Betsy's Soapbox for the Day.

According to the site Brownielocks.com (their June page), today has three different holidays they like. Here they are, in no particular order.
#1. Crowded Nest Awareness Day
#2. National Peanut Butter Cookie Day
#3. Loving Day, a day celebrating legalized interracial marriage. (The name is from the Loving vs. Virginia court case). I didn't know much about this ruling until the last few years. Find out more at the Loving Day website.
I especially like the last name of the first couple (Loving!) to be legally married and have different races.
It's hard to pick a favorite between these. The best and most important day is probably #3, because it celebrates repealing a situation that wasn't right in the first place.
I do love peanut butter cookies, though people who are allergic probably don't, but hopefully can have almond cookies or something to approximate the nutty-good taste.
Crowded Nest Awareness Day is another one I have not heard of. BUT I do know about a site and page that celebrate this awareness in a big way every day. It is called Gypsy Nesters. This couple celebrates their life without kids by traveling and writing about their free and gypsy-like life.
It is a whole new and original take on being an empty nester. Their description of their website is "The Gypsy Nester - Celebrating Life After Kids - Breaking the Empty Nest Rules."
Here they are on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/gypsynesters.
