These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things!
I am personally familiar with every business and charity listed on this page. I have either used their services or volunteered in one way or another. Check them out. They are awesome! Thank you!
The guide to the authentic Paris written by my sister, Heather, a French citizen. I've been to France once, and returning for another trip this year! It is a very thorough guide that covers the "must see" attractions, French history, using the metro, safety, basic French vocabulary, and essential customs. So check it out and make plans for your own trip!
MY FAVORITE LINKS!
The Lakota reservation in Pine Ridge, South Dakota is the poorest county in the country. Many families live without heat, running water, or electricity. I have been to Pine Ridge to visit the family that I sponsor there. It is like visiting a third world country. My Mom is a volunteer for One Spirit. It is a program to help the reservation be more self sufficient and break the cycle of poverty. There are many ways to help the Lakota people on their website. You can sponsor a family, donate supplies to the youth center, provide a food box, or wood for a stove. I have met those that run this program and the wonderful residents of Pine Ridge. The Lakota people don't have much, but they share everything. One Spirit is making a difference. I highly recommend supporting this charity. Click here for the website.
My dog, Bear, photo bombed my photo shoot, but he is so cute I had to put his picture on here. We rescued him from being chained up in a backyard. We also adopted Codi, who passed away after a year. My husband and I have been involved in Saving Paws Rescue for many years. They rescue German Shepherds and Belgian Malinois dogs on the euthanasia list. SPR helps dogs that no one else will. There are many ways you can help these awesome dogs. They just need love, training, exercise, and patience. The dogs are so grateful to be given a second chance. Visit Saving Paws Rescue AZ to find out how you can get involved!
Meet Etana Holowinko, my website designer who is an important part of my team. She is the owner of Society Jazz Design, and taught me how to create my own WordPress website and maintain it myself. I am not a very technical person, so this was a monumental project for me. Etana is passionate about her craft, and is extremely knowledgeable about the ever-changing world of website technology. She listened to the needs and dreams for my website, and was very patient in instructing me how to accomplish my goals. She is a delightful person to work with. So, please contact her if you have any website design needs! I highly recommend her.
