You can call me Master

Hi Lovelies, this weekend was a big weekend! I graduated! You may now call me Master McWilliams. That does have a nice ring to it. I am officially done! 
The experience has been an amazing one and I've met some really rad people. I couldn't have asked for a better experience or better people to share it with. So grateful for an amazing year and half.

With that, I'll leave you with some inspiring words of wisdom from Howard Thurman,

"Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that, because what the world needs is people who have come alive."

Skinny Love by Bon Iver

Today I thought I would share with you a beautiful piece of music. I have been listening to this band nonstop since I discovered it on Spotify. This song, in particular, is my favorite. Bon Iver was just nominated for four Grammys, including record of the year and best new artist. 

The bands story is pretty cool. The lead singer, Justin Vernon, locked himself away in a remote cabin in Wisconsin for three months while he wrote and recorded all the songs on the album, Bon Iver. 

Enjoy <3
