I’m good! It’s okay! I’m fine! 

I'm reading a book right now called Nothing To Prove by Jennie Allen and it's great. I'm sure I'll write about so much coming out of my heart because of this book in the near future.

all the single ladies.

Girls, girls, girls, girls, girls... Let's talk. I'm really afraid for girls these days. It scares me that I'm raising a daughter in this world.
