everyday inspiration

No rest for the weary.

I’ve completely failed at blogging lately. Life has gotten in the way, but I’d say that’s a good thing.

I’m jetting off tomorrow for New Orleans for the holiday weekend. Unfortunately, sans husband. I’m headed to Essence Festival as our social media correspondent, so follow @Walmart on Twitter for fun updates and pics! (shameless plug) I’ll be busy, busy, busy at the event, mostly plotting the best way to get behind the scenes and meet Queen Bey. She shops at Walmart, right? She’ll definitely want to talk to me…

Not only am I leaving husband behind, but also my parents who came in town for the week. Talk about timing. Luckily, I’ve gotten some wonderful time with them for a few days, as well as with our family friends from West Memphis.




Before I head off to pack and listen to 90s Pop Pandora, I’ll leave you with a few other life lately updates.

{celebrating // two amazing people getting married}

Happy 4th of July weekend to you and yours! xo xo

P.S. I’m extra excited to share my next set of book reviews for Reconstructing Amelia and Don’t Worry, It Gets Worse. Stay tuned!
