The Cutest Seahawks Fan We’ve Ever Seen

Meet Kalee Buetow. She’s three years old and is being called the tiny encyclopedia by my former local news station – Komo 4 News. Even though I claim to be a fan of the Seahawks, myself, there’s no way I could ever name names or positions or numbers. So basically, this girl is already infinitely awesome. To watch the adorable story on her, click here.

Sibling Love

I believe this letter of a brother writing to Santa wishing the kids at school would stop bullying his twin sister Amber went viral last week, but I finally had the chance to watch the story featured on Good Morning America and it nearly brought me to tears. First of all, these kids are just eight years old and the fact that the brother is willing to give up all his Christmas presents and everything else so that his sister can get everything that she wants is the sweetest thing ever. Siblings rule, basically.

Not only did he wish the bullying would stop, but that his sister Amber would be able to meet her favorite band – Big Time Rush. Dreamboats! And yes, that wish came true.

A Collection Part 38

Happy Mid-September everyone!

It’s amazing how quickly this year has flown by. Even though I’m about to embark on my second year out of school, there’s a part of me that still wants to follow suit in that pattern. I started my first job at the start of fall one year ago and now one year later, I’m doing the same thing again. There was something about the new school year that I loved and it wasn’t just that I had a new set of classes, a new wardrobe, or that I was one step closer to starting THIS current life, but it was the idea of starting the year with a fresh slate – wiping everything clean, getting rid of the old and progressing towards the new. That might be one of the reasons why September is considered more of my new year than January. I always like to start Mondays with reflective posts (besides Wedding Mondays!) so here’s A Collection for you :)

Aila Wang Does Fashion Week

Aila Wang has made her appearance at Fashion Week again and as always, she continues to be the best dressed out of anyone attending. Why can’t we all just be Aila? She is easily the best child in the entire world. A free ticket to fashion week…an uncle like Alexander Wang…we wish we could be a part of this.

Cuteness. This girl is going to be gorgeous when she grows up.

Yung Lenox

This post was written by Cameron Deuel

Alive & Well, Seattle’s premier skateshop quietly tucked between Babeland and Honey Hole, currently has one of the most unique art installations in the city. Their “Parental Advisory” display features artwork by Yung Lenox, a second grader who specializes in paying homage to classic hip hop album artwork for such titles as Dr. Dre’s The Chronic, As Nasty As They Wanna Be by 2 Live Crew, and Raekwon’s Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. He also takes on Black Sabbath, Slayer, and Black Flag, as well as a print of Morrissey entitled “Uncle Moz”.

photo cred | The Stranger – Lineout

Based on the video below, you may be led to believe that Lenox is quietly doodling imaginary creations, rather than laboriously taking on intricate rap culture touchstones.

Lenox’s father, Skip Class, is attributed with having a large influence on his son’s artwork.

As Skip said to The World’s Best Ever back in May, “He is my son. I am his dad. If I watch cartoons then he watches cartoons. If I eat pizza then he eats pizza. If I listen to obscure 90′s Memphis rap tapes then he listens to…..you get the idea.”

Chances are pretty great that Lenox’s artistic trajectory is just starting to take off so you would be wise to keep an eye out for his name in the future.

Lenox’s artwork will be up for the rest of September. If you can’t make it out to Alive and Well, check out Yung Lenox’s work here.

Mind Blowing Cover of the Week

I don’t know if this is embarrassing to admit now (it probably is) but 5 years ago (yeah, when I was 18) Jon and Kate + 8 was one of my favorite television shows. The kids were adorable. Jon + Kate were sort of endearing even if I didn’t always agree with their parenting – but seriously what did I know? It’s amazing to me to see how much these kids have grown up! I’m so curious as to how their lives are now without all the cameras and I really hope that at least for the kids’ sake that their parents can be on cordial terms.

A Collection Part 37

I love seeing the difference in A Collection posts between seasons. With summer, there is so much light in these photos, the idea that we have the capacity to do anything, and some weight lifted off our shoulders. I have so much hope for the rest of 2013 and my hope is that it will be better! I hope you all have a lovely weekend and that these photos can do their best to inspire beauty and life into you!

Jay-Z on Blue

Jay-Z gets emotional while talking about his daughter Blue. This just melted my heart. His album Magna Carta Holy Grail will be released July 4th.

Two 6th Graders From Queens Love Heavy Metal

I loved watching this short doc. last night on Malcolm Brickhouse & Jarad Dawkins writing and performing their music to anyone who will listen to them. Heavy metal is definitely a genre that I don’t see very much anymore, but the fact that they are keeping it alive is refreshing. The two of them seem so intelligent (as well as talented.) It’s inspiring to see that these two young boys have some hope for their futures and are passionate about going after their dreams.

Photo of the Day:

Robert Downey Jr. does his best to comfort Iron Man’s biggest fan 1 and 1/2 year old Jaxson Denno when the kid finds out that the man in front of him is not his favorite super hero.

If only Robert had been wearing his costume, maybe things could have been different…
