Some Fresh Air

Happy Monday! I’m sure that most of you have the day off to honor the life of Martin Luther King Jr. He has long been one of my heroes. A man who never quit. Never gave up. Who stood up for the oppressed and demanded an end to their suffering. A man who was inspired by God and turned the pain in his life into light for others. He was, and continues to be, a light and fresh air for others.

So, in honor of him, I thought I would share some things that are fresh air to me. They make me smile, or inspire me, or bring beauty to a space. Some are serious, some are silly. Some are important, some are not. As a collective, however, they create a space of fresh air. Of hope. of laughter. Of life without worries.

Take a gander.

Which of them did you love?

And even though it’s a holiday, it’s not Monday without a Nail of the Week post!


I’m in love with this mani. A beautiful mix of metallic and matte, Broken Arrow makes for a beautiful mani. And I want that coffee again. That is all. Enjoy your Monday!
