1. Going along with my goal to volunteer at least 3 times per a month, let me tell you about my location of choice to volunteer currently. If you haven’t noticed, I’m kind of a huge dog lover. I volunteer at a local rescue called Gateway Pet Guardians. They feed and save strays from the East St. Louis area which is notorious for being one of the worst places in the country for strays. We have a tiny shelter, but we have approximately 200 dogs in foster homes. Our shelter only hold 8 dogs, but sometimes we have up to 12 if we need to (like during the freeze last week….dogs can’t survive -30* weather). We generally adopt out 30-50 dogs per month, give or take. Fella and I volunteer at the shelter by feeding, walking, and loving on the dogs. It’s super rewarding and I have no regrets about getting involved.
2. Fella and I have actually been doing some wedding planning (shocking, I know). We think we may have a venue and possibly a date. Which is very strange and overwhelming. I really appreciate all the commentary from you guys though! It has been very helpful. I’m not a wedding person, so it is really nice to hear advice. We definitely want something small and beach side. It’s about the people and the joy, not the details. The biggest thing that everything keeps stressing is to not skimp on the photographer. Pictures last a lifetime!
3. I’m off to Phoenix this weekend for work. While work is rarely thrilling, I am excited about getting to enjoy this kind of weather….
And possibly seeing this girl….
