NAMIWalks 2020

$1,945 raised for NAMI Dane County. Thank you.

Thanks to everyone who donated to my NAMIWalks fundraiser this year! With your help, I raised $1,945 for NAMI Dane County. So amazing. If you can, get outside today and get some sun. We had beautiful weather at Olin Park in Madison on Saturday for our (mostly) virtual NAMIWalks event. #nami #namiwalks #mentalhealthforall #notalone #whyiwalk …

A cloud of mist

A cloud of mist at McKee Farms Park in Fitchburg, Wisconsin

A cloud of mist early this morning over the pond at McKee Farms Park. The crisp fall air feels like life itself. We are truly living and being our best selves. Happy Thursday, friends. #iphonography #iphonexs #fitchburgwi #midwestliving #wisconsin #madisonwi #madisonwisconsin #mckeefarmspark #mist #pond #fog

Luke says…

Luke says he loves you and misses you.

Luke says that he loves you and misses you. It’s been a tough time, but he knows that good things are just up ahead for you. It’s palpable. He can smell it in the air! Have faith!

Mr. Compliments

Mr. Compliments

I jokingly call Luke “Mr. Compliments.” A little boy walking with his parents this evening told me, “He’s cute.” One day, Luke got compliments from 4 different strangers. Kids and adults both like him. He’s friendly and doesn’t bark. Luke loves people, and so do I.
