Happy Friday, friends!
On Wednesday night, Chris surprised me with a trip to the beach for my 30th. This morning, we're en route to Rosemary Beach, which is where my family has gone on vacation for years. I'm so excited to show him around our favorite little coffee shops, running routes and, oh, that glorious, glorious Emerald Coast.
I've been writing a lot more lately and, as I've done it, I've noticed my creative pores widening. This means more output, which is good. However, it also means the things I'm taking in have an ability to infiltrate with greater ease and stick inside my head a little more. I'm realizing I have to be intentional about what I read, understanding that my spongey brain is craving examples, ideas and mentors.
With that, I wanted to share some of the exceptional, yoga-for-your-brain-and-soul type things I've been taking in.
The Power of Vulnerability by Brené Brown (your first Audible is free! But, also, worth ev.er.y penny)

Dear Sugar Radio by Cheryl Strayed and Steve Almond
Allison Fallon's blog
Present Over Perfect by Shauna Niequist (Confession: I actually have not started it yet. But I am 100% comfortable recommending it anyway. I believe in Shauna :))
Little Things & Curiosities by Laura Marie Meyers (she just had a baby so the updates aren't as frequent, but, if you haven't discovered her blog, enjoy years of beautiful writing!)
What else should I be reading or listening to? Have a wonderful summerfall weekend!
