When 35-year-old blind Ashley, terrified of humans, and her 33-year-old son arrived here in October of 2016, we thought they had just weeks to live; they were dangerously attached to each other and had myriad health problems. In fact, Ashley's back end gave out when she walked. But expert and exhaustive care (even helping them up when they couldn't stand), exercise, and an abundance of love, likely gave them the best 29 months of their long lives. With their health rapidly declining and falls more frequent, it was time for our final act of love. Goodbye, teachers. Goodbye, old friends. Goodbye, Ashley and Pliers. You are forever in our hearts.
hi! it’s been a short much needed break with a stack of read books, the celebration of maribelles fourth, and my first time public speaking. the Lord has shown us so much these past few weeks, and priorities have been tremendously realigned. I’ll be culling through who I follow for nothing more than my own weaknesses, and will only be peaking on here for the remainder of lent to keep up with long distance friends. here’s a quick picture from this weekend visiting @summmerlace in the snowy catskills. keep exploring and hitting airplane mode, friends. 🌝✨
Location: @homesweethudsonco | This caption is going to be a bit of a rambling rant: two years ago I left behind my full academic scholarship to follow a passion for creating. I say creating because I didn’t consider myself just a photographer. I loved creating photo and video work, music, fashion designs, writing, and bringing business ideas to life. I had a love for traveling and a passion for living life to its fullest. With pressures of growing a business and propelling myself to the next level I lost sight of my love for the craft of creation. I became just a photographer, it’s where I saw the most success and growth. I transitioned from all sorts of creative concepts and travel ideas to purely vacation rental work. Please don’t get my words twisted, I am extremely blessed to be doing what I’m doing and I would never give it up for anything. BUT I have been reflecting hard on my work and my life and realized that to be happy I have to keep doing different things. I have to push myself creatively rather than just work on creating the same work for multiple people. SO, I will STILL be working on vacation rental work as it’s something I’ve grown to love, but you will be seeing some more travel and creative ideas being posted on my feed too. I want to fuse my old passions with my new ones to work simultaneously bringing me happiness and success. Thank you all for the overwhelming support and I can’t wait to show you my creativity✌🏻
Freshies as of last night. Triplets again! Check out the last photo to see what a difference 14 days makes in growth! The runt here is the size of my iPhone and is working out some atrophy in its hind legs. We’re helping it along but send those good vibes.
COMPANIONSHIP is a collaboration with West Kill Brewing and the Dutch. This Basil IPA is herbaceous with layers of strawberry, citrus and pine. Stop by the Dutch tonight for the West Kill Tap Takeover.
“Meet our new #ruggable! We really wanted a light colored rug in the kitchen, but knew it wasn’t the smartest decision unless we found something super durable and easy to clean. Enter ruggable, the perfect rug system that allows you to detach the rug from the base and wash the rug easily. Btw, this isn’t an ad. Just a happy washable rug owner. 😉” —@barndeimona ✨
