Happy Labor Day...a few links, if you are bored...

We started Ozark on Netflix, but it has me filled with angst.  (I need a break from all of that in our current climate).  This documentary, filmed locally in Baltimore looks more appealing and I can't wait to see. 

Cooler weather has me excited about soup.  This chowder looks good.

"As my son’s limitations became clearer, I found it harder every year
to write a vision statement for his I.E.P. Then he showed us how."  Love.  

Hurricane Harvey.  Giving money here, their mission statement.  "...we meet human needs in His name without discrimination".

Flooding trapped workers at a Mexican bakery for two days. They spent it baking for Harvey victims.

I love these jeans and loafers.  Even better than that, they are at my favorite local boutique.  Ask for Wendy.

Influenced by biases against urban education, parents are moving away from city schools and contributing to segregation in the process.

Listening to Like a Sinking Stone, Isaac Alexander.

New research shows one kind of teenage friendship is more likely to result in a happier, healthier adulthood.

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.  Easy way to call your rep and have your voice heard.

After a hike in Maine last summer, I am ready to explore more on foot.  Walks of a Lifetime might serve as a good source.

This feed has me crying tears of laughter.

A Corporate Session | Tribestrength | 2015

Last month I was hired to capture a new program run by one of my all time favorite people, Amy Reed, whose motivating message is that "strength training is empowering and useful, as well as enjoyable and 'fun' and you can 'start where you are'." 

Tribestrength says..."we’re young. we’re old. we’re women. we’re men. we’re former division I college athletes. we’re former couch potatoes. some of us are strong and some of us are working on it. what we have in common is a desire to be leaner, faster, stronger, and tougher than we are today." 

Intimidating as it may seem, coming from a former coach potato,  Amy Reed will empower and encourage the strength within yourself you never knew existed. 

A new 6-week Women's Strength Clinic session begins on 9/1.  It will run t/th from 10:15 - 11:30 through Thursday, 10/8.  $220.  The program takes place in Severna Park in little white building with a blue door.  There is no sign on the door, however inside is where all the magic begins.  Amy's approachable presence and smile will be there to greet you.
