Something Good

Blogging from the Heart with Susannah Conway

I signed up for this ecourse yesterday. “This six-week course…includes in-depth lessons, writing prompts, interviews with inspiring bloggers and absolutely everything I know about crafting a blog that truly reflects who you are.” There are still a few spots left, and if you are a blogger with a heart, I’d say to you: do not miss this opportunity.

The Cognitive Canine, and Trainer Sarah Stremming

I was really struggling this weekend with a new behavior Sam has developed. The Border Collie in him confounds and confuses me, always has, and sometimes it even breaks my heart a little, (I do not want to fail him).

Luckily for me, when I get to this place where I am feeling defeated and my confidence is shaken, I can call on my friend Sarah Stremming, the owner and trainer for The Cognitive Canine (she knows dogs, and she knows Border Collies). Even if you aren’t lucky enough to have her help you in person/dog, you can benefit from her training blog.

99 Tiny Stories to Make You Think, Smile and Cry from Mark and Angel Hack Life

These stories reminded me how strange and wonderful life can be. “Sometimes the most random everyday encounters force us to stop and rethink the truths and perceptions we have ingrained in our minds. These encounters are educationally priceless. They spawn moments of deep thought and self-reflection that challenge the status quo and help us evolve as sensible individuals…These are simple, powerful, real life stories written by the people who lived them.”

Quote from Kate Courageous

To love yourself completely is an act of courage, (Your Courageous Life).

Amsterdam

You might not already know this about me, but I am utterly in love with Amsterdam. Eric and I went for a week 10 years ago, and haven’t been back, but someday we will, and stay for much much longer. Two design blogs put up posts this week that reminded me of that beautiful place, decor8 “Amsterdam + Highlights From My Next Book” and on sf girl by bay “Anthology in Amsterdam.”

Roxie, my friends’ new pup.

Seriously, if you don’t think she’s cute, you are broken.

Baby Bunnies

Other than Roxie, there’s almost nothing cuter than baby bunnies. Don’t believe me? Look at these.
