How am I only just now discovering these?? Nashville never ceases to surprise me...
// Christmas reflections //
// everything is a facade //
This moment — seeing my dear friend @sheakiddhouze receive her PhD — is bursting at the seams with pride and joy and admiration.
What you have accomplished, my Shineanea, and the wonder of the woman you are, inspires me beyond words. I hear your sixteen-year-old self singing in the bush of Botswana... "If you wanna be somebody, if you wanna go somewhere, you better wake up and pay attention." You, my friend, have shown me the enormity of what that can mean. I want to be just like you when I grow up.
Walking with my feet ten feet off of Beale...
Gatorade shots to celebrate @adambuzard crossing the chemo finish line — complete with tears, joy, and Eye of the Tiger blasting on the speakers! (Thankful for the gift of doing life—the good, the bad, the ugly—all of it—with these friends.)
What are you listening to right now?
If you say so, Nashville...
Discovered a slice of the PNW here on the east side... The female-owned @scoutsbarbershop is beautiful, creative, and cozy — they've made a loyal fan out of me with a single visit.
I never got tired of seeing these guys in my backyard... #tbt
It's coming on Christmas
And they're cutting down trees
Putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on
Some days, a mug is all it takes to bring me right back to Africa...
"Of all the Charlie Browns in the world, you're the Charlie Browniest."
