I always love posts from bloggers about what I've missed during the week or a list of things I need to check out. guessed it! I'm making a list of things you need to check out this weekend! 1. My husband, Jordan, sent me a link to this artist the other day because he thought I may like her. Then my hair girl/same heart sister, Cassie, also posted about how amazing she is. So yes. Run, listen now! Julien Baker is hauntingly talented. You can listen on SoundCloud and/or buy her album here ! 2. Adele made us wait for her new music. The new single and video dropped this morning! My summary? WORTH. THE. WAIT.  3. Justin Bieber, whom you already know I adore, released his new song Sorry on Thursday. Just bought it on iTunes and am prepared to dance all weekend! 4.

On community and friendship and the difference between.

I've felt so disconnected from this space and writing here. I think it's because I've had something in my drafts since November, and I know I have to write it out. I procrastinate hard things.
