A baby shower + an inspiring song

Hey all! Fun social happening from this past weekend–my friend’s baby shower!

It was a huge pin-wheel themed celebration filled with tons of love for their little girl to be arriving in November. Everyone was happy and excited and the mom-to-be was glowing!

In other news, I heard an incredible song yesterday and it really resonated. Passenger, a really unique one-man band (you might know him from the song “Let Her Go”), has a new song called “Scare Away the Dark”. It’s a message of how our society needs to live, run around in nature, love, and just stop with all the fear. My favorite line:

If we all light up we can scare away the dark.

Here is a beautiful acoustic version from his appearance on the Today Show:

It definitely inspired me to put down the phone, close the computer, and just be present. I know that’s the total opposite from being the creator of a blog, but everyone needs to disconnect every once in awhile, right?!

So my challenge for you: GET OUTSIDE while the summer is still kickin’!
