When it’s miserable outside or the headlines are bleak, it’s easy to forget that there are inspiring people doing amazing things in Seattle. And then there are folks who are just out to create some joy…
I was walking during Snowmageddon a few days ago and spotted The Skipper–a little slippery slush couldn’t steal the bounce from her step. Seeing her bound up Pine made me–and literally every person in her wake–pick up my head and smile.
Some more things I’m appreciating right now:
So thanks, Raven, and everyone else who keeps Seattle sweet on this Valentine’s Day.

YWCA needs some donations for domestic violence shelters for Mother’s Day!
Here’s an ask from the YWCA:
The YWCA of Seattle is hosting a Mother’s Day program for all the Mothers in our homeless shelters!
So many of the mothers in our shelters are doing so much to keep their family together, that there is not much time left for themselves. We hope to provide them a little pampering in honor of “THEIR” day. With resources low, and stress levels high, we are hoping to provide the children a basket filled with pampering and hygienic items to be their present to MOM!
We hope you would be willing to put together 1 to 100 Mother’s Day Baskets, stuffed with things like soaps, lotions, candles, creams, hair stuff, planners, nail polish, gift cards, lipstick and little chocolates. Please include an unsigned card for the kids to sign and give to mom. They can be the store assembled gift sets, or build one yourself in a little gift bag, either way we need almost 1000 total this year!
Drop off is MONDAY May 7th 8am-12pm at our E. Cherry offices. I thank you so much in advance for your generosity and how much this helps the women feel special!

Join me at my office on Saturday, March 24, between 9am-12pm (I’ll be there after 10) for a shredding party! We’ll be hanging out with coffee and snacks. Bring all your old tax docs, book reports, and newspapers and watch the truck munch ’em. If you have boxes but aren’t able to drop them off, get in touch and I’ll arrange for a pickup. Hope to see you there!
