“It is an ad, created by Wacoal Thailand as part of their Beauty Inside campaign. But the short film is about much more than lingerie. We meet a young woman, who is a student and mother to an adorable little girl. She becomes close with her daughter’s teacher, and he asks if the rumors – ideas about how she came to be such a young parent – are true.” - Huffington Post

An Elderly Couple Took The Same Photo Every Season
The saying “a picture is worth a thousand words” for a reason. Explaining how we feel is one way of getting a message across. Another is simply showing each other how we feel. During each season, this couple took a photo together in front of their house. In the resulting series of images below, without saying anything at all, a love story is being told. It’s full of hope, joy, fear and loss, but it’s told in the most unique way. You’ll see what we mean – and then you’ll be moved by it.

duke’s last day

Our furchildren bring us much happiness and unconditional love but there comes a time when we inevitably have to say goodbye. This is Duke’s goodbye. It is the most beautiful yet heart breaking goodbye.

You have been warned, let the water works begin.

I Died Today. By Duke Roberts.

And I ate a lot of hamburgers. We had a party.

And I laughed.

And I thought about how much I’m going to miss it here.

Kristen came to see me. She’s a hoot. She’s my groomer. And my buddy.

While we were waiting for the vet to come, Kristen said we were going for a walk. Then someone said, “How about a play in the water at the splash park down the street?” So off we went!

“I need you to help me watch over my family. Did you hear me? This is all I want!”

We got wet today.

We smiled today.

I relaxed today.

I felt no pain. Even though the tumor grew so big.

I felt the love today.

God, I was lucky. Our time was short. But you both gave me a second chance & we lived it up together. You love when I look at you. I’ll never stop.

Always, Dukey.
