Happy weekend, friends. I’m overwhelmed reading the news this morning and seeing the latest devastation from Hurricane Irma — it’s unimaginable that while our fellow Texans are still in the midst of recovery from Harvey, and so many islands have already been hit hard, Florida is gearing up for more devastation.  We’ll continue sharing about ways we can all help (our Hurricane Harvey list is right here), but for today – prayers for Florida, and sending so much love and hugs to our readers there. xo
