  • I've been finding brief moments of comfort in reading and listening and learning over the past few days. And then I saw this beautiful photo on @jetsetterproblems 's feed. It made me happy and reminded me of what @glutenfreegirl said yesterday: that rather than statues we need better books. Books that teach honest and full histories- not just the history that's comfortable and easy to hear for those in power. 📚
  • The 👑 overseeing her bounty of chicken meals. Today we got to drive Georgine to Angel Food East and she told us she was widowed at 45 and had to raise two teenagers, two horses, a dog and a cat on her own. Did she ever want to remarry? "NO! Been there done that." She worked until she was 65. "I retired; everything went computer except me." Time with her is golden. 💛 #georginesays
  • Last night's episode of Seth Meyers included a segment with @amberruffin that was so many layers of important (click the link above for the full video). In the segment she took Seth into her Safe Space room which was a place where she could feel safe and secure to not hear or experience anything that made her feel unsafe. Seth couldn't say the word "Nazi" or try to touch her hair. The walls were filled with beautiful portraits of black women in government, film, TV, music and more. I'm sure it will seem like just a funny moment to some, but that clip cut straight to the core of why these issues (racism, inclusivity, representation and safe spaces) are so important for the home and lifestyle community. The homes and lives we talk about mean different things to different people and what we see in those homes and who lives in them sends a message. We've been spending most of our time for the past few years (and we should have been from the very beginning) examining these issues in relation to home and that will continue to deepen and become more specific as we post this year. We don't live in a world where we can afford to discuss style and home and art and design without considering and examining the way in which all people would feel in those spaces or what their access to them (and representation in them) would be. If you have any topics or issues related to home youd like to see discussed on DS, please feel free to leave those requests below. I'm going to be reaching out to people to contribute their personal stories as well as pieces from our team.
  • I removed the previous post because most major news sources have updated their transcripts to remove the word "us" from Trump's press conference today. Do I feel any differently? No. But I also don't like spreading information that is inaccurate. I think the gist of his speech is still the same and I'm ashamed he's our president and that so many people in America have to live with a president who openly devalues their lives and safety. 📷 by @o_suzannah card by @lafamiliagreen
