As you are reading this I am in DC and this post is written on Saturday so I can’t tell you how I am doing, but I hope that everything is good and I am having a good time. Good but busy. And I hope you all had a beautiful weekend! Summer sunshine is a wonderful thing and I hope you got to spend some time in it! I have some good news to share as well. Next week I will be opening Power Monday up as a link-up! Anyone can link up their Monday post as long as it is a powerful message and gives everyone a boost into the week. Something inspiring, thoughtful, or even a good sweaty workout! We will see how it goes from there, but I am excited to finally get you all involved more with these posts!
