What an incredible find! While staying in Kanab, Utah and volunteering at Best Friends Animal Society, we wanted to take a short trip to Lake Powell. I did some research but wasn't finding an ideal location especially since we were traveling with our dog and wanted to make it a quick trip. I visited the Kane ...

Simplify Continued…

The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak. – Hans Hofmann This week I'm continuing to focus on keeping it simple.

Force of Nature

Be like the river. Create your own path. People will doubt you but they don't know what you've been through or your strength. Many have doubted the water but she always finds her way. xo ©Tracy Blowers

National Pet Month – Allen – Best Friends Animal Society

May is National Pet Month so I wanted to sneak this post in before we turn the page on our calendars. 🙂 Every year while volunteering at Best Friends Animal Society, we (of course!) discuss getting another dog or cat. We rescued our girl, Utah, when she was a puppy and this time we wanted to ...
