To brand new little pals, the best of friends, and a freaking amazing woman. Cheers to all the moms out there, but especially @heidiwmu today!

When friends from NYC are in your town, you redefine the meaning of Monday. #latergram
And the light shall overcome the dark. ❤️
My beautiful dunclings! My heart is so full from this family-filled weekend.

Had the chance to hear @betoorourke speak in person this morning. I encourage anyone to attend, listen, and ask your honest questions at any of his numerous town halls.
I loved how he answered to a question on bipartisanship and gave a detailed example of when it was difficult, but he found a partner on the other side to get work done. I appreciated the time he took with people on his exit and his humor and humility with people who wanted to be heard. I’m thankful his example of being PRO the voice of all Texans, however things go. It’s a beautiful thing to witness.
How can you design delightful, user-centered solutions to be sustainable and reduce the plastic in our lives? Vote for our session to be at SXSW (link in bio)—anyone can, but there’s only a few days left! I’ll be moderating a discussion on why, how, and lessons learned from three entrepreneurs: Pam Marcus of Lifefactory, Christian Lane of in.gredients, and David Christian of Evoware, as well as a few things I’ve learned with Borrowed Good. Looking forward to an interactive discussion and sharing personal/profession tips!

I did a thing.

I complained a few weeks ago to my project group about my car key not being easily taken off my keychain for when I go dancing.
My project has been with Austin’s Bloomberg Mayor’s Challenge project submission on using blockchain to help people experiencing homelessness hold onto identity documents to better access vital social services. As such, Sam* has been involved, representing the homeless community. He told me he had an idea...
This Monday he brought me this buckle. I was so touched and impressed with his simple solution.
People who survive on the streets are incredible problem solvers...and so much more.
