Reese Witherspoon's Hello Sunshine brand has done an exceptional job at bringing book clubs into the 21st century, and as someone who has a big goal to get back into reading this year, it's been a great relationship.
I'm tired of just seeing words like "ignorance, bigot, hypocritical, and greedy" come across my news feeds. I'm ready to showcase the compassion, acceptance, and love that I know the majority of this country has.
I truly can only sum up this experience in one word: incredible. I know so many of you think I'm insane, but you can't understand how much time I was wasting on these sites. Aimlessly scrolling for what probably totaled hours of every day, and for what? To keep up with people who I never speak to? To see what new meme Carley is sharing with her friends?
