Objects in mirror are closer than they appear.
Sometimes I quite enjoy being a hometown tourist.
L.M. Montgomery nailed it. "I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."
It's fall, y'all!
Life is tough, my darling, but so are you.

Also. I think I've found my spot. @theterminalcafe won me over with its fabulous food, perfect latte, welcoming hospitality, and wanderlusty airport theme.

Let's get real. Let's make friends with our imperfections, because they're the side effects of being human, and there's medicine in "me, too!" Let's laugh at ourselves: it sure beats the hell out of the alternative. Let's agree that normal isn't a thing, and unlovable isn't either. Let's not be dicks. There are already enough dicks. Let's reframe our mistakes as lessons, and start kicking ass at learning. And let's use honesty and humor and heart to leave this place a little better than we found it.

It's time for our laws to catch up with the culture of our city. It's time that our governing bodies actively support what we believe about Nashville: that we value personal freedom and expression, we encourage innovative thinking and creative ventures, and we are a community that supports our own.
That's how I ended my testimony before the Senate committee this morning, advocating for better #Airbnb laws in #Nashville.
I'm a huge advocate for this sharing economy of ours, and I'm thankful to be able to add my voice to the governmental conversation around this vital issue.
To be human is to be broken, and broken is its own kind of beautiful.
