when modwriter sent me this pic of declan, i could only think of how much we will depend on this next generation for so many things in the future.    
i was curious about BSA, and as it turns out, their mission is “to help build the future leaders of this country by combining educational activities and lifelong values with fun. the BSA believes that helping youth is a key to building a more conscientious, responsible, and productive society.”

loKal shoes
buying american made shoes has been a struggle.
american apparel has been ramping up their ‘made in america’ shoe assortment.
i decided to buy this pair of shoes MIUSA, even though i wasn’t completely in love. once i wore my new shoes, something happened: i felt proud to own them and they grew on me.  i hope to make my fall shoe purchase a MIUSA one too.
