The build up to the March & the day of were amazing.  I am sure many felt it too, but may be left w/ feeling depleted today, filled w/ continued uncertainty & frustration & exhaustion.  Fortunately, because of the past year, I am didn't hit that wall & am feeling more inspire, passionate & invigorated to continue pushing Spread Love 2017 much further.  I hope that my enthusiasm (i.e. craziness) will pick you up & give you a little fuel to carry on, knowing we must be the change we want to see in the world.

First and foremost, I am having a one of a kind party that is open to all.  It may take a little courage to get outside your comfort zone (you can come and do none of the things in the event name & that really is enough!!) but I can 100% guarantee if you are free on next Friday, February 2nd and join me, you will be in for some laughter with strangers who will quickly become friends and do things that have not been...

Thoughts following another incredible Women's March in Seattle.  Re-inspired and hoping you will join me.  To my core I believe those who join the Spread Love movement will be impacted in ways they can never imagine or engineer AND CONNECTION IS THE ONLY WAY TO CONQUER FEAR AND HATE that has a strangle hold on our country.

I mentioned a blog post I wrote 2 yrs ago that I discovered this weekend, reaffirming I have always been moving towards fighting hate through creating new connections.  I am proud of what I wrote and would love for you to weigh in with your thoughts and ideas...my HUMAN CONNECTIVITY CONSERVATIONIST ARTICLE FROM 1/21/2015

I referred to Sarah C. in today's video.  She is a woman I have yet to meet in person but have been touched by her courage to join the movement in a big way.  Listen to the video above to learn more about this wonderful So. Cal woman.  Let her inspire you to step beyond your comfort zone... you will sur...

Thanks to the magic of Facebook & my oversharing ways, this morning I was able to watch a "live" video I shared in the early morning hours 1 year ago today.  I was with my family in Canada, on vacation & celebrating my son's 14th birthday.  I was overwhelmed by how I was going to ensure all the individuals who were ordering and excited to receive their signs/shirts in time for the inaugural Women's March that was just a few days away.  It was a very crazy time that affirmed to me that the work I was doing was resonating and I hoped it would carry on beyond the March.

Because I shudder at my own voice & I don't have time to create a polished, perfect presentation I never watch a video before hitting share.  I let my deep motivation to share what is in my head, hoping a few would resonate with friends and they could understand my "Why".  This morning, I forced myself to watch the video from a year ago and realized once I got through th...

These are all feelings that motivated me to get out of my car today and put myself out there knowing that my work may fall flat.  At the end of the day, I sit here worn out but relieved that at least I can say I tried...

This is the image I tried to capture while recording.  Beautiful, poignant temporary art in Capitol Hill.

Robin & I were planning on having lunch together to catch up but she ended up being my driving around the city wingman which made my day!  Just by chance (thanks to FB memory that popped up) it was 1 yr ago today when we reconnected while she picked up 13 signs to sell to her Bellevue and Oregon friends. We went to college together and had only seen each other once since. That day I told myself that regardless what happened with selling the 200 signs it was worth the risk because it allowed me to reconnect with an amazing woman. And now we try and see each other regularly❤️. Grateful for Lawn signs in my life!!  Always a reminder yo...

Day 370...thoughts about following my heart, raising money while also raising joy in my life, etc.It may come as a surprise to most, but sharing these videos is difficult for me...it kind of makes my skin crawl. I'm never polished enough, I don't take the time to brush my hair or organize my thoughts so I don't ramble or say something offensive...I just don't have time for that or if I do stop to try and make it polished, I will completely block myself from doing it at all. So I am choosing to try my best to turn off my head and follow my heart and just share my truth. Not sure it makes any impact or if anyone watches them but in the end at least I am getting out what rattles around in my head and heart until it cannot stay put and I can sleep a little easier for a day.

Mike Torres, owner of PrintingPlus...a stranger who became a friend 365 days ago. Spread

 A VLOG I did mid-way through writing this blog...too many thoughts, not enough time to write, edit and get it all down.  Trying to figure out best way to share thoughts....

For many months now, I have had friends and strangers tell me they are seeing the Spread Love signs "everywhere" in Seattle and different parts of the country and how proud I should be of this work.  I often feel bad that I do not meet their thoughtful words with proper thanks as I almost immediately reply back a quick thank you I know they are not everywhere because I have sold 6.000+ and there are hundreds of thousands of people just in Seattle so I know they are not everywhere and I have A LOT more work to do.  Towards the end of the year I realized I needed to soak in their words a bit more and be happy people are seeing them as they drive around their city. It is a hard balance to find...

On Saturday, I celebrated the 1 year anniversary of placing my 1st 200 sign order.  Although so much has happened in 1 year, I often find I have the same feelings I did during those first few weeks.  Love for the country I live in, hope for more positive conversations, connections and standing up for all individuals that make our country great and nervousness that I will not be able to realize the visions I see in my head for sharing the Spread Love message.  Almost everyday of 2017 that passion for something better combined with uncertainty of how I was going to move things forward propelled me to at least try.  I think 2018 will be more of the same and I hope the outcome for this campaign will far exceed the vision I see in my head...just like 2017.

Because, just like every other adult I know, I find my time is limited and pulled in a zillion directions everyday and putting articulate, edited thoughts to paper to share isn't possible, I am going to p...
