Beach day

 

The return of warm weather. It felt like it was never going to come. We are back at the beach attempting to frolic in too-cold water on a beach that lost half of its area thanks to rising water levels. It is glorious in so many ways.

Sisters collaborating on an engineering project while the sun begins to cure the winter paleness from their skin. One sister drilling into the sand with all of her might, the other sculpting the sides into an engineered smoothness Jony Ive would approve of. First bathing suit lines of the year followed by first ice creams. Smiles everywhere.

After a winter that felt like a perpetual night on the couch it was refreshing to see that my family still knew how to do summer right. Beach. Conquered.
 

 

Come and Take It

“Come And Take It” Women’s Reproductive Rights T-Shirt! Based upon the historic “Come And Take It” battle flag of the Texas Revolution, this sticker was conceived by Carrie Collier-Brown and designed by Cole Latimer, both longtime Texas Troublemakers.
$12.00 from the sale of each t-shirt benefits Planned Parenthood of Greater Texas and The Texas Democratic Party in an equal split.
The one-color graphic is imprinted on a TEXAS ORANGE 100% pre-shrunk cotton standard tee (Gildan)

Great idea for a great cause.
