Driftwood Beach


The weather has started looking up in Tennessee, and I'm beginning to think the groundhog may have been correct in his prediction for an early spring. The forecast is remaining steady with nearly warm temperatures, and with every new day I feel like the snow and slush are becoming things of a winter past. And as much as I can feel my soul stretching its legs after hibernation, the morning chirps of birds are only reminding me more of how much I miss my south Georgia home.

Give Back: Gamma Phi Beta Sorority and Girls on the Run International

As part of my Year of 52 and 12, every month I'm supporting organizations and causes that I believe in. I'm a firm believer in "putting my money where my mouth is." With such a highly connected world, it's so incredibly easy to ramble on and on about "the issues" on social media, but seldom do we do much more than talk about it. I'm tired of simply talking about it; I want to be about it. Every month, I want to share what I'm doing to "give back" as a way to encourage you to let your actions speak louder. Whether you choose to support the same cause as me or something entirely different, it is my hope that we all make this year the year that we did something good for the world in which we live.
It is my hope that we act.
