{Inspiration} 141...

It's been a little quiet here on the blog lately - in part due to some eye issues that I was having. It seems that my age & my habit of not taking many breaks in the day have taken their toll on my eyes. Nothing to worry about however, I just need to step back a bit & learn to close my peepers every now & then. I took a little break from taking  & editing massive amount of photos & blogging to rejuvenate & learn some new habits. The cool thing, is that through this whole process, I discovered an awesome NW company (out of Portland, OR)  called 141 Eyewear. Their philosophy & design is top notch! 

While searching for a new pair of glasses at Eyes on Fremont  in Seattle (my favorite place to get glasses), I was introduced to this fantastic company. I actually fell in love with the frames (particularly the gorgeous blue inside) before I knew that they give glasses to kids in need. It was a complete bonus! I'm also really tickled that they are based in the NW too! Giving glasses to kids in need is an issue that is so close to my heart. I've been a social worker & worked with a variety of underprivileged populations over the years - plus,  I wore glasses when I was 4 & Sayer got glasses when he was 3.  I get shivers when I see this video & really wanted to share. 

I love my new glasses & knowing they are made by such a wonderful company is icing on the cake. Thanks Eyes on Fremont for the introduction!  Ok, now I had better get back to work...
