There was a real sense of belonging and admiration in this Comic Con world. And I really loved that.

I'll Have What She's Having | September

1. Mindy Kaling’s Dartmouth Speech. She talks about how much of her life has been lived out of order... and how okay that is. I'm a sucker for a good commencement speech--- do you have a fave you've listened to?

2. Season Twos....

This is Us. Could I argue this is one of the most captivating and real shows on television right now? Brett has even started sitting through a handful of episodes with me. I've caught those tears in his eyes a few times. And me? I've blubbered through every episode.

I'll have what she's having is also my new monthly pop-culture and all things interesting series. I'm one of those people who is filled with joy when I share a something or other with someone else and they are changed or impacted by that something or other. Like a movie, song, piece of art, pair of good shoes, inspirational quote, etc. 

So, maybe I'll share what I'm loving with you. And maybe you'll share something with me too? What inspires you this month? This week? What song are you obsessed with? What movie do is a must for you this year?
