- Falling asleep last night, thinking about this wild state that our Earth is in. I’ll admit, logically, I know that none of this is anything novel. Disasters of the natural and political variety have been happening all over the planet, every day, for longer than any of us have been around. We’ve just been mostly fortunate enough to be shielded from the brunt of it all. But emotionally, right now it feels like the planet is crying out, begging us to pay attention. My heart breaks into pieces looking at images of the forest fires in Oregon and the flooded streets of Houston. I feel helpless continually hoping for good news in our leadership’s decisions. How do we help protect the lands we love exploring that are under (real) attack from climate change? How do we help ensure that humans who have called this country “home” for their entire lives aren’t sent off to a foreign land they’ve never actually known? Or that our own citizens are given equal rights and opportunities and protections? How do we actively engage in these and so many more arenas with our whole hearts and still live the day-to-day realities of answering emails and buying groceries?? We give our resources where we can (The Red Cross, ACLU, and your local park trust or conservation groups are a great place to start. Go on, go donate now, I'll wait!), we give our time to call those in leadership and talk to our communities and make our voices heard. And it might not be much, but it will be something. And if we can all do it together, our little splashes can become huge tides.

- Yesterday, with his bride by his side, Peter looked out at his wedding reception and said to his guests, "Weddings are unbelievable. Not because of the cost, or the details, or the planning... but because it's the one time in your life where you get to have all of your favorite people in one room. Together. It's overwhelming." And I couldn't stop smiling knowing that these two GET it. The biggest congratulations to two souls who love others with their whole hearts. I couldn't be more excited for you! #shakeittothebete
