This week was sort of a big deal – I got to go down to Jacksonville to the beautiful and historic Clay Theater in Green Cove Springs for Tuesdays Together! I’ve gone to other Tuesdays Together meetings before, all over the country, but nothing was quite like this experience. Rising Tide Society‘s creator Natalie Franke set off on this crazy road tour, and one of her first stops was in Jacksonville. I’d wanted to meet her for so long, since I’ve been a longtime follower on social media. And guess what? She’s just as kind, compassionate and amazing in person as she is online. I even got to meet her husband, and her little baby boy Huey.

I didn’t take my big camera, but here are a few cell phone snapshots of the night.
