October 4, 2010 is World Habitat Day. On this day, Habitat for Humanity will raise awareness of the need for improved shelter, address the worldwide connection between human health and housing, and advocate for neighborhood revitalization in the United States. This year’s theme is “Better City, Better Life.”


Recognizing the need for adequate shelter for all, the United Nations General Assembly has declared the first Monday of October to be World Habitat Day.

Habitat for Humanity is a non-profit, ecumenical Christian organization that was founded in 1976. This organization seeks to eliminate poverty housing and homelessness worldwide and to make decent and affordable shelter a matter of conscience and action.

This blog was originally put up to document my son’s growing-up milestones, all for posterity’s sake. But there are other things to write about, aside from “mommyhood,” that merit my attention, and I’m including them all here. This blog now chronicles my life as a mom and a wife and everything else in between. For collabs, please email tgfiguerres@yahoo.com.
