This week has been nice and short with me being out of town last week Thursday to Monday. But as usual I’m so happy it’s Friday!
I have been holding on to a secret for the last 15 months and finally get to share it today! And my blogging friend Mattie over at Northwest Native and I are announcing our very first link up today too! Hope you all have great weekends, can’t wait to read about your plans in all the link ups! Dave has been working in Alaska on and off for the last year and a half and this past weekend I finally got to go and visit him! We did a mini road trip to Denali National Park and we saw moose, a bear, and sheep!
I have been on lock down for the last 15 months not being able to talk about it but finally this Sunday the documentary is going to premiere on National Geographic at 8pm Eastern Time.
I was able to see a rough edit of it in May when we were in New York but I’m super excited to see the final cut. Sadly my part of the doc didn’t make it but I had the most amazing time and met some lifelong friends. Two of the photos I took while I was there are featured on the website though and that’s pretty cool!
Recently the host of this doc Bryan Christy was on NPR. You can listen to the interview here. There was also an article by USA Today and it’s the main cover story for National Geographic’s magazine out this month (I already picked up my copy!)
It’s an incredibly sad and serious topic about the illegal ivory trading that is going on all over the world. I’d love for you all the check it out and I’d love to hear your thoughts on it! I will try to put together a post next week about my time in Togo (which is Western Africa, it’s right next to Ghana.)
In line with the documentary I was just talking about AOL also recently had a feature with Chelsea Clinton talking about stopping the demand for ivory:
Great article about the ‘rules’ of Instagram:
Lastly Mattie and I want to announce that we are going to be hosting our very first link up together! We came up with some ideas to finish out the year. We hope you will join us at the first weekday of each month. Our first one starts Tuesday September 1st!
