Hey, hey, heyyyy...
Some thoughts this lovely Sunday!
First, thank you all SO much for the super sweet comments on my "vlog" (barf). It's sometimes scary posting videos of yourself, because well... y'all are used to me in writing, not live and in your faces!(Okay, so it wasn't LIVE, but you know...) Your comments were so sweet, I just may grace this place with my late night face again ;) (You like that rhymage?)
& While we're talking about this vlog of mine, can we talk about this "accent" you're all speaking of?Seriously? I don't feel like I have an accent. I mean, I say "y'all" instead of "you all", but that's because I feel like "you all" sounds plum silly coming out of my mouth! But country accent? Whhaaa? I mean, Julie? She's kickin' an accent(a seriously cute one too), but me? I don't get it.
So funny :)
Second, I had a really lovely time with my friends tonight! We all brought food & wine and had a grand ol' time being us. These were all friends from high school who are all still my very best friends.
[we're love each other when we're fat with big noses kind of friends]
We are truly family & there is a comfort that can only be felt, not explained. I love, love, love them. I get to spend some more time with them next weekend because I'm the luckiest :)
& Third, Sarah Ann is having a giveaway that is promoting a really amazing cause.
"NightLight’s mission is to build relationships and provide hope, intervention, rescue and assistance to women and children exploited in the sex industry by offering alternative employment, vocational opportunities, life-skills training and physical, emotional and spiritual development to women seeking freedom. NightLight builds support networks internationally to intervene and assist women, men and children whose lives are negatively impacted by the sex industry." [via]
Sadly, I knew very little about sex trafficking until I watched the movie Taken. After seeing it, I wanted to learn more and watched a few documentaries(all heart breaking). I just felt like I needed to be informed though, and was really shocked by what I learned.
NightLight is not only rescuing girls and women from an awful life, but also giving them the opportunity to learn how to make and sell jewelry to support themselves.
Sarah Ann is giving away a pair of earrings that one of those lovely women made!
Please go enter the giveaway and keep NightLight in mind next time you need a gift or want to buy yourself something pretty. You can also donate here.
My favorite TV show?
You already know this one, huh?
