Wow, it’s been a crazy couple of weeks. I know it’s hard to believe because posting on WYG has been scarce to say the least, but please believe we’ve been working super hard behind the scenes. Case in point:
Someone has to count how fast Ginny can run around the dining table for lords sake.
Moving on, I’m not sure if you noticed but a certain little site got a great big makeover.
[Cue makeover movie montage]
In order to easily transition everything to the new site we kept posting and commenting to a minimum; that’s why we’ve been so slackadaisical. We’re hoping the changes will make navigation easier for you guys and we’d appreciate your feedback if anything doesn’t make sense or just plain doesn’t work. We’re still working out the kinks, but so far we’re pretty happy with the new format. You might even say we’re grateful.
Did someone say grateful?!?
Yeah that’s right, we’re on another gratitude kick. I’m sorry guys, I know it’s annoying…it annoys me too…but it works. Let me back up for those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about.
Litsa and I aren’t always great at seeing the positive. We try to be constructive, but admittedly we’re not always optimistic. Usually when life gives us lemons we chop them up and go looking for a cocktail. Every once in a while though we challenge one another to take note of the small things. Our gratitudes are rarely momentous and more often go something like “I’m grateful I managed to squeeze in one last sandwich before this jar of mayo expires.”
Today, July 2nd, marks the first day of 30 days of gratitude. For all of July we will set out to find ONE thing to be grateful for each day and we will share them via Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Will you join us?? It’s not hard! It doesn’t matter what you find; we just ask that you take a moment to look around and remember that no matter how bad things get there’s always something to be thankful for. It sometimes seems impossible to find gratitude in grief, but it’s there if you look hard enough. Check out our past posts on gratitude and you will see what I mean.
Share your gratitudes with us on Twitter, Facebook and/or Instagram by tagging #WHATSYOURGRATITUDE If you miss a day, that’s okay! We just want you to try.
To get started on the right foot, here are a few things we’re currently grateful for:
We’re grateful to have new photos taken by Matt Roth, a photographer who is far too cool for us.
Like we said, we’re grateful that our new site is up and running. I hope usability proves luxurious for all.
We’re grateful to talk with authors Linda Schreyer and Jo-Ann Lautmen about their upcoming book ‘Tears and Tequila’.
Our interview should appear next week. They will be speaking with several other grief authors and professionals though, so the best thing to do would be to follow the link above and subscribe to the whole series.
We’ll be presenting on one of our favorite topics, Grief and Photography. We’re looking forward to meeting new people there are we’re kind of hoping to run in to a few of you.
I guess that’s enough for now. Don’t forget to subscribe to receive posts straight to your Email inbox and to share your gratitudes with us at #WHATSYOURGRATITUDE
