Monday Inspiration: Gatsby

Last night I finally got to see The Great Gatsby. It’s a great movie with a killer soundtrack. Certain movies always inspire me, but there was one scene in particular that filled my chest with bubbles. You know that feeling when you see a scene and it’s magical, everything from the setting, the music, all […]

Books have and will always be a big inspiration. Some books inspire you to write. Some inspire you to run outside and spin around in the rain. Some inspire you to spend an hour snuggled on the couch with someone you love. And some inspire you to be better. A better writer. A better mother. […]
