Welcome to our channel! I am a blind mom of two who loves to share inspiration, joy, creativity, and the reality of growth through the struggle, and through supporting one another. I share lifestyle, craft/DIY, mom-life, disability-awareness, disability-etiquette, and guide dog/service dog related content, videos, and vlogs. I would love to have you join me on this journey, along with my guide dog, Figaro, and my family. Please subscribe to our channel, and if you enjoy this video, give it a “thumbs-up” which helps it reach others who may connect with our content! Thanks for joining us!!
Join our family (missing Katie, who is with her dad right now), for a day at an area mall and Figgy and I at The Container Store (my FAVORITE and a total guilty pleasure!). You’ll see my hubs, Devin, youngest daughter, Evie, and of course, my guide dog, Figaro, as we navigate a mall we don’t usually visit, and take more escalators in one day than we typically take in a month! It seems a LOT of malls are going to a primarily escalator-based environment, with minimal elevators. We can navigate this, but for us, and for many others with disabilities, elevators can be far more convenient, and often times crucial to navigating multiple levels of a shopping center. You don’t see his rear feet in many frames, but Figaro had his rear Ruffwear GripTrex boots on for safety on the escalators for the duration of this shopping trip since we encountered SO MANY escalators.
For any who are new to our channel or who do not follow our story on Instagram, at one point in the video Evie refers to “Llama”. We four sheets and pillowcases with llamas all over them. Llama is a Guide Dogs for the Blind Puppy in Training being raised by a close friend of ours, and the woman who raised my first guide dog, Picassa. Overtime Evie sees something with llamas she says we should send it to Llama!
