Weekend Reading Vol. 77

Hi friends. I know this week was heavy. But honestly, they should all feel this heavy, this uncomfortable, and this dire until things are different. I have spent the better part of the last week listening, learning, and trying to be proactive. Going through my kids books and buying them more diverse books and toys. Talking to my husband about things we can do to teach our kids more and ourselves, Having uncomfortable conversations with friends and family. Honestly, I have just been trying to learn. I know I have a ways to go. Even if my entire life I have considered myself and ally, and not a racist I am FAR from perfect. I am trying my hardest, and I am open to learning and listening.

This weekend reading post is ONLY going to consist of posts and articles I have found helpful, or ones that have given me businesses I want to support more.
