So macie saw a large log ahead of us and saw it as a threat, growling and looking at me for backup she went over telling it off all the way, only to find it was just a chunk of wood! her face as she looked at me was a picture 😝🤣🤣🤣🤣😁🤗🐶🐕😍 #dogwalker#growling#whatsthat#cutedogs#sobrave
We asked our 10 year old son, “who is the woman you admire most?” without a moment of hesitation, he said, “harriet tubman!” we couldn’t agree more.
harriet tubman marks our 18th woman we admire! “mom, she worked so hard for her own independence and did you know that she fled slavery from a plantation in maryland to freedom in pennsylvania. she came back to free her whole family and hundreds of other enslaved people through the underground railroad. she came back 17 times!!! seventeen times!”
born in a family of enslaved people, she was beaten and sold. when she was 13, an overseer threw a 2 pound weight at a s***e to punish him and it accidentally hit her in the head. she suffered from migraines for the rest of her life and always wore a scarf around her head to cover the injury. her desire to be free gave her a fierce determination to escape and to help free others.
her favorite hymn was “swing low sweet chariot.” she sang this song on her many trips back and forth to free her people. 🎶
during the civil war, tubman also worked as a spy, working alongside the union army. she aided the army in an effort to help free 750 more enslaved people.
harriet tubman also worked for women’s suffrage alongside susan b. anthony, wow! she was fearless.
because she freed slaves, harriet became known as “moses” to the slaveholders and a $40,000 reward was offered for her capture. she was never captured. she lived until the age of 93.
how can you be brave today?! 🌈
Guess what wonderful families? with your support during #crazysockweek we raised $1241.40!
cystic fibrosis is a charity close to our hearts affecting several families @tinytoesballet
these pictures show you a sneak peek into where some of your money goes.
gorgeous rebecca who has #cysticfibrosis has been fighting a nasty bug in her lungs for the last 2.5 years.
she went into hospital for 24 days to receive a brand new treatment. she was the first person in australia to have this treatment!
the stickers on her chart represent every treatment she had while in hospital - 73!
she was extremely brave and we are so proud of her and send her and her mum and family so much love . (the image of words is from cf team kids westmead)
I received a visit from the lovely @thefattingtonfrisk today. we went on a hike, ate some amazing thai food, watched a makeup disaster unfold on my face and the kid's hands, and took some pictures. such a nice time! we talked about f*t fashion and @fatgirlshiking and a bunch of other things. who wants to do a midwestern f*t cabin weekend?! we think it'd be an amazing community-building getaway.
When you have the opportunity to support the people in your life, take it. i’m so glad i was able to come support my business partner and good friend, erin troia, this evening. the stories are incredible and these people are #sobrave for sharing.
