The Same Flowers

These are the same flowers. The photos are taken only a few weeks apart. The first time I saw the flowers, I thought they were beautiful. I didn’t know they had a surprise inside. As it got colder they changed - but at the same time they didn’t change. They were still the same beautiful flowers. 
It’s OK if we need to change. We can change and still be ourselves, too. There are many ways for us to be beautiful.

Our Pup Loved Puppycake

We love to bake around here, so when we learned about Puppycake, we had to give it a try. Beckham loved his delicious treat. We hear the ice cream is even better! The founder of Puppycake graduated from our high school. We love supporting local businesses and alumni!

A Self-Portrait

 Try this. Take a self-portrait while you're doing something you really love. Reading, running, cooking, gardening, even swimming. 

Capture yourself in that moment of joy. 

Cherish it. 

When you need a moment of self-care, look back on the photo and feel those feelings of contentment, of achievement, of happiness. 

You deserve it.

Happy Birthday to Me!

YAY! It's my birthday! 

Well, it was. 

But I love the celebrate all month, so let's keep it going. 

I wanted to learn more about myself, so I turned to astrology. Here's one assessment of people born on my birthday:

"Being a Virgo born on September xxth, you are perhaps most well known for your sensitivity and reserved nature. While others may call you shy or timid, the reality is that you are simply not a fan of the spotlight. You prefer to live life in the background, where you are disturbing others and they are not disturbing you. This tendency makes it difficult to open up to people about your true thoughts or feelings. You are quite different with family and friends, where you find you can be yourself without effort. When you do open yourself up, you may even be surprised by how emotional of a person you really are."

That doesn't seem right. Maybe astrology isn't that reliable. 

But this feels better. 

"Virgos born on September xx embody the spirit of Virgo perfectionism and criticism. These complex and demanding people can be difficult to live with, but no one can doubt their sincerity. They have a humanitarian streak and always like to make an important contribution to society through their work or life-efforts."

OK take a look at this. I think it's spot on. Astrology is totally useful. 

"People born on September xx can be defined as reliable, perfectionists and honest. Just like a true Virgo they are charming and enthusiastic. They enjoy to be taken in consideration and for their merits to be recognized. They hate extremes and stupidity. They are the pickiest zodiac sign when it comes to choosing the people they surround themselves with. The best environment for those born under this sign is in a personal project, working along side with witty people.

 Positive traits: The natives in this sign are circumspect and precise with most life aspects and although they might seem as risk takers at times, they only adventure in territories that they are aware of. They are some of the best progressives so everyone should take their advice in consideration. They are focused and revolutionary in their path and not everyone can keep up with their pace.

 Negative traits: Virgo needs to learn to be more tolerant and accept that not everyone can be as attentive and orderly as they are. Those born on this day are timid and hard to understand by many people. They also have an innate tendency to over calculate many of their actions. When those around them make mistakes and disappoint them they become harsh and intolerant and find it very hard to forgive."

My 2021 Bird Count

I've identified 153 bird species this year. I've identified 176 bird species total since 2016. I did add in some historical data of birds I saw in years past. I used my photos of these birds as "proof." 

We're at the early stages of fall migration. I hope to spot a few new birds in the coming weeks, along with some old favorites. 

What bird do you hope to see during fall migration?
