Empowerment Project

I am constantly blown away by the women I'm friends with. For example, check out this project my friend Alina is starting:

She'll be posting submissions (artwork, poems, quotes, etc.) that empower rape survivors. How amazing is that? Alina is a rape survivor herself, but more important than that, she is brave and strong and funny and smart. The project will run a weekly post, and it's a way for other rape survivors (or really anyone interested in such an important issue) to share their stories and to have a place where they can find strength and joy.

I couldn't be more proud of what she is doing.

Ansley's First Trip to the Aquarium

We had free tickets to the Georgia Aquarium, courtesy of my amazing friend Lisa, so we took the baby, and I was shocked by how into it she was. I was kind of expecting her to be excited about being in a new place in general but I didn't really expect her to notice the fish. Um, I was wrong. Check out how much Ansley loved the big tank in the Tropical Diver exhibit.

Here she is admiring some catfish:

Here she is up close and personal with a, um, actually I forgot what that thing is called, but it's a really big fish and she has no idea it's there.

And here's one of the two of us together:
