So for a quick update (and I promise more soon!) I've been busy planning two events for the Mississippi Society (we just launched a new site--check it out HERE). The first one takes place this Tuesday evening: John Grisham's novel, A Time to Kill, has been adapted to a play version and is making its pre-Broadway debut at Arena Stage. The Mississippi Society is sponsoring an evening with Mr. Grisham and the Mississippi Congressional delegation. What began as a small idea in February has blossomed into a huge evening--we've sold over 400 tickets!
Read more for yourself about the event here.
As if that wasn't enough for one week, Mississippi on the Mall is 5 days later! This will be the 21st year! We have a new location--right by the Lincoln Memorial. My parents and brother are coming up and I'm so excited for them to experience the event. The George McConnell Band is returning as well as the delectable catfish prepared on site. It's going to be a great day. If you think about it: please pray for sunshine!
Despite these event, (oh and of course WORK) I've also been in the process of adapting to a new way of eating. I will be talking more about this later, but I read Kimberly Snyder's book, The Beauty Detox, and I don't know how to explain it other than to say that the pieces of the puzzle that I felt were missing in my eating habits were explained here. I've been eating primarily vegetarian for the last 6 + weeks and I have NEVER FELT BETTER IN MY LIFE. Food is so powerful and truly has the ability to heal us, make us stronger and give us abundant energy. I'm really excited about beginning to share more of my journey with you in the coming months. If you want to get a head start, check out Kim's blog or purchase the book! It's life changing!
And finally...it's almost time for me to begin a new furniture remodeling project! I have purchased a gallon of Annie Sloan's chalk paint and...well...pictures and details will be going up on this later. I need to get through this upcoming!
In closing, I'm soon heading to Atlanta for BOB AND MEG'S WEDDING! It's going to be an incredible weekend because all of my Ole Miss friends and all of my DC friends will be in once place! I'm also going to get to see Aunt Susan! And Mary Jane and Greg!
Have a good weekend! More updates soon!
