Lot 48: its all just a whole bunch of heartbreak over here.

June 22, 2018

its all just a whole bunch of heartbreak over here.

my heart is absolutely shattered for what is happening in the world. with these families who are separated, i feel so helpless and so angry and frustrated. and that is just the beginning of what's going on lately.

a lot of things are making me really, really sad lately. i'm talking about it because it is waaay past the time that we talk openly about mental health. its so hidden, something to be embarrassed about, so taboo. you think you aren't strong, that you're a loser, that you are weak. all those are untrue. kate spade and anthony bourdain's suicides are tragic. but it doesn't have to be all bad. this can be a wake up call to break the social norm of hiding your depression, not talking about it and being ashamed about it. there is this incredible article about suicide and depression written by the lovely joanna goddard of a cup of jo. it explains things in ways people without depression wouldn't understand. it really is a beautiful article.

moving on to family separation. if you follow me on instagram, you may have seen all my posts of outrage and also how you can help. this article from the huffington post is a great summary of how you can help. i can't keep talking about it. it makes me too upset.
man did this week drag. it was endless. and we still have friday workday to tackle. taran had to go out of town again and was gone for 3 days. really, i think this week dragged because we are going to six flags tomorrow and even though i have been there 3 times in the last month, i get SO excited when we go and look forward to it all week. its my happy place.
speaking of six flags, we are members at six flags (thanks mom for the awesome birthday present!) and this weekend is bring a guest for free. so we are taking our dear couple friends! i love that we have couple friends. i cant wait to play all day.

next weekend we are heading to utah for taran's brother's wedding! but mostly, im going so i can see my babies. i miss them SO MUCH.
