First things first. I know you have thought it, I know you have read it, but the blogging community is kinda the shit. The thoughtful comments and emails that I received yesterday are why I don’t just give up on this whole idea… I was nervous to publish yesterday’s post. Not because I am afraid of sharing (ha! You wish) but because lifestyle bloggers always apologize for not keeping things light and uplifting. But we are writing the rules right now, right? I am thinking about making this kind of talk more regular. I know that it might be kind of isolating. Maybe you haven’t struggled with mental illness. On the other hand, I am pretty sure most of us have had a negative time in our life. I am sure everyone knows someone dealing with depression or something similar. The statistics are staggering. I would want to have discussions about coping skills, about talking to our friends and family. I don’t know. Thoughts?
As for the weekend, it is supposed to be sunny in Seattle! All sun and warm weather.. I want to pack up some snacks and find a little beach to visit. David is asking around, but if I have any Seattle readers, let me know your suggestions. Someplace cute and beachy with a great place for dinner nearby? I want to pretend I am on vacation.
Ok, ok. here are the links.
Um, yes. Few things make me happier than Kareem Abdul-Jabbar talking about The Real Housewives. Seriously. Gold.
Not to get political, but this was very interesting to me.
You guys, this will make you smile. Also, I have a photo that would totally take the cake. Similar to this, but worse!
So. Awesome. Swim suits for all!
Check our Roxanne’s portfolio. I am loving seeing her drawing a day work progress.
I have a pile of over-ripe bananas, and I am very interested in these healthy suggestions for banana bread.
Obsessed with this eye!
