5 Random Friday Finds

Find No. 1


I found this lovely postcard in my mailbox this week from my dear friend Viv. Even though I didn't participate in the fall postcard swap she still sent me a postcard. That meant a lot to me.

Find No. 2


A new dog bed makes for a happy and sleepy dog.

Find No. 3


A piece of cheese works wonders to get your dogs to pose for you.

Find No. 4


Feeling courageous this week after starting Brene' Brown's new e-course, The Gifts of Imperfection, I did the required homework of writing this on my hand, taking my picture and posting it as my FB profile picture. You never know who you will impact when you do brave things like this.

Find No. 5


Glen and I are away for the weekend. We went north about 3 hours from our house to Traverse City. This picture is at a former state mental hospital in Traverse City. I have always wanted to explore and photograph there, but it seems every time we are there it is raining. I thought this time would be a bust as well as, since we drove through a snow storm on our way there. Once we got there though no snow and the sun was starting to come out. There will be more photos and a post coming on this amazing place.

  11. The natural textures in that last photo are beautiful! And we all would do well to embrace the delicious imperfections within ourselves. :-) I love your FB post shot too. But...the two Goldens are my favorite. Best. Breed Ever.
