Wearing // purple polish on my ring finger, in support of #PutTheNailInIt to bring awareness to domestic violence. Whether you have been directly affected by domestic violence or not, it IS something that should matter to you. 1 in 4 women will be a victim of domestic violence in their lifetime. ONE IN FOUR. 1 in 7 women will be stalked by an intimate partner during their lifetime to the point in which they feel very fearful or believed that they would be harmed or killed. Can I tell you guys something? I am one of those seven. But just because that time in my life has since passed (thank you, Jesus), it still continues for many others. We can’t just look the other way. We can’t NOT talk about it. I painted my nail over the weekend and have already had multiple people ask me what it was all about. Yes, let’s donate where we can but more so LET’S TALK ABOUT IT. You can find out more info & donate at putthenailinit.com
Laughing at // the latest vlog I did with Christian. It was such a spontaneous thing, to bring him on, but we had so much fun that I think we’re going to turn this into a reoccurring thing 😉 (By the way, I CAN finally taste the cotton candy in the grapes. It’s a crazy, crazy thing and I’m loving Rebecca’s idea of turning it into cotton candy wine.)
If you are interested in learning about Sarah’s journey, Life is Beautiful is now available to purchase on Amazon.
Writing // my novel. YES. I am finally back to it and it feels completely terrifying and SO great, all at the same time. It meant saying goodbye to some things I really, really enjoyed but sometimes you have to carve out time for your dreams. There are so many fun things to be a part of in this life but the truth is- we simply don’t have time to do them all, at least not at the same time. While I was sad to leave some of those other things, I’m excited knowing I’m putting more of my energy into one of my biggest dreams.
Encouraged by // All of these things 🙂
