Things What I Love... Websites Edition

Source
There are so many posts buzzing around in my head and have been over the last few days - I have been having a bit of a blogging holiday.  There will be a lot more writing coming up soon, I'm re-insipred and re-energized to write!  To gently ease myself into it, I wanted to share some great websites I've stumbled upon and followed links to.

First, we have Vivian Maier - Her Discovered Work .  I just saw this article on the news (literally minutes ago.) Basically, someone bought a box of undeveloped negatives from an auction house in Chicago and found (upon developing some of the extensive collection) that it contained some STUNNING photographs.  I just looked through some of the website and fell in love with her images and her view of the world.  Well worth a peek if you appreciate a good story and photo.

Next, World Peace Kids is a fabulous blog, written by a 10 year old student and a few of his friends who attend a Montessori School in California.  I love that these students are being proactive and taking action to improve the world they live in.  Love, love, love.

Finally, Baking for Hospice is a wonderful, fabulous, brilliant idea!  Basically, volunteers bake for hospice patients, their families and staff.  It usually happens once a month or so and there are a number of drop off points around the city.  A hospice provides respite care and it is also to give their families a break from being primary care-givers for a little while.  Baked goodies are always appreciated and can usually bring a smile to even the most dour of faces.  You know I'm right.  The first thing I want to do when I'm feeling a bit glum or want a bit of comfort is bake a little something to cheer myself up.  It's a little bit of love, that's tasty too.  I've volunteered and I'm eagerly waiting my first email to do my little part to help.  I think I need an icing set in order to bake to my fullest potential.  Just sayin'.
