For the second year, my friend Danielle and I made a trip to Washington DC for the Nothing But Nets Leadership Summit with the UN Foundation and JCI USA. This advocacy summit’s goal is to raise awareness and support for the Nothing But Nets campaign and their work to eliminate malaria.
My mom, sister and I have taken up the hobby of antiquing. When we have a free morning on the weekends, we will pile into my car and travel to a nearby town to browse the wares in the various antique malls in our area.

Just a few snaps from my recent visit to Grand Traverse Commons, formerly known as the Traverse City State Hospital.
cat ladies are a special breed. once you find one, it opens the flood gates of memes and videos that bring sheer joy and comradery unlike most other connections.
last weekend started out ROUGH. i got up early to work at a craft show and it didn’t go all that well, and came home to some stuff that was totally harshing my mellow and that made me want to crawl into bed and never leave.
the last thing i wanted to do was to leave my house, but thankfully facebook reminded me that i was interested in attending the 15th Annual Michigan Lavender Festival. feeling particularly alone, i resolved myself that i might as well make the most of the last full day of the weekend by spending it by myself doing what i wanted to do. so, at 10am on Sunday, i packed up my car and drove three and a half hours across the state to attend the lavender festival. and i’m so glad i did.
