Repost @womenforblacklives • Get over yourself Get over ourselves I’d also like to add First Nations lives to this list. White comfort and white tears will never fix this white mess. We need to fix this, and fixing things means that things have to get painful and uncomfortable. #rachelcargle #blm #blacklivesmatter #endwhitesupremacy #bipoc #metis #firstnations … Continue reading Get over it
Baby’s first COVID test He was not thrilled that the gargle was off the table, but he had his swab like a big boy. Now we hide him away and await results!

Justice Ginsburg was a powerhouse, and continued working into her late 80s to try to keep the bench as balanced as she could. No one should go through the pain of late stage metastatic pancreatic cancer, while also knowing that the balance of power in her nation depended on her ability to continue to do … Continue reading Rest In Peace, Justice Ginsburg. And above all, just rest.

Happy Friday! It’s September, which was always an exciting time for me. My sister suggested a couple of years ago that September is another New Year, and since then, that is how I have tried to approach it. This New Year, I am continuing to be mindful with spending/saving, I am continuing with educating myself … Continue reading Happy Friday!
Back to school 2020 is a bit different than previous years, but the perfunctory first day of school photo is an old standard.
