Wow, so that was a fairly controversial post - I actually would have gladly trumped/buried it a few days ago with any number of cute pictures dug out of the good ole Kortland Baby Archives, but alas, I have been swamped! Final word regarding that whole hot mess of an argument? Okay, well here it is: I have many loved ones who have suffered with (and are successfully living with) depression, and I felt that their voices should be heard and their lives and inherent goodness should be defended and celebrated. I also think that the religious beliefs of every person on this planet should be honored and respected, even if they are not beliefs that you or I personally hold dear.That's all. (Oh, and I'm a little sassy. Sorry about that, I'm working on it...)
Now, onto something really positive and fun - I am loving Communal Global! Ah! *squeal!* For the past week we have enjoyed photographic contributions from women hailing from:
Norway, Las Vegas, The Bahamas, Utah (holla!), Germany, and Philadelphia!
2 short days ago, our JAPAN representative joined in!
and now, guess what!? Next Monday we are welcoming on the rest of our crew. These women are from:
South Africa, Dubai, Hong Kong, Canada, and the South (a.k.a Georgia)! Woot woot! I told our Southern Gal that the South was pretty much it's own country anyway - so we'd LOVE a lil' peek into her world, now wouldn't we? (Plus, they are all great photographers, so it is just going to be more and more and more fun!)
So do me a favor and go check it out! Become a follower. All of the other contributors have lots of friends following, and I need to represent yo! Make a Communal Global button and put it on your blog! Get involved with this fun opportunity to see how women live around the world!
Have you ever noticed that we sometimes tend to flock to negativity and controversy yet may passively overlook things that are good, positive, and beautiful? It's something that I do (obviously). So hey, hows 'bout helping me shake off some of the argumentative negativity that is plaguing my blog by balancing it out with something super nice and happy?
You can help! Leave a happy comment here like:
"Yay Communal Global!" or "I love kittens and rainbows!" or "chocolate and peanut butter rock!" or "Hug a puppy today!" or "I love shoes!"
(You get the idea.) I need to beat 35 comments in order to properly balance the chi of my blog - so don't leave me hangin, okay? (Seriously, leave a happy-ment! I get 200-300 hits a day... it would be nice to know who my blog buddies are!) I would bribe you with carrot cake cupcakes... but I don't think I have the energy to make them just yet, so just do it out of the goodness of your hearts, mmmmmkay?
