Love the color, the font and the message! What can I say, I’m a designer at heart. But, I do truly LOVE that the Mayor of DC had city workers paint the words “Black Lives Matter” on the street that leads to the White House and the road renamed Black Lives Matter Plaza last Friday. Like so many people, I took time the last couple of weeks to pause, listen, watch and learn. Talk about an eye opener. I have SO much to learn, but I’m open and ready to do the work. I will be returning to design and lifestyle related posts, but please know I will continue to do what I can by donating my time and money, signing petitions, educating myself, VOTING (well as soon as I become a US citizen) and doing whatever else I can to help us move forward. Because I truly believe (and always have) #blacklivesmatter.
Here are a few links from around the web to help kick start your week:
I love this list of 200+ highly recommended black owned business to support.
15 children’s books by black authors.
Fun to watch this video and see the reaction of two young black men as they hear the Carpenters, We’ve Only Just Begun for the first time.
Could this be the end of the race for Cross Fit?
I suspect we’ll be spending many days at the beach this summer so, I’ve got my eye on this swimsuit.
We made this dish last week and it’s already on repeat.
Next time the boys ask me to make Chocolate Chip Cookies I think I’ll surprise them and make this instead!
I hope you all have a great week!
