Animal/ Zoo stuff

Hello again

Tweet Yes I am still here. It’s been a whirlwind of a year and not so much in a good way, but we have pushed through it. Easily the most stressful and busiest year of my life (even more than my time in the EATM program – which at the time I didn’t think anything(…)

Easter Outtakes

Tweet Well, all my latest attempts at trying to get Ava’s Easter photos taken this year keep getting squashed. The weather has just been awful and I really wanted to take the photos outside.
