This is @capt.grace. Detroit girl. Sailor chick. Tall ship captian. @americansailingassociation and @ltd_sailing_grenada instructor. She and her bestie @emilygazall reached out to @katiegirllllll and I years back because they had a dream of sailing @greatloopers. Funny thing is, these girls knew their shit. They didn’t need any help. Just a little boost from two chicks who somehow made it around with very little prior knowledge. Emily and Grace did the Great Loop in one year and a life changer it was – just as it was for Katie and I. Last night @capt.grace took us out on this beautiful tall ship in Traverse Bay. I learned about throats, belaying pins, and rat nests. She is ALSO participating in this years #sharethesailcroatia running one of the boats for @dreamyachtcharter. Yeah, she’s awesome. #tallshipsailing #tallships #traversebaycruising #traversebaysailing #traversebaytallship #latsandatts #latitudesandattitudes #womenatthehelm #womensailing #womenwhosail

Eat more plants, heal our planet! Choosing more foods from organic, plant sources–such as fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, oils, whole grains, legumes, and beans—is as good for the planet as it is for our health. Farmed meat takes tons of water, land and energy to raise, and is responsible for up to 78% of food-related greenhouse-gas emissions. Join @BurtsBees & me, in making a #changefornature pledge–for every person who pledges to make one small change to reduce their impact on the planet, Burt's Bees is donating $10 to the National Geographic Society. Transitioning to a mostly plant-based diet is easier than you'd imagine with all the great new plant-based options in stores & restaurants, and endless recipes online. And once the health benefits of eating diverse plant-foods kick in, you won't even miss meat & dairy! Earth and Animals rejoice too! The urgency is real for us all to make individual changes to ensure that our children and generations to come will have a healthy planet to live on, so I'm stoked to be working with @burtsbees today to promote individual changes because all those small changes add up to BIG positive impacts! Take the pledge at the link in @burtsbees bio! ✌🏽🥦 #changefornature #fridaysforfuture
