I am still sipping on this ice cold, refreshing #Lemonade that Beyonce served us all. Some profound writers and thinkers are drinking it too.

Janet Mock gave me chills with her epic rundown of Lemonade, Their Eyes Were Watching God, and the burden of black womanhood.
The New Yorker even had commentary
Also, April 27th, marked 100 days until the Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I love the Olympics. The Olympics ads are, to me, just as good as the Superbowl ads. P&G has been winning for several years with their Thank You Mom campaign. The SoChi ad is still available here, but the one for the 2016 Summer Olympics is heavier and brought me to tears at my desk at work. It’s amazing. Not only is P&G sending a powerful message about the strength and importance of mothers, but they do it by showing ALL the moms (read: colorful moms). This is way to make ads people. Follow them.
#IndependentBookstoreDay was April 30th. J and I spent the day on a self-made book crawl. It may have been the best thing to happen to me this year. So many good books! It’ll get a separate post soon. Here’s J’s post and we were together, so it’s kind of the same.
Hot drinks and new books. That is living your best life

That’s all for me. Have a great week!
P.S.: If you have an iPhone, I set up a Litsy account. Litsy is the child of Goodreads and Instagram. It’s great. You can find me there as Lucky_LaDee.
