No anonymity this time. It's pretty public knowledge at this point that these dreams and memories are a pretty widespread issue, right? So I want to ask everyone who's been having them for help. How do you cope with a life that isn't yours but feels as much yours as your own is? The person I've dreamt about lost someone recently (recently for me, anyway, so I suppose that term is relative) and I find myself grieving the same way I would had I physically lived through it myself. How do you handle that? Has anyone else experienced loss that doesn't necessarily belong to them? I know that there's only more loss to come, thanks to being familiar with this person's story already even without the dreams and memories, and I [...] just want to know that I can face them without feeling like this when they inevitably come. Because if it feels like this now, I don't know how I'll even function through what's to come.

Anyway, thanks in advance for tuning into today's episode of Charlie Proves She's Crazy AF.

Hello, Dunhaven! Most of you know me already, but for those of you that don't, I'm Remington Steele. I work as a pastry chef at Sweet Nothings and I have a very important announcement to make! Elsie has generously allowed me to host a fundraiser out of the bakery this upcoming week, and I think everyone in town will enjoy it. It's pretty sweet if I do say so myself.

Cookies Below the Cut )

Make your sugar cookies a little more guilt-free by knowing that their purchase is going to a good cause! This upcoming Thursday, July 26th, is National All or Nothing Day. In honor of this, 100% of the proceeds from my gourmet glazed sugar cookies are going to charity. You're not reading things wrong.

100% of the proceeds are going to charity!!!

What's the breakdown and who are you supporting by purchasing these tasty, uplifting treats?

50% of every sale will go to the non-profit To Write Love on Her Arms. TWLOHA is a nonprofit movement with the mission to present hope and find help for people who are struggling with depression, self-injury, addiction, and suicide. They have a hand in assisting those in need by providing access to treatment, information, and support.

The other 50% of all sales will go to the Childhood Domestic Violence Association. Their mission is to create and deploy solutions and tools to increase awareness of childhood domestic violence, to empower adults, to serve as a lifeline for those affected, and to educate adults who experienced childhood domestic violence.

If you find yourself not in the mood for cookies (but come on, who doesn't always want cookies??) and still wish to make a donation, when you buy your cake, muffin, chocolates, or other assorted delicacies, you're welcome to make an additional donation to either of the charities above. Just tell us which one you want to support and we'll add your donation to the fund!

Cookies are sold as a minimum of a pair, but will also be packaged in bundles of five and boxes of a dozen. Cookies are available by walk-in or in-town delivery courtesy of a few volunteers for an additional charge. Only a few designs are shown. The messages of all cookies are meant to be uplifting and focused on self-positivity and self-care. Other available designs will include (but are not limited to) "Didn't pretend I was fine when I wasn't," "Remembered to breathe," "Asked for help," and "Took time to Recharge." If you have more design suggestions, I still have a week of baking ahead of me! Mr. Wilkerson has generously donated several pounds of sugar, flour, butter, and eggs to the cause, but if anyone wants to donate more raw materials, they will be taken at the front desk during business hours until end of business on Thursday.

Short and Sweet Breakdown:
Charity Event Thursday July 26th at Sweet Nothings
Buy Cookies, Support Causes

Of all the literature in the world, this tweet speaks to me most.

PS: I am on actual vacation from work for the first time since I finished presenting my dissertation and I can't decide if it's blissful or stressful. I checked my email this morning out of habit and was so displeased with myself.

helloooo. this is kit with emilia lyon/emma swan. she is lucy's little sister, fresh from across the pond. she will be staying more permanently but, for now, she's been in dunhaven since saturday and has probably met all of lucy's friends and acquaintances. i mean, tbh, annie probably had another cookout for the lyons because that's just the kind of person she is. SO if you'd have reason to show up at annie's place over the weekend, you've probably met emilia! she's nice, but a bit awkward. she's a writer who always has ink somewhere on her hands and fingers. she just recently went through a pretty awful breakup so she's more subdued than she usually is but will be bouncing back in time. her bio is in her journal! i figured most people won't know her, anyway, so it's there if you just want to check her out for curiosity's sake ;)

people can feel free to question why the city of dunhaven gave a visitor access to the network, too, LOL. since, you know, she hasn't actually told anyone (i.e. lucy, parents, etc) that she's not going back home.

Just sitting here internally debating how successful, on a scale from Revolutionary War to the Beatles, #LyonsInvadeAmerica2k18 has been. There is no Lyonsmania, yet, but also no one died. If you hear cannons, we're trending toward the wrong end of the scale.

Hey, fam.

Violet and I don't think a big shindig is for us, and neither of us are keen on waiting a whole lot longer, so we're just going to do this thing. If you can't make it to the courthouse, that's okay, I think it's going to be a really quick and casual thing, and I get that not everyone's real flexible with their schedule like I am. But Mom wants a big family dinner afterwards, so maybe we can all go out somewhere.

But anyway, we were thinking a week from today? Bright and early? It opens at 8:30. I can probably move the time around if you can't make it then. I know we'd both like it if our fam could be there. But I get it's a big last minute.
