      I’m absolutely loving the camera bag that I got. It’s the only bag I’ve used since I got it… even if I’m not carrying a camera. It has so many pockets! I’m glad I’m no the only one who talks to the animals in my life. 🙂

    I love this post! I finally had a successful day packing for my move coming up at the end of the month. I felt like so much was accomplished. Also, I finished the final rounds of editing my book for my Master’s defense! Needless to say, there was a lot that made me happy this week!

      Isn’t she cute? She had quite the personality too. I love her!

      Let me know when you try out Snapchat. It has a bit of a learning curve, but I love it.

    Oh, what kind of camera bag did you get? I’m a bit addicted to most bags, but I really love pretty camera bags. This week we’re having a lot of work done around our house, including workers tearing up and laying new flooring in our front living room, so I’ve been happy thinking about all the relaxing I can do next week.

      Yes! That’s always fun. We didn’t this time, but with this book I think it was a good thing. It was more of a business-related book.

      It always helps me, especially if I’m feeling a little down. 🙂 You’ll have to let me know what you think when you see it. I want to go see it again!

    I chat with my pup all the time. I’m convinced he knows exactly what I’m saying 🙂 Awwww <3 that you can bring pups into work–or at least that someone snuck one in the office.

    Ooh, any good reading recs to share!? Always looking for good books!

    XOXO and enjoy your weekend!

      I think my pup knows exactly what I’m saying too. 🙂 We were actually at someone’s house for the meeting, but we have been known to sneak our pups into work, especially during the summer.

      What kinds of things do you like to read? Right now I’m reading a YA series called Escape From Furnace with a coworker. It’s by Alexander Gordon Smith and the first book is Lockdown. It’s about a youth prison that’s buried deep within the earth and a thief is framed for murder and put into Furnace (the name of the prison). I’m on the second book, but my coworker is already on the last book of the series and he said that it just gets better and better.

    Hi Crystal,

    Connecting with animals always makes me my day! Unfortunately, in this phase of my life I don’t have time to take care of an animal but I would love to! April Showers also made me happy this week because the scent of the flowers is more intense when the rain is over!
