confession about a confession.

Here is my confession. I wrote an article for (in)courage about my girlfriends in Nashville. And I didn’t tell them. Or ask their permission. I just did it. Oops. You can read it here- A Community Confession. But don’t tell the girls. First I’ve got to figure out my apology for posting their picture on

Twirling… into the weekend.

I have literally never said this before and I’m afraid I will never say it again. But this article, Turning, is probably my favorite thing I’ve had the pleasure of writing. I’m so so proud that I get to post it at (in)courage– it’s like my beach house for writing, so I go there as

These are a few of my favorite things.

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

What a fancy Friday.

I have two friends who call me “Fancy” and I don’t know if it is more an homage to my love for Reba or because I am, in fact, very fancy. But either way, it is deeply endearing. [I tell you the weirdest things. I can’t help it. Sorry.] There are three seriously awesome things

Internet Nerd.

I’m not sure of the level of inappropriate, but it is probably somewhere above my average don’t-write-that level. “Internet nerd” is a good enough title I guess, but it lacks zing. Sorry.

I have so many things to tell you about. Just things. That are great. And I’m a big believer in sharing. So let’s do it. EASY CLICK OF THE WEEK: My sweet friend Natalie has made it to the Top 10 to win a worldwide travel internship. Would you take literally two seconds to vote

A bad case of the [thankful] Mondays.

It was that kind of weekend. The kind of weekend that you put up on a shelf and stare at for a little bit, and then say to yourself, “that was a keeper.” I told you last week that one of my Nash-BFFs Betsy was in town. She moved away after Christmas and was here

Grace. Etc.

First of all, you people love you some instructional videos. I feel like linen closets near and far are being transformed. Brings a tear to my organizational eye to hear so many of you making strides in folding areas of your life. I salute you, new members of the fold. [Literally.] I’m so stinkin’ glad
