Picking a fight with domestic violence.

With the hard work and research of the lovely Kristen Kozlowski in addition to the creativity and design skills of the beautiful Hanna Scott, Bread for the City has officially put together an infographic raising awareness about domestic violence in DC:


This month is all about picking a fight with domestic violence, for me and for Bread for the City.

I mentioned in a previous post that I interviewed a survivor helped by Bread; you can now read more of her story here.

I also recently wrote a guest post about my own experience for Amy’s DV blog.

What’s nice is that I rarely think about it anymore, except in terms of what I can do to prevent it from happening to other people. I think that’s a good place to be. I’m really happy that I have an outlet to use my experience in a positive and productive way.

I’m a lucky girl.

And, yes, in fact, I’ll have you know that I do spend my Saturday nights building blog posts into WordPress, scheduling 6am fundraising emails, and finalizing designs for domestic violence infographics. And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

In other news? Two days in a row, I spent LITERALLY HOURS (roughly 10 minutes) putting together this nutritious breakfast:

Note: Wine is not a part of this well-balanced meal.

Kellogg’s Smart Start is packed with Iron, Vitamin A, Vitamin C — literally everything anyone ever needs to be healthy. BUT I DIDN’T STOP THERE. I chopped up some strawberries, threw them in with some blueberries — two fruits filled with all kinds of nutritious value that I won’t Google right now, but BELIEVE YOU ME, it is indeed nutritious.

Day one? Got halfway through my bowl of cereal before I puked it all out. Lucy just sorta stared, clearly perplexed.

Day two? HELD IT DOWN, holla! So maybe I won’t die. #tinyvictories
