Saturday night we celebrated (mourned) with some of my closest friends as they take other opportunities and move to Atlanta. I still can't believe it as I type this! It's sad and I will miss them dearly but luckily Stefanie is the kind of friend that I talk to almost daily and I know we will be planning lots of trips to stay close. It was such a good time getting everyone together for one last hurrah in Louisville with them. We of course had to send them off with some KY swag and moonshine.
Sunday I spent all day in training sessions. But these were actually enjoyable! I am lucky to be apart of Emerge Kentucky 2016. Emerge is a program dedicated to training and educating Democratic women interested in politics. They have programs in many states and I would highly encourage you to check it out if this sort of thing strikes your fancy. I will doing one weekend training per month for the next 6 months. I can't wait to learn more with these brilliant ladies.

What makes the end of a weekend less miserable? PUPPIES. I get to cuddle and play with these FIVE puppies for the next few days until they're off on the next leg of their forever home journey. The cuteness is overwhelming.
Finally, here's some Monday motivation to get us through the week!
