"You're my friend, kind of."

Lately, I've been obsessed with the movie Beasts of the Southern Wild. It's the beautifully-told story of Hushpuppy, a little girl who lives with her daddy in the Bathtub. When a storm ravages the place they call home, Hushpuppy and her mismatched family must find a way to survive the "end of the world." 

If you haven't seen Beasts yet, I highly recommend it. The beautiful story,  gorgeous filming, and the amazing music make my heart feel full and remind me of the importance of community. Sometimes life is hard, and all you can do is keep on keepin' on. BEAST IT.

"I see that I am a little piece of a big, big universe, and that makes it right."

Opening Day

Despite the fact that there was snow on my car this morning, (Go home, spring. You're drunk.) I won't let it get me down because the sun is shining and IT'S OPENING DAY! I know I say this every year, but I reallyreally think that this is the year the Cubs make it to the World Series. 

Seriously. I can feel it.   

Wishing all of you a happy Opening Day, no matter who you cheer for. (Unless it's the White Sox. Because duh.)
