The Joys of January // Looking Ahead, Issue 1 (VII)

 It's 2018!

*inhales happily* A year of fresh starts. 2017 was pretty good - two new additions to our family, Mia and Kit!
I know this is a 'Looking Ahead', but I want to look back over 2017 briefly and choose my favorite post from each month!

January - The Ice Princess Probably one of my favorite photoshoots EVER.
February - I STILL Love AG And I'm Proud of That
Wow. This one got a LOT of views... and went pretty crazy.
March - Spending a Day in Space
 I loved making this: the foil and improvised spacesuit, the moonsand, the foil landing pad.... the flag... EVERYTHING WAS SO FUN!
April - 6 Tips on How to Be a Doll Celebrity XD XD This one was one of my pet projects. It's like, a sarcastic poke of fun at celebrity stuff.... May - Mia and Star Another photoshoot. How original... June - Adventure in the Attic
This was so much fun to do - it took like, two hours in 100+ degree summer attic weather. *swelters at thought* But it was TOTALLY worth it. :) July - Triple…

Save Our Shelter: The Beginning, Part 1

Save Our Shelter - Part 1

I walked quickly backwards, talking a mile-a-minute.
"I am so excited to take you guys there!" I was talking of course, to Katie and Madi, who had joined me on my trip to the animal shelter, Dare 2 Care.
Madi laughed, her camera swinging around her neck.
"I'm excited to come with you!" Katie nodded in agreement, turning a cartwheel.
A little while later, I led them into the grassy yard of the animal shelter, where they were greeted by animals of all shapes, sizes, and colors. It was mainly a huge place for them to play, but there were a couple benches here and there.
Madi and Katie looked around eagerly as I pointed to several pets and told their stories.
"They're so a-dor-a-ble!" Katie exclaimed.
"I know, right?!" I giggled.
I rubbed the head of the dog that bounded up to me and jumped around, barking eagerly and wagging its tail happily.
"Hey there, Rolo," I greeted him, a huge grin on my face. I loved being at the shelter, because it always made me so happy.
"Rolo?" Madi giggled, snapping a picture. "As in, the chocolate?"
"Yes, and no," I explained, laughing with her. "He's always getting all dirty from rolling in the mud, but he looks like a delightful piece of chocolate so..."
Katie plopped down beside some other dogs, which met her with curiosity before bounding around her begging her to play.
Soon, the three of us found our places, with Madi snapping pictures of the adorable animals as often as she could.

Katie raced around the grassy yard, chasing and being chased by playful pups.
I sat down on one of the nearby park benches, playing with Rolo and snuggling with other pets.
After about an hour, I gathered my sisters to go. Madi insisted on a selfie.
"I am so glad we came!" Katie exclaimed. "Let's do it again!"
"Yes, I got a ton of fantastic shots," Madi chimed in. "I can't wait to come again!"

I was surprised and startled by a hand on my shoulder that didn't belong to any of my sisters.
"I'm afraid you won't be able to for to much longer."
Even though I was stunned, I still remembered to introduce my sisters.
"Katie, Madi, this is Ashlynne Worthington. She's the director of Dare 2 Care. Ashlynne, these are my adopted sisters Katie and Madi."
It was there that Katie interrupted me.
"Why did you say that, Miss Worthington?" Katie asked impudently.
"Call me Ashlynne," the other girl said. "I said that... because the shelter is closing."
