So, turns out:
I have a short temper, fuse;
Short road trip made long by tired children (and parents, too-let's be honest), shitty disorders, raging hormones and empty bellies.
We still sat around the table tonight for dinner.
We still laughed.
We still made memories.
We still loved.
We still snuggled.
They sleep happily, comfortably and safely.
Life is grand.
I will be in twilight bliss soon enough, my loves.
Also "saved" and "foraged" from the park 😂 These mini-daisies grew and bloomed after the meadow was cut down. I was a few days late going round to check on them, and then I started spotting their joy at grass level. So it followed that some went home with me, where they shined bright on my nightstand for weeks 🌼 I love it when Mother Nature does it's thang despite our grooming/ taming efforts...
Galavanter @vanessafraser ”I’m a galavanter because the mountains pull me like nothing else. It’s a feeling I could never even attempt to explain. The mountains are where I feel the most at home and my most authentic self.
I go to the mountains to reset, recharge and re-centre. The place where I think the clearest, breathe the deepest, laugh the hardest, smile the largest and feel the most alive. A place to to connect with friends while disconnecting from my hectic city life. A place where I’m challenged physically, mentally and emotionally. A place that gives me confidence while at the same time humility.
I’ve discovered so much about myself, who I want to be but I’m also have been reminded who I’ve always been. The mountains have given me such a sense of purpose and fulfillment that I will forever be grateful for.” 📷 @justinrauchphoto

Sometimes I follow people on Instagram who are truly amazing humans. So although I don't know Bri and Keith Madia, I do follow them on Instagram @briannamadia and am inspired by their love and devotion to their two gorgeous, hilarious, free-spirited, desert-loving pups Dagwood and Bucket. If you know me, you know I'm first and foremost an insane animal lover, so watching their dogs' antics has been a joy. There's nothing better than an animal running free, in my opinion, and it seems as though Bri and Keith have done everything in their power to give that life of freedom and joy to their two pups. Bri posted yesterday that Dagwood was hit by a car and is in a dire situation. My heart immediately broke for them. Their family set up a GoFundMe in order to help pay for Dagwood's medical bills which will be extensive. So far they are holding vigil and he has survived the night at the emergency vet in Oregon, but he may lose one of his beloved legs among other life altering injuries. So why did I feel compelled to donate to these two strangers that I don't know at all who live with their two magical pups in their monster truck/van named 'Bertha' on the other side of the country? What's it to me? First of all, I am inspired by any person who is living their best life, especially when it means giving up traditional comforts in order to live your dreams. Secondly, I'm a huge animal lover, and I feel drawn to anyone who loves and cares for their pets like I do for my own. So no, I don't actually know them. But I do know them. Because they are me. And they are every animal lover out there. If you're an animal lover, you know that there is this weird, lovely circle of support - a special 'club' - for anyone who has fur babies, and we all feel it deep within our souls when those fur babies are in trouble. It's a real thing. And that's why I felt compelled to help. If you're feeling generous, too, I'm very positive that they would appreciate any ounce of support coming their way.
