Ellen love

I have decided that any time I want to express something that I am passionately outraged over, I am just going to hire Ellen to write a monologue for me!

 I have so many incoherent ramblings that I want to spew about this Chaz controversy (watching him dance will make your children want to change their sex....really?!?!), but Ellen just sums it up in her adorably humorous way, thank you Ellen!

Quotation Wednesday {33rd ed.}

I loved this quote the minute I read it. It can be interpreted and applied in so many different ways; speak up for the underdog, don't believe everything you read, impart power to those without, ..... I love that about a good quote, it can be so easy to personalize and there truly is no wrong interpretation. 
"Until lions have their own historians, tales of hunting will always glorify the hunters."
-African proverb
Personally, I resonate most with the idea of speaking up for those who can not. Advocating for the disenfranchised, be it people, animals, or even ideas that are not recognized, is something I am passionate about so when I read this quote that is what I make of it. What about you?

Random Simple Pleasures {12th ed.}

Simple Pleasure #12 ~ Scenic Dog Walks
I love living in a neighborhood with so many different dog walk routes! It never gets boring that way :) We have a couple of small parks close by so the dogs can run around mid walk. There is also a really big beautiful park within walking distance that has trails and awesome trees that just scream "hey come over here and read under me all day!!" My favorite route takes us by a beautiful view of the downtown St. Paul city skyline and then down a path towards the best park.
click on it, it's even prettier when it's big!

Happy tired dogs and happy exercised me...awesome!

Our awesome neighbor, Roma's art show
It was so fun to go to an art show downtown and see a friend's art displayed!

Farmer's market and drinks with a great friend
There is just something special about old friends, we have shared life experiences since 5th grade and will continue to until we are old ladies!

Everyone needs to experience a good drag show at least once in their lives :)
