snacks n’ strokes — july 29

Come paint a masterpiece and eat like royalty at Snacks N’ Strokes on Tuesday, July 29, to raise money for the American Heart Association!

It’s a $20 minimum donation (per person) to join me, the fantastic Amanda Dyer and any friends and family you invite as we walk through the painting process to create either a 16×12 bold Nashville skyline or a homemade nature scene. Don’t consider yourself an artist? Have no fear! Amanda and I are excited to glide you through the process while you dine on delicious treats!


This event is open to all — So, invite your friends, family and coworkers and make a night of it! We will be meeting at 5:30 pm at the Immanuel Nazarene Church off Charlotte in west Nashville on Tuesday, July 29, so just come on over after work prepared to paint!

RSVP here so we can be prepared with your snacks and art supplies!

All supplies will be provided. You will go home with a wonderful new work (created by you!) to spruce up that wall that just needs a little something at home. Or, hey, this could be a perfect gift for that loved one’s upcoming birthday. Who doesn’t love a handmade painting as a gift!

So, come give to a great cause and eat snacks and paint. It’s gonna be fun. And again, no skills necessary. We’ll ease you into it before you even realize you’ve created something cool!

Here’s that RSVP link one more time, and yeah, we’ll see ya there.
Godspeed, wonderful friends.

uncle progress — both hands fundraiser


show some love
Hey friends — My sister and bro (in law), Lindsey and Jonathan Hays, are patiently waiting on news of their upcoming Ethiopia adoption. (Meanwhile they are also having a baby this summer.) I’m about to launch to Uncle Level 2 and couldn’t be more excited about it.

For the adoption, they partnered with Both Hands — This great organization who helps bring home orphans (with money) and serve widows (with people). The idea is like those fun runs we did back in elementary school. Will you sponsor me while I work on this widow’s house kinda thing (instead of run laps around the school).

We will be sprucing up the home of one Ms. June, a lovely woman in Franklin, TN who unfortunately lost her husband 13 years ago. Then of course, the generous donations head 100% toward the expensive adoption process to bring Adelaide’s future cousin home.

Please consider sponsoring Kelly and me to “serve a widow to bring home an orphan.”

Way more info, a classic Keoni K pic of Linz and Jonathan, and the donate button found over here at bothhandsfoundation.org/jonathan-and-lindsey-hays. Or just…
