I love the blooms on this tree, but unfortunately, there were some power lines in the photo. Thankfully, they were fairly easy to remove in Photoshop.
This is Zoe, a therapy dog at the school where I teach. Isn't she gorgeous? She brings so much joy to the staff and students.

I recently partook in a mini golf league with my colleagues, which culminated with a happy hour at Artisanal Brew Works. I got the "good sport award" (read: worst score), which earned me a free drink!
