- A Puppy’s Zeal. I love the pursuit they have to fetch a toy or play keep away. They never shy away from any interaction they can receive. It’s hard not to love a fluffy, fur ball who enthusiastically loves. This week while in Brookings we played with a Corgi-poo. David is really softening up to dogs.
- Vigor in group fitness. This summer I started teaching group fitness classes to coincide with my personal training. It’s been a bit of a learning curve and has really stretched my comfort level instructing and leading others. But despite that, it has been a joy to witness the intensity a group of individuals can bring to a workout. They are all enthusiastic for a good workout.
- My mom’s passion. Anyone who knows her, knows that she has a green thumb and creative eye. She’s always had a passion for flowers and has been enthusiastic for every opportunity for be a florist for various weddings. Creating the most beautiful bouquets and detailed boutonnieres.
