Anti-Racism Resources

The recent tragedies of Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and George Floyd have been devastating and heartbreaking.  I have found myself really reflecting on how I can do better. I’m definitely no expert on anti-racism, but I’m continuing to educate myself on how to actively be anti-racist, and I thought it would be helpful to share some anti-racism resources that I have found with you all.  I’m extremely grateful for the many social media posts, blog posts, and internet articles that have provided such great resources during this movement.

be the change.

Here are a few illustrations from Jane Mount & Ideal Bookshelf that I have found so helpful! You can find a full Anti-Racist Book list here on the Bookshop. Although many books are backordered or sold out, J & I have been purchasing them digitally, as well as incorporating audiobooks.

anti-racist book list

The books featured in the above print are anti-racism books. We just finished Just Mercy (we decided to read it after watching the movie a few weeks ago — highly recommend both) and it was a great book to start out with! Next up on our list is White Fragility.

Both the above and below prints consist of old and new books written by Black authors. Some are non-fiction, while others are fiction.

10/27/18 Mr. & Mrs. White

There’s not a day that goes by when I don’t feel so blessed to be Jordan’s wife. He is my everything. These photos and video are the sweetest reminder of our love for one another. So, grab a cup of coffee, pull up a seat, and try not to bawl your eyes out (because I know we did). Every time we look through our photos and watch our video, we cry the happiest tears.

The Proposal

It’s crazy what can happen in a year. I met the love of my life and the rest is history. I was having a hard time ending this post, because frankly, I think I could talk about that evening forever. Then I realized that this post doesn’t have an ending, but instead, a beginning. Thank you so much for all of the love, excitement, and gratitude.

Dark Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Bread

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is bake my dark chocolate chip pumpkin bread! I’ve made it *so* many times for me, J, and friends & family. It’s moist, decadent, and super easy to make! It also makes for a great DIY housewarming gift.

I’m just an everyday gal who can go from gym to glam in record timing. I run on sarcasm & coffee on the weekdays and sass & vino on the weekends! I strive to stay fit, stylish, and healthy, while also trying to be the very best version of myself (sounds easy enough, right?).   MEET GRACE ⟶
