blueberry

blueberry 018


It's April 1st, are you lighting it up blue with me?! I was very excited when the weather person (filling in for Al) on the Today show went over to some other girls that were supporting Autism Speaks today on the plaza. It's such a great charity that does a lot for promoting autism awareness, helping fund research, and helping families with children with autism. I have more informaiton on how you can get involved on my Autism Awareness page. I'm also fund raising, the price of a coffee can go a long way!

Did you know that you have a 1 in 90 chance of having an autistic child? Did you know that rises to 1 in 70 boys? It's astonishing that we still are so clueless as to the cause/cure. These kids stand the best chance with early intervention with proven therapeutic techniques (Applied Behavioral Analysis - ABA - is the gold standard). I could go on and on, since I worked in the field for just over 3 years, but I'll stop with this - be an advocate for your own kids. If you think something isn't quite right with their behavioral or social development, advocate for early intervention testing. And be inclusive :) Two of my most favorite people in the world have Autism. My life wouldn't be the same with out these little boys and their families in it!

On to the outfit, (that was a clumsy segue) this is one of my favorite summertime looks... minus the scarf and tights of course! I just love this flannel top. I originally bought it for winter. I wore it the first time over leggins and boots (I wish I have been blogging my outfits back then - it was a good one!) and since I have always worn it in warmer weather. I think it's because it's hard to pair it with a sweater. (Maybe that just means I need a new sweater!?) Women always comment that they like this top, my guy friend aren't really fussed. Isn't it funny that men and women can have such polar opinions to what looks good/is fashionable? Good thing I dress for me! What do you think, should we (as women) dress for the taste of men, other women, or ourselves?
