I’m a hugger. I haven’t always been, but since I’ve spent some time in Costa Rica last year, and received countless amazing hugs, something changed. So when I meet friends or even new and amazing people, I will always go for a hug. I […]

I found the cutest little day sleeping creature today, while cleaning up a shed. He was hiding in an otherwise quiet and untouched place and we disturbed his peace. I picked him up, gently, and placed him onto my hand to […]
