My favorite Insta account right now. It's photos of home decor done wrong.
Too funny. Cringe-y. Ugly. What were they thinking? :)

You will love your own home after viewing this account. I promise.


This is the second rainy summer Saturday in a row. If you don't work inside an office M - F, you might not obsess about the weather like I do.

There's so much a person CAN do on a rainy Saturday, tho, isn't there?
I am doing NONE of those things.

I have a feeling I've wasted a perfectly fine day.


Three things I'm thankful for:

1. FINAL dentist appointment (FOR REAL) was last night. Yes. Friday night. He offered to stay late to get 'er done. Three NEW teeth. All uniform in size, shape and colour. My gums are pretty swollen today today.
(Ahh. That's what I did today! I took it easy because last night's marathon dental appointment was exhausting. And my mouth is kinda tender. SO grateful for Dr. Lee and his commitment to getting it right. Two months, four sets of temporaries, nine appointments ... and Yay. We're done.)

2. Days when I can be totally lazy and no one cares judges me.

3. People who make me think. Read two books and attended a free public lecture at Regent on Wednesday. (Ah. That's the other thing I did today. I pondered all the info that entered my head recently.)

Immaculee Ilibagiza survived the Rwanda genocide by hiding in a neighbour's 3' x 4' bathroom with 8 other women for three months. This is her story. Oy.

Gary Haugen is an American attorney who is the Founder, CEO, and former President of International Justice Mission, a global organization that protects the poor from violence throughout the developing world. His book challenges readers to live braver (not safer) lives. I'm going to think about his challenge alot in the coming days. 

He did a TED talk:

And I drove into Vancouver to listen to Gordon Smith, President of Ambrose University, to talk about Christians being a minority, just like the church was way back in the day. He is my favorite public lecturer. If you get a chance to see/hear him - do it.

Here's a clip of his style:

Thankful that I have access to, and can learn from, thinkers.
