Ever since the Fourth of July weekend ended, I literally have not had one good nights sleep. I have tried using Melatonin and Magnesium, but haven’t had much luck. My fiance has become accustomed to 2 and 4am emails from me with all sorts of random things and information. Apartments I’ve found for us to look at in San Francisco, or my recent discovery through the black hole of Instagram – Big Love Ball. At least good things are coming out of these sleepless nights, right?
Obviously, initially it was the photos that pulled me in to the Big Love Ball concept. Lifestyle pictures of people with one (or five) Big Love Balls, photos of the ball as actual art in a home, or photos of couples with the ball – there were no limits. Big Love Ball was created by Canadian Designer, Wendy Williams Watt and was first displayed in the window of Grace Studio in Vancouver to “spark dialogue within the community.” How. Cool.
“In a culture ready for lightness and love, Big Love Ball was overwhelmingly embraced. Playful hearts far and wide can now create moments with their very own Big Love Ball. It brings people together to say ‘I am. I’m in. I do.’ Our intention is to send Big Love Balls to places we’ve never been, events we cannot attend and to friends we’ve never met. We want to charm, disarm, honor and i n c l u d e the many people in the world who celebrate LOVE.”
How can you not appreciate the intentions of the company? The simplicity and ability of the ball to be completely open to ones own interpretation is what has totally drawn me in. My fiance obviously felt the same way because his text the next morning said, “How can we use it?”
