In the Wilds of the Web 5

So I recently realized that I cannot recall the last time I made one of these posts, and that it was high time I changed that.
This inked goddess is Giulietta Carrelli, badass founder of our “place” this morning, Trouble Coffee & Coconut Club in San Francisco. I would begin to tell you her heartbreaking yet profoundly inspiring story but I certainly couldn’t come close to doing it any justice. I encourage you to trace her eclectic journey here or if you’re not much of a reader, listen to the story of “Trouble” here in Act 3 of This American Life.
Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co constantly keeps me fawning over their entire product line. Lately I’ve been jonesing these industrial Radar Sconces. I would like one in every color in every room of my apartment.
Finally, I found this furry football fan all too cute and all too appropriate for this fall season not to share! Check him out and other cute critters right here.

    So glad you shared Giulietta Carrelli’s story! I’d heard it a while back on This American Life and was completely blown away — not just by her inspiring story but also by her unique take on how a community can treat mental illness. Just fascinating. Anyway, couldn’t see this without saying yay! :)

      So glad you’re familiar with her, Diana. :) I also heard her story awhile back but it has stuck with me ever since. It reminds me how important it is to let other people in and ask for help in life when it is needed. You can’t always do it alone.

    I love TAL and this was one of my favorite stories and it seems so strange to put a face to story. But wow, totally what I would imagine.

      I listened to her story awhile ago when it aired and immediately wanted to know all there was to know about Carrelli and her endeavors.
