Gratitude

dg (1)

As this weekend comes to an end I feel an overwhelming wave of gratitude coming over me. It’s been a fantastic weekend. I have no words. So instead I’m sharing this photo from earlier today. I hope your weekend was magical, relaxing, fun, energizing, and everything else you wanted it to be.

Love,

I started to write a post about a magical hike we made on Memorial day (I’ll share it with you later on, no need to worry,) when new entries to the Weekly Photo Challenge started to fill up my inbox. This week’s theme Friend, is just to good to pass up on.

I grew up with German Shepherds, and I just love the breed. I’m not sure if there is any living soul more loyal than one of a German Shepherd. My two year old girl Gretchen, a rescue that I’ve only had a couple months have quickly become my shadow. If I’m there, she is there.

Gretchen loves to keep me company when I work in my garden. This week we’ve been (re)planting peach trees (into bigger containers. All my trees grows in containers.)

With a German Shepherd you’re just never lonely. As a woman I feel much better hiking on secluded trails, or spending time in rural areas (something I enjoy tremendously) with a German Shepherd by my side.

I love how intelligent, and attentive they are. How they love to learn new things, and always says yes to adventure! Tell me about your friend! If you participate in the photo challenge, feel free to leave a link to your post in a comment, I’d love to see it!
