In 2009, I was encouraged by my friends to give the 365 photo project a try. I love taking photos, and was excited about participating. The daily posts paint a brief picture of my year and open my eyes to the beauty around me. It is challenging to post a photo daily. I was successful in 2009 and 2010, but fell a few short in 2011. I'll be continuing my quest for daily photos in 2012 and look forward to sharing them here.
One of my goals in retirement is to get a dog. We haven't had one in many years and I would love to have a furry friend to love now that we are empty nesters. I definitely want a shelter dog and a dog that is already an adult. Scott & I went to a Pet Expo today at the Arlington Park Race Track. We wanted to get a feel for what shelters are in our area and what kinds of dogs are available for adoption. Here are a few of the dogs that were at the Expo that tugged at my heartstrings. Our next step will be visiting some of the shelters.
