Peaks and valleys are beautiful! That's what life is about, right?!
It's #selfcareawarenessmonth and there is no better way to celebrate this than by wearing a @ferrisbuilt t-shirt.

"The final mystery is oneself. When one has weighed the sun in the balance, and measured the steps of the moon, and mapped out the seven heavens star by star, there still remains oneself. Who can calculate the orbit of his own soul?" -Oscar Wilde
It was this quote, that I (Shannon) recall reading a few years ago, when I decided that continuing down this journey of life was worth the effort. Not only was it worth the effort, it was worth everything! Spending this life, experiencing all of the adventures that life presents, with Gerry and Betty White, and those I love, is worth everything!
No matter how many steps it takes, up or down, it's all worth it. I promise! The final mystery is oneself, and that mystery is worth solving, even if it takes the rest of your life to do it, and what an adventurous ride it has and I hope it will continue to be!
That Oscar Wilde really knew his stuff!
New York City – one of our favorite places in the world.
Every time we visit, we stay in lower Manhattan, and overlook the footprints of the Twin Towers. It's one of the most peaceful and serene places to be.
9/11 is always one of those days that we, well, for those of us who are old enough, play the record player of the day's events from 2001, remembering it like it was yesterday. We all know exactly where we were, how we felt, and the way we spent that entire day.
We always do something to remember those who lost their lives on 9/11= all 2,996 of them. We, of course, will #neverforget
We read recently where a group of NYC firefighters were talking about how they want people, not to always reflect on the terrible events that day, but to remember the happy moments about a loved one's life, or someone who died that day. They knew that their fellow firefighters, lifelong friends, would not want to be remembered by the tragic last day, the trauma, but the fun, happy, life that they lived.
So, today, we challenge you to find out something good about the life of one of the 2,996 people who lost their lives on 9/11/01. We're sure whatever you find out about that person will warm your heart and to also keep that person's spirit alive, in a more positive way.
