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 ...

Baker Campground – Twin Cities – Minnesota

It's a rainy day so I'm dreaming of camping, looking at photos from past trips and planning new ones. I love going through old pictures and reminiscing.

HYPER Thyroid – A New Journey

Gratitude

To speak gratitude is courteous and pleasant, to enact gratitude is generous and noble, but to live gratitude is to touch heaven. - Johannes A. Gaertner

fri-yay!
