For Your Wednesday

The month of July was a tough one. Between my sister and her family moving, a move of our own, some frustrating medical appointments, and the ongoing state of our country, I feel a bit like I've been wrung out to dry. In case your spirits need some lifting, too, enjoy some warm fuzzies below.

Rupi Kaur's poetry (one of her poems is featured above) is powerful and accessible. I've never devoured poetry quite like hers. She also has a wonderful Instagram.

This new children's book — called All Are Welcome — is an incredibly beautiful portrayal of representation and inclusion in a school community. This would be a lovely first day of school read for teachers in their classrooms or for families who want to start the year off on a joyful foot.

This bat video about had me in tears. I love the part when one baby nuzzles another baby.

This coconut date shake (!) is absolutely delicious and the perfect thing to blend up right before a summer evening walk!

Sending so much love to anyone who needs it. XO
