Let’s all take a moment to slow down and live in the present this weekend. It can be easy, in January especially, to get caught up in the excitement of meeting new goals and taking on new challenges, but all of that hustle and bustle can take us away from what really matters in life.

This little guy was adopted from Toronto Animal Services – North and photographed by Posh Pets Photography (thank you Karen!) His happy-go-lucky personality and love of tearing around like a maniac makes him a prime example of how one should relish every moment.

Let’s look to our dogs and follow their joyful example of enjoying the simple things. I will be taking Rory on nice long walks and runs in the park this weekend while scribbling in a little notebook. What will you be doing? xo
