I know when the Culture Wars are getting me down and I'm wondering what I'm doing, this place and you, the people who make it up, remind me that I must be doing something right to have gathered such a bad ass group of individuals who just want to bake and garden and make stuff and for the most part, mind their own damn business.
I'm not sure I take the time to appreciate you all enough--because it never feels like enough--and although I've been insanely busy lately, just popping my head in and seeing you all interacting makes me smile at the end of a long day.
So thank you for your love and support and kindness. When I grabbed that Post-It in the Starbucks that said "remember why you started" it was to connect to people--and connect people. You here in this community are the reason I started and it's your encouragement that often keeps me going. It's like I'm running a marathon and I have no idea what the race is for or when the end is--but I'm grateful to have you cheering me on, running with me and splashing me with a cold dose of water when I need it.
Loved talking with Jesse Morton about his past as a jihadist propagandist to the current work he's doing now to intervene with jihadist, far-right and far-left extremism and prevent reciprocal radicalization. A fascinating life and human. One of my favorite guests ever. #WalkInsWelcome

Some of you have been asking if we have a list of our promo codes for all the Dumpster Fire & Walk-Ins Welcome sponsors. We made a list and you can find it here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/11ErjcLnuDxjb4FibbeY3yh97UOUyfeqr5xz6zKV57mw/edit?usp=sharing
We figured it would come in handy for holiday shopping and we'll do our best to keep it updated.
Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.
We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.
