Goodbye August

Starting this post off with a gratuitous photo set of myself.

Almost Autumn

August 24, 2017


Summer will always be the number one season in my heart. Always.

I get to visit the beach, I get to celebrate my birthday, I get to soak up some sun, I get to take walks later in the evening since the daylight lasts longer, I get to eat good barbecue,  I get to try all the new rosé that has debuted for the season... Summer has historically been the personal start of a 'new year' for me - partly because it's when I turn another year older, but also because I always enter fall feeling refreshed and changed in some way.

Change is in the air
This past month I've been feeling so grateful - more than usual - for everything in my life, good and bad, the struggles and the victories (there have been much of both). I got into my car to drive to work last week and thought thank you, God, for this life of mine. It's not necessarily a new feeling, but it's been more frequent than usual which makes it feel like a change.

I had the chance to volunteer at Paws Atlanta last week, and even though it was hot and uncomfortable and the mosquitoes feasted on my arms for lunch, I had thee best time hanging out with the pups.

Paws is one oldest and last remaining no-kill shelters in the state of Georgia. They get dogs and cats dropped at their front door every day, and no matter the cost, they provide food, shelter and veterinary care for every pet that comes through their door.
