I Made IFB's Links a la Mode!!!

I'm thrilled to be selected as one of IFB's links a la mode this week!  It's the first time I've ever submitted a post and my heart actually jumped when I saw my name on the list.  I'd like to thank the Academy......uh oh!  They're scooting me off the stage and going to commercial.....enjoy all the wonderful fashion bloggers below in this week's round up!  (Blowing kisses!)

It Gets Better

Edited by: The Sunday Best
As we head full on into the "holiday" season, with its unbridled consumerism, endless head-whacking charity pleas, and weird tie-ins, I expected the links list to be inundated with shopping guides. Instead, many dealt with what can only be considered harassment or, terribly, abuse; several looked at blogging as a cathartic experience, others as a rallying cry. I was lucky enough to be raised in an openly affectionate household with two strong female presences in my mother and sister, and this has undoubtedly affected my manner and attitudes as a married man. Since I can't go around changing men and society, no matter how cool that superpower would be, I offer this reminder, in what I believe is the spirit of the season (when that spirit is allowed to express itself unfettered): respect is the bare minimum we owe each other, and the bare minimum we should expect from others. Respect is not necessarily agreement, but it is always acknowledgment. For those who are struggling this season--financially, emotionally, physically--I can only echo the words of Tim Gunn, George Takei, and others when I say, "It gets better." Happy Holidays.
