Happy Pride Month to all of my fellow LGBTQ+ folks, and all of our lovely allies! Summer has hit Nova Scotia hard and fast, the last couple of days were upwards of 30C (that’s 86F for my American friends) and I got to enjoy my first swim of the season yesterday in a local lake. Soooo nice. And with summer comes Pride Month, aka my excuse to cover myself and my website in even more rainbows than usual. I was at Michaels the other day and they had a little display of Pride merch – part of me went “oh look another corporation capitalizing on Pride” and the other part went “OOH SHINY RAINBOWS” and then I bought a Pride flag and some Pride sunglasses. I have no shame. 🙂
The flag is now chilling on my desk next to my flamingo and unicorn floaties, my Buffy & Brienne figures, my crochet Lu-La from Shaun the Sheep (I’m a bit obsessed with her), and my new reversible rainbow Octopus plushie from Tee Turtle. By the way, if you don’t know Tee Turtle – they have the cutest shirts EVER, I adore them and own several. I highly recommend them. They have various licensed nerdy shirts, plus lots of crafter shirts, Pride shirts, and cute animal shirts for every mood.
And if you’re wondering, the painting was done by my Mom as a Christmas present. She knows I love flamingos, so she decided to paint a flamingo in front of the view near their house on the West Coast of Canada to remind me of home. Awww. <3 I laughed for about five minutes straight when I unwrapped it. Best gift ever!
