Happy Friday


ARGH! The second time I'm doing this post today as I just discovered my not-yet-2 year old somehow got into my account and deleted this post! What? She also managed to turn on a youtube Micky Mouse video once unassisted. I'm scared. 

I hope you're weekend is off to a good start. Mine (sorta) is. I love this little snapshot of my two lovies coloring above. About 2 feet away they would have all sorts of space to spread out and color, but no...they cram themselves into a little nook between the couch and the shelves, behind the plant. I guess they're sensing the need to get cozy...we've had a lovely indian summer, but the cooler temperatures are finally here. We've been trying to get out every weekend and take advantage of the lovely weather, I'm ready to slow down...hopefully starting with this weekend.

I've got some great spotlights in the works, but in the meantime I like to collect a links regarding special needs/disabilities to share when I don't have a spotlight. Here are some things that have caught my eye lately:


Would you ever hold a stranger's hand who also happened to have special needs on a bus? This guy did.

Honored to be mentioned in the CAP Beauty newsletter this week.

People with disabilities face discrimination every day. If you don't think it can happen in public, with multiple people participating, then let this be a wake up call to you. This makes me simultaneously angry and sick to my stomach. Here is the follow up news article.

On the flip side, so happy to see this model with limb differences receiving such positive attention!


Have a great weekend!

  1. Thanks for the links! On a side note, I love the basket/planter in the pic. Do you mind sharing where it is from?

  2. Hi Heather--not at all. It's from Ikea and it's actually a planter (as opposed to a basket I just turned into a planter.) It has a plastic lining and everything. However, I haven't seen it since one like it since the first time I got it...I was looking for another one like it myself. Good luck!
