Happy Friday! 
Somehow it’s already February, and Valentine’s Day is next week…umm, how did that happen? I’m definitely not ready for that yet! This weekend, I’m going to the local Planned Parenthood march to support women’s reproductive rights. I’m so excited to march!
One positive thing that I’ve noticed in these last few, insane weeks is that people are finally waking up and taking a stand. For so long, we (myself included) just stood idly by, occasionally bitching about some odd, outdated government policy that doesn’t really affect us personally, but sounds like it might make life difficult for some people. 
Now, however, we’re realizing that if we don’t collectively DO SOMETHING, nothing will change. It took an orange dictator to make us realize that we, the people, do have the power, if we harness it correctly. Together, we’re stronger, louder, and much more effective, and if Trump’s presidency brought that out of us a a society, his being elected might actually be the best thing to happen to the US in a long time. Strong words, I know, but I truly believe that. Oh the times, they are a-changin’, and I could not be more ready for it.

And now, on a totally different topic, here are some of this week’s favorites from around the web! Enjoy 🙂
