It's funny how something like having a dog can make you learn new things about yourself.
Having Brody around the past month has taught me about, well really more Affirmed, my nurturing character and it's strength.  It's been 4 weeks with our pup and I still hate leaving for work every morning, and am sad to leave him in the car when I go into a store.
I went to Petco for the first time last weekend (Mr. Man had been doing it alone prior to that) and Brody was allowed Into the store with us!!  That was so much fun!

Having Brody has also taught me that I love being outside, even when it's cold and windy and possibly raining (ok, maybe not when it's raining, let's be honest here!). I enjoy the fresh air and the time to just walk with him.  It's a great Necessary Motivator to get outside at a time of year when normally I would hibernate.

I also learned that I can't let Mr. Man always be the one to fill the food bowl, because Brody has very much less interest in me when he doesn't think I'll ever feed him!  Oh Dogs!

Wellfleet Oysterfest

Seriously one of the best weekends every year!  Anyone who has ever vacationed, visited, lived in, or grew up in Wellfleet comes to the town for an awesome event.
I am not gonna lie, I don't know how people can go to Oysterfest and walk around for the whole two days and just look around and deal with the crowds for 48 hours.  I have to mix in a bit of shopping, lots of eating, some visiting with friends, and some working of course!!
This year friends came to visit for the 2nd time on this iconic weekend.
There was some Oyster-eating:

Some friendly photo poses:

Lots of cute-Baby admiration:

Some serving of oysters of course:

And some doggy-lovin:

A great weekend all around! Thanks for visiting!!!
