Take Two Challenge

Two songs, that is. It’s time to hit pause on whatever it is you’ve got to do this weekend and press play. I’m challenging you to pick two of your all-time favorite songs and rock out as hard as you can! These songs have to be two things: fun and loud! Music has such a profound effect on us. Happy …

Let’s Stop Telling Borrowed Stories

The other day, I was grabbing a tea to go when I couldn’t help but overhear a conversation between two girls in line behind me. One friend said to the other, “Oh, how is Jen?

High Five Challenge
