It is absolutely flat out gorgeous this morning in Nashville. The temperatures are in the 50s, teasing me with the notion of tossing on a sweater and pulling on my black boots, but it’s going to be a scorcher later this afternoon and just in time for Miss C’s soccer game, unfortunately. Mama’s not packing away the flip flops!
A woman named Kim MacGregor, mom to three girls, sent me this flash mob video which is in essence her amazing love letter in dance and movement and song to her dear friend Erika who passed away last year from colon cancer at the very young age of 31. You can read the entire back store here at I Believe She’s Amazing. Erika was the national spokesperson for the Look Good Feel Better non-profit organization that helps women undergoing cancer treatment to feel radiant and beautiful, even through a difficult time in their lives.
I hope this video makes you smile!

I love this post from The Painted House called A Ranch Original. She interviews her 90-year-old neighbor and posts some amazing photos from her neighbors 1950s ranch. We live in a subdivision that was built in the late 1960s and I can only imagine if the walls could talk, what stories they would tell.

My dear friend Amy Allen Clark just celebrated 7 years of blogging. Ya’ll in blog years that makes her Betty White or something and trust me, she is just as fabulous. She has a great post about how she stuck it out and became very successful at it so it’s a wonderful read for anyone who is interested in long-term blogging success.

What are you up to today? We have soccer photos and a game and my youngest, Miss A, has her very first kindergarten classmate soiree at one of those bouncy house on crack places. Good times in sock feet.
Have a great weekend!
