Eat, Drink, and Make Resolutions

Another year gone and I’m hours away from another one. Some people have been quick to start making resolutions, while others are looking back on their 2014 ones and are either cheering or kicking themselves.

I will admit that I was never great at making resolutions that were incredible or worthy of keeping. Last year this time, I told myself that I wanted to make the best of 2014, good and bad, successes and failures. How did I do?

Worth a Thousand Words to Rescue

For many of my readers who know me, I am a big advocate for rescuing animals from shelters or through rescue groups. I recently came across this story about a photographer who started photographing her own dogs as a personal project, then she turned it into a larger scale series featuring rescued dogs needing homes.

She photographs the dogs looking up at her, surrounded by various decorations streaming or hanging around them. Kind of hard to not want to reach out and hug the sweethearts photographed, right?
