Today is R U OK? Day, a reminder to initiate those difficult conversations about depression, mental illness, and suicide.

This is a huge issue in our society, and all it takes is a few moments out of your day to stop, listen, and actually talk to someone and make them the most important person in your life at that given point. Perhaps give them a hug too!slothhug

A Little Book of Sloth

“A Little Book of Sloth” by Lucy Cooke.

Cozy up with adorable baby sloths in this irresistible photographic picture book.
Hang around just like a sloth and get to know the delightful residents of the Avarios Sloth Sanctuary in Costa Rica, the world’s largest sloth orphanage. You’ll fall in love with bad-boy Mateo, ooh and ahh over baby Biscuit, and want to wrap your arms around champion cuddle buddy Ubu!
From British filmmaker and sloth expert Lucy Cooke comes a hilarious, heart-melting photographic picture book starring the laziest—and one of the cutest—animals on the planet.


International Sloth Day

Last Saturday was International Sloth Day. A day to reflect on all things slow, steady, sleepy, and yawny. Sloths in fact have a lot of hardship despite their adorably cute faces. Victims of illegal trafficking, road accidents, and destruction of habitat, the life of a wild sloth these days is not good. But there are some organisations out there working tirelessly to protect this beautiful creature. See: http://www.aiunau.org/en/ and http://www.slothsanctuary.com/

Also, I wish I had this to top ALL my desserts with:
