Happy Sunday to all you writers & creatives 👋

How’s everyone doing? I’m doing great!

Exciting week here in Austin with SXSW events all week long!!! If any of you are attending or know of cool (and preferably free 🥹) events going on, I’d love to hear about it! You can catch me at these SXSW Community Concerts at Lady Bird Lake later on this week 🕺
