I took Finn hiking again the other day and for the first time, I could smell the woods through my nose. It made me sit down and really take in nature. I love the quote by Henry David Thoreau that says, "I took a walk in the woods and came out taller than the trees." … Continue reading Take A Hike!
For a long time now, I have had a really hard time losing weight. I blame it on depression taking all of my energy and motivation, but I have to admit, I'm also lazy.

I would say that this year was no different, but I'd be lying - it was worse. When I adopted my dog, Finn, in December 2016, I took him straight to the … Continue reading Finn’s Fight
