mid-week round-up

Hi friends! I’m back from Kentucky! I can’t believe it’s been 2 weeks since I last posted. Time flies! That means it’s time for another round-up of links…but first, let me catch you up. When we last spoke I was flying to Lexington for a much-needed visit with my Mom. We managed to pack in a lot of fun (and a lot of food!) in my quick trip. Then, she drove me down to Bowling Green. I spent the next 9 days working at the Western Kentucky University – Summer Forensics Institute in the Original Oratory lab. The lab was an absolute blast and we had a wonderful group of students who worked super hard. And in between coaching and editing speeches, I got to hang out with the other folks working at the institute…who just happen to be some of my favorite folks in the whole dang world!!! We spent every evening in fits of laughter. After a couple uneventful flights, I made my return to Miami. (Bienvenidos a Miami!) It was a great trip but I’m happy to be back with Chet and Wink!!

mid-week round-up

straw bales

Have any big plans for the holiday weekend? I recently nabbed an extra part-time job (no rest for the wicked!) and have opted to work for the majority of the time. However, I’ve been reading this book, which has inspired me to want to pick up a copy of Vogue and leaf through the pages by the pool. If only this tropical storm would get out the way!!! In the mean time, I’m excited to share more details of our wedding weekend. Back tomorrow with the rehearsal picnic! Stay tuned. Now onto some links…

“I want to go back and rebuild Syria.”

One second a day.

In order to bring attention to the ongoing violence in Syria, a British creative agency created a public service announcement titled “Most Shocking Second a Day Video”. Playing on the one-second-a-day videos popularized by many a YouTuber, the PSA demonstrates how one little girl’s world can come crashing down around her in just the span of a year.

The approach is haunting and the end, which states, “Just because it isn’t happening here doesn’t mean it isn’t happening,” is an important truth.
