It’s so sad when your kids get sick, but the extra snuggle time is loved! 💕 We’ve been helping 3 sick littles the past couple of days. 😟 Hope it passes soon!!⠀

Words by me
Companion of mankind since the beginning
Always stood tall next to their master
Through thick and thin
Lead the way
Cautioned their humans
Through the toughest times
Always made sure that nothing ill could ever touch their master
Just being close to humans is enough for them
They don't participate in the barter of love
They don't care what you give them in return
If they have decided to love you
They'll do it till their last breath!
Scratch their head once
And get unlimited supply of their lolling smile
A smile so powerful that it can take away any pain.
These furry angels
Were sent on earth
To keep our faith intact
In the journey

Love is no longer what it used to be in the '70s. The love they describe in the songs that we like. We were looking for Old School Love. Someone who'd write letters. Someone who'd wait for answers for days and have a smile on face as soon as the postmaster was in sight. Someone who'd meet during the summer vacations.
So we decided one day. To sneak out into the village near our town. On that old bicycle of yours that creaked when you wheeled. We decided the date on one of our letter conversations.
When you saw me in my orange floral dress, your eyes lit up because you liked seeing me in orange. You said it made me look like your own sun, with an even brighter smile. And I'd blushed and sneaked in closer in your arms. You were in your black shirt hanging lose with messy hairs because I know you don't care how you look but all I cared for were your grey eyes that looked deeper when they talked to me.
And I give you my hand, so that you can kiss and then you took me to the bicycle and I sat in the front, with you peddling away and we sang our songs...
We reach to our spot where we'd first met accidentally when I was picking some wildflowers to make a tiara and you were trying to mend this bicycle. And our eyes had met and we had smiled after a long stare.
So we went behind that worn out wall. Because that's our spot. Because that's how our souls are, belonging to the days of past, when love was more than a text message, when love was done the right way, the old school way.
"Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts." —Rachel Carson
We did a bit of earth contemplating today. We did a bit of rock collecting. We found frogs, picked flowers and held snakes. You know, all of the important things.

Istanbul [Part 3]
Top three favorite spots: Hagia Sofia, Dolmabahce Palace, and the hamam.
The Hagia Sofia was breathtakingly beautiful and massive. Large "signs" written for Mohammed, Allah, Usman Ali, etc. alongside images of the Virgin Mary, Jesus, and other Christian images invoked a peaceful combination of two of the world's largest religions.
At one point in time it was a church. Constantinople (Istanbul) was then conquered and the Sultan turned the church into a mosque. However, it was too expensive to take off all the mosaics do they just plastered over the Christian images,thus preserving it for centuries.
The Dolmabahce Palace was extremely grandiose! Unfortunately, pictures weren't allowed inside, so a picture of the gate outside will have to suffice. Inside were chandeliers galore, fine carpets, and massive "ballrooms", all right along the Bosphorus River.
Ahhh, the hamam! After walking so many miles every day, being able to be vigorously scrubbed and then a bubble massage was heavenly. A bit different being pretty naked the entire time with other men also being scrubbed with bubbles, but hey, when in Rome, er, Istanbul! Felt like a Sultan!

BUSY DAY! The weather was GORGEOUS and we are happy we got to spend it all outside. Our Back Alley crew monkeyed around 😉, then our Run Club crushed our biggest run yet. We headed to Art In Our Park and handed out cold water which was very much appreciated given the hot☀️ We sat and listened to the Uber talented @foolstongue on the Main Stage (also...anyone looking for guitar lessons, I highly recommend @jefframseymusic 👍🏼) and then thoroughly enjoyed listening to “Broken Records” on the emerging artists stage (one of the band members is the son of our very own @ladineim). Pretty much a perfect day! Thank you to all the organizers and volunteers for all their hard work once again - a huge success that the community is grateful for!
Can you believe people line up for some guy to take their picture in front of the Welcome to Vegas sign? We just sneaked to the side and snaped a couple of pictures and I think they turned out better than if they were taken from the front. Sometimes all you need is another angle.
Pouvez-vous croire que les gens font la file pour qu'un inconu prenne leur photo devant le signe Welcome to Vegas? Nous nous sommes simplement glissées sur le côté pour prendre quelques clichés et je crois qu'au final les photos sont meilleures que si elles avaient été prises d'en avant. Parfois il faut seulement chercher un autre angle.

With summer finally coming to an end, fall always brings calmer times and great chances to get out and explore. A quick ferry ride away, and adventure is at your doorstep. #explorelocal#bcferries

I can say that with our friendship, we have that. There is no words that could be eloquent or adequate enough to express our friendship, but I am going to attempt. You are my best friend, my person. It’s not often in life you can say that you have met someone who completely changed your life. But standing here tonight, I can. The day I met you, I knew we would be friends for the rest of our lives. We will be the little old ladies harassing people in the nursing home, probably still playing cards against humanity. When we met, I never realized I was getting more than just a friend. I got a secret keeper, a calming voice in the storm. Someone who keeps me grounded, someone who reminds me to have faith in my darkest moments. Someone who encourages me when I’m doubting myself. You are the person who talks sense into me. Makes me laugh until I’m crying. You know precisely what to say to make things better. You are so much more than my best friend, you are my sister. My family. You're my person, you will always be my person.

I love how calm this picture seems 🤔 but in reality I asked the kids to stop throwing stones about 100 times 🙄😩🤣 Nevertheless, this is a beautiful spot to watch the sunset sky transform in front of your eyes 💫 from blue to pink and purple hues ✨💜💙
