Taking a moment to just be thankful. Monday is something many people dread and I can honestly say it's one of my favorite days of the week. Today, I got to set the tone for my week by literally doing every activity I love. Started off by teaching a morning class, was able to create music with my love, spent time with nature, and now heading to a yoga class myself. Continuing to surround myself with things, experiences, and people that make me so happy. I feel so blessed God gave me a life full of opportunity for joy. Happy Monday beautiful people.
Dear Jessi and Jon,
Just like so many other little girls, the Climb helped me during the time of life that is never easy or elegant for anyone – middle school. It was encouragement for the smallest and the largest battles. It is a song that resonates again and again.
Jessi, you write songs that aim right for the heart. I strive every day to develop my writing so that I can try to tell stories and capture emotions the way you do. The Climb will always remind me of what it was like being young and not knowing where to start with these big dreams.
Jon, I've loved our random hang outs after writes and our tipsy conversations with Jay at firefly. I'll always look up to you, not just cause your insanely tall, haha but because of your advice and abilities.
Would love to be a third cowriter next time y'all are lookin for one.

Dear TJ, John and Shane,
When I first heard "Stay A Little Longer," I couldn’t stop hitting repeat. This song just makes me happy and I had to learn every word and every chord right away.
TJ & John: I love what this song has done for your careers… from landing you your first No.1 to a GRAMMY. It’s SO encouraging and I think I speak for a lot of people when I tell you that you guys are paving the way for an entire generation. Thank you for being true songwriters and musicians.
Shane, you’ve written all of my favorite songs… this is one of a hundred examples of the way you capture magic in a song. I can’t believe I am getting to work with one of my heroes and I can’t thank you enough for believing in me.
