I’m truly sorry I didn’t get to come to you yesterday especially since it was Ash Wednesday/the beginning of Lent. I’m curious: how many of you celebrate the season of Lent?

I also had the privilege of attending an event last night hosted by Hilton Head. They’re celebrating the upcoming non-stop flight between Nashville and Hilton Head/Savannah on Allegiant Air. I haven’t been to Hilton Head since I played tennis in college, so I’m SO excited to add the beach destination to our list!

Even more exciting is what I got to do Tuesday night: watch an advanced screening of Captain Marvel.
If you had told me 10 years ago I’d be this giddy about seeing Marvel movies, I might not have believed you. Not only do I love them, it’s something my kids and I can bond over and talk about (a rarity when you have teenagers).

I don’t want to give too much away, but you’ll want to pay special attention during the Marvel opening credits and, of course, stay in your seat until the very last of the credits scroll up. (I dare say the mid-credits scene may be my favorite moment from the whole movie).

I loved seeing Jude Law & Annette Bening back on the big screen, not to mention the incomparable Samuel L. Jackson as a younger version of himself. And the audience literally gasped with laughter throughout the movie with all the 90’s references and reminders.

And don’t even get me started on the soundtrack: order it now.

Look, I’m not one of those people that’s going to dissect every aspect of a movie. In fact, I heard a TON of people doing just that before the film started; many were throwing shade at the “solo” Marvel movies. But based on the chatter around me as we left, most people walked out liking it more than they expected.

I will say it is the ULTIMATE girl power movie. And dare I say, there is one fight scene where even I was wondering if it was TOO much girl power.

But that being said, the overall message was powerful: Captain Marvel helps us find the superhero in all of us. Not only that, she reminds us it’s OK to be human and that emotion is what adds to her strength.

I walked away reminded to be the best version of myself and wanting to call my BFF’s and remind them who they are. Oh, and singing No Doubt’s “I’m just a girl” at the top of my lungs in my car on the way home.

Tell you what, just go see it for yourself. And yes, take the kids. Like any Marvel movie, you hear the token “S” word, but that’s about as harsh as it gets.

Are you excited for Captain Marvel, or are you waiting for Avengers: End Game?

May we all recognize our ability to create and/or resist the appropriate movement in our world around us.

Stay in the know on the go:
