A Busy August

I’ve been having a hectic month filled with traveling, seeing family and friends, and some really great weekends locally and away. Relaxing up north at Becky’s beautiful place on Bear Lake . . .

Visited my Mom in Florida, spent some time with her adorable new dog Riley (aka “Boots”) that she adopted from Animal Haven when she was in New York helping us move. Also helped get her new cooking and lifestyle blog, Ninth and Olive, off the ground which I encourage you to check out!

Completed my first olympic distance triathlon right here in Chicago in 90 degree weather.

Am now looking forward to the fall, settling into more of a routine and the temps getting a little more livable!

Limbo

I’ve been a very neglectful blogger this month, and it’s probably because along with unpacking, putting together ikea furniture, finding a new pet store, grocery store, camera store, etc . . . I haven’t been shooting much. After all this is a photo blog and as much as there is going on right now, if I don’t have anything new visually to show I don’t really have much to say. I did however take some stuff during our “limbo” period in Michigan while we were waiting for our movers to get from Brooklyn to Chicago, so that’s what this post is about. Ok so there are a few Chicago pics in there too.

Animal Haven

Kenny

I’ve been volunteering at Animal Haven for a few years now. It’s a wonderful animal shelter located in Soho, and I try and go once a week, and always bring my camera. I upload all the photos to a set on Flickr, and a few random photos can also be seen in the footer of my site.

I stopped by yesterday evening and couldn’t resist taking a few of Kenny, whose main feature are his adorable, floppy uneven ears. Please go to the Animal Haven site and check out the available dogs and cats!
