Falling in love with yourself first doesn’t make you vain or selfish, it makes you indestructible.

The strongest actions for a woman is to love herself, be herself and shine among those who never believed she could.

So Little Humans is coming out in almost two months, and the first hardcopy has just arrived! It is awesome. Your child is guaranteed to giggle, point, and cheer. And if test readings are any indication, there is a 38.53% chance you will cry. It comes out October 7th— very excited about it. You can preorder now and receive it on day of publish:
AMAZON: http://amzn.to/WPMamUBARNES AND NOBLE: http://bit.ly/1eawvWEINDIEBOUND: http://bit.ly/1zA0Sw6
"Brandon," they say to me, "Since you are promoting the children’s book, can you remind everyone about the adult book?" Of course I will. Aesthetically arranged beneath Little Humans, you can see the adult book, appropriately titled Humans of New York, which after nine months is still hanging onto the NYT Bestseller’s list. Most likely because it’s a "publishing phenomenon" (New York Times) that also happens to be "visually arresting and disarmingly deep." (The Atlantic). If you so desire, you can order that here:

To the right of Little Humans, you can find Susie, who has asked me, while we are promoting things, to remind everyone that she is on a lifelong mission to help place orphaned senior dogs in loving homes. You can find her page here: Susie’s Senior Dogs.
And finally, my cactus, Carl, has asked me, since we’re already promoting things, if I could advertise his fan page: Carl The Cactus. He is hoping to get a certain number of likes before he launches his GoFundMe campaign.

Do you like tomatoes? Then I’ve got a nice little recipe for you.
The above is a photo collage of the stuffed tomatoes I made for dinner the other night and they were SO GOOD and I wanted to share. 
I based this off a recipe I saw in this month’s issue of Martha Stewart’s Living. (Which I left on an airplane so I went off what I remember…) 
Ingredients:
Tomatoes (I used two big yellow guys -unsure of the exact variety).
Kernels from one ear of sweet corn.
Half a package of chopped frozen spinach.
Olive Oil
Garlic (I think I used almost an entire clove)
Red pepper flakes (to taste)
Bread crumbs (I have no idea how much I used. I just stopped pour them in when it seemed like a good consistency. HELPFUL!)
Two pieces of mozzarella cheese sliced from the ball.
How to:
Cut the top your tomatoes and scoop the flesh (eww) and seeds into a bowl. 
Heat oil oil and add the garlic and red pepper flakes.
Add corn, spinach, and tomato guts to oil. Cook until the tomato liquid has been reduced (maybe about 4ish minutes? I got distracted by Patrick throwing his dinner on the floor.)
Remove veggie mixture from heat and mix with breadcrumbs.
Stuff this into the tomatoes.
Top each tomato with a slice of mozzarella.
Put under the broiler until the cheese is brown and bubbly.
ENJOY!

Sounds delicious!

so this is cool

I was thinking about this old tumblr guy I used to follow. He runs around a lot and is a bit of a douche but he gives very good running advice that’s why I followed him. He did get a little overbearing so I decided to unfollow him and just look for other runners to follow. I think I got a good group. 

Anyway, back to the guy, I was thinking about him last night (I unfollowed late last year, around November), and was just browsing through links today when tumblr suggested I follow a guy with a strange URL. It didn’t look familiar at all. Turns out it was the guy I unfollowed before and he changed his URL! He seemed to have mellowed down in his entries. The ego seemed to have gone down by a lot and he seemed ok. I didn’t bother following him anymore, though. I thought it’s ok to know that he’s alright now. 

Funny how some of the thoughts in our head just appear to us. I’ve been having a lot of those lately, uncanny coincidences of thinking one random person then seeing him the next moment or day or week. Better be careful of who and what I think then, because the Universe seems to be listening now and actually delivering! 

We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are … Or we can decide for ourselves.
