How y'all doin'. I hope y'all are gettin' rain too. It's stormin' like crazy here but it's all good cause I'm off. I'm headed to Jackson Mississippi for the next few days for a family reunion. If you wanna follow my adventures, I'll be usin' the hashtag #HeyJackson on social media. My family ain't gonna know what hit 'em. My camera is charged and ready. I even bought a new memory card that hold just around 2,000 pics.

I'm also real excited cause I'm bringin' my #GiveLove #GiveLove letter to Mississippi.The short version: I leave anonymous "love notes" in hopes that it will encourage and bless someone. Y'all can click the links if you want more info or wanna see other letters I've left.

What are y'all's plans for the holiday weekend. Does your family do family reunion as big as mine? What's a must for you when vacationin'. I hope y'all have a great weekend and I'll see y'all Monday.

    1. Not that I know yet. I have visited some of the places in Dallas where I placed them and they were taken. So hopefully it blessed them and put a smile on their face. But I do know a few people have done their own and then tagged me.
