I’m really excited to present this month’s feature. “The Duck and the Owl” is the prime example of a blog I love to read: it’s inspirational, poetic, whimsical, inclusive, beautiful, and it’s run by two best friends. This is their story:
Highlights from The Duck and the Owl:
The first time I stumbled upon The Duck and the Owl, I was hooked. Not only is the writing beautiful, but the message and “mission statement” of Kaitlyn and Sarah is to tell human stories and connect us all. Kaitlyn is right when she says that everyone has a story to tell. We’re all of us beautiful and unique in our own ways, and highlighting those differences and our unique beauty is very important. Here’s an excerpt from one of my favorite blog posts:
I’m happiest when I’m creating.
The best way I know how to create is by wielding a pen and inking up a piece of paper. For me, writing is cathartic. But, I often found when I wrote I would do it sporadically and always tell myself, “I wish I wrote more.”
So I decided to.
On January 1, I challenged myself to write every single day. I’ve always admired people who had the discipline of doing something daily. Even more I admire authors who spend hours a day penning their novels. I wanted that discipline.
Kaitlyn and Sarah’s blog is what you need when you’re having a bad day. It’s what you need when you’re having a great day. It’s sort of like reading the advice your best friend would give you, or what your own diary reads like. It’s personal and universal.
