Real life fairy tale.

She was absolute perfection.
The DRESS, the hair, the jewelry, the tiara, the train....all tastefully fit for the future
Queen of England. Catherine Duchess of Cambridge for now.

On another note, I'm off to the BEACH for the weekend. SO excited! I need a vacation!

Royal Wedding

Although I am more excited than most, I must admit, the hype over this wedding is a bit extreme. Below are a collection of memorabilia and absurdities I found humorous.

A dish towel. Really?

Barf bag. Classic.

He's not really my type, but I think I'd look fabulous in a tiara.

Now that is some great PR!

I will be up bright and early Friday morning to make sure I don't miss a second.

I'm most excited to see her dress...naturally....but I'm also interested in seeing how much the Queen REALLY likes her - we will know immediately from the tiara. Apparently, the Queen is expected to design and gift one for her since Kate is not royal and does not have one of her own. Hopefully she won't be given a hand-me-down!

Good Hair.

Long hair can get boring. It's so easy to just wear it the same everyday - down and straight. As the Georgia heat starts to creep in, I'll be wearing it up more and more....
so here are a few ideas I'll be trying in the coming weeks!

CARRIE! I will be bringing this picture along on my next haircut. Love her hair!

Speaking of Carrie....It's no secret that she is my absolute favorite country artist. Such a beautiful gift and heart for God. Happy to see she has stayed true to herself despite all the fame and success. Young girls need role models!

The American Dream

"The American Dream" looks different to everyone, but we all share a common thread in our desire to be A. comfortable, B. financially stable and C. happy.

Truth be told, I am also lumped in this category because, I too, desire these things for me life and for the lives of the people I love.
My newest difficulty has come from laying everything (everything) down on the line and saying "God, this life isn't about me, it's about You, it's about Your comfort, Your stability, Your happiness."

Radical by David Platt challenges the happy-go-lucky christian in us all to take a step back and think about the serious epidemic of "feel good" christianity that has hit America by storm. Since when did serving become community service? Since when did worship become a rock concert? Since when did a God's pastors become stand-up comics?
Now don't get me wrong, I could listen to Chris Tomlin lead worship all day long, and I love a good joke more than most, but WOW has this book opened my eyes to what the REAL point behind all the show is.

If you're looking for a feel good book...this is not it. But, if you want to hear from Platt, who successfully led one of the largest (4,000 member) churches in Alabama before realizing all this - dive in!

"In direct contradiction to the American dream, God actually delights in exalting our inability. He intentionally puts his people in situations where they come face to face with their need for Him. In the process he powerfully demonstrates his ability to provide everything his people need in ways they could never have mustered up or imagined. And in the end, he makes much of his own name." - Radical

MM: Monogram Monday

I have a slightly unhealthy love of Monograms. It is true.
But, acceptance is the first step right?
So, in that spirit...I hereby do accept to incorporate all of the below into my
home/life in the near future.

THE Reading List. #PRIntern #HAPPO

Photo courtesy of PR Daily.

I am OFFICIALLY one, yes one, month away from finishing my internship and I terror (of not finding a real job and being an intern for the rest of my life) has set in. I have literally absolutely LOVED my internship. Learned a ton, made some new friends and got published (more than once thankyouverymuch).
So, as reality starts to hit I've been reading, ALOT. My go-to is PRDaily of course, but I've also stumbled upon some great blogs. I will never tire of learning and discovering new, cutting-edge, ways to become the best at what I do.
I wrote a few press releases this week so I've been reading up on SEO techniques for press releases and how to pitch to the media. There are also a few Twitter-related articles that I found super interesting. ENJOY!
