I was a little hesitant to commit to the fabulous Blog-tember Challenge (hosted by Bailey Jean), but with the encouragement of Stephanie I’ve decided to approach it like an a la carte challenge and participate on the days that I don’t have anything concocted.
Friday, September 4: What are you passionate about?
Easy enough prompt, yes? I am passionate about:
Hands down, my deepest worldly passion runs about on four legs (sometimes less) and barks, growls, meows, grunts, and moos. Honestly, I could do a month’s worth of posts dedicate to animal rights and behaviors and welfare and cruelty… but I’ll save it. I use cruelty-free products, brake for squirrels, help lost pets find their way home, and share a bed with two cold noses (and a human one). My career goal is totally focused around animals and someday I hope to be saving lots of lives!
I hate wishing the days away, but I can’t wait for the leaves to turn and the temperature to drop. I love October (and my birthday!) and the fall weather and fall foods and marching band and leaves and hot drinks and scarves and boots and clouds and everything fall. It makes me incredibly happy and every year I look forward to the changing seasons!
- my relationships
I know that I drive my husband crazy because I’m constantly observing. I observe myself, him, our relationship, other people, past interactions… EVERYTHING. But it makes me a more conscious human. Sometimes I lay in bed and watch our dogs sleep or listen to K breathe. Sometimes I sit quietly in the living room and take in the wall color and the fireplace and the bookshelves, and I feel so grateful to share this blessed life with my husband and our friends and our family.
- reading, writing, and scrapbooking
I love to learn and create and savor memories (captured in pictures). These three things are my hobbies and I feel so refreshed when I can dedicate time to each activity.
There are things I wish I was passionate about/hope to be passionate about, too! These include yoga, cooking, and being a mom someday. I think I’ll work on yoga first… HA!

I wish I could get into scrapbooking. It’s such a lovely way to collect and document memories/experiences especially in today’s digital world. I’m passionate about animals as well (in fact, just wrote an update about our rescue dog that we adopted earlier this summer!), travelling and learning about other cultures, and pumpkin spice everything! hah. just joking about that last one. Sweater weather is the best, though 😉
I’m on my way over to read it now!!
I LOOOVE traveling, too! I should’ve added that! Scrapbooking takes A LOT of work and sometimes I look at the finished page and think, ‘Well this sucks.’ Haha! My sister-in-law is a GENIUS scrapbooker and I love when she makes me pre-made books that just need pictures! 🙂 Ha!
Oh my word, I forgot Fall!! I, too, hate wishing days away but I am the happiest in Autumn.
I wasn’t sure if it was a passion or not, but I feel more awake and inspired in the fall!
I’m an animal lover as well. Honestly, if I could have a super power, it would be returning lost pets to their owners!
That’s a great super power!! I would be devastated if my dogs were lost so I always try to stop and return stray pets to their homes 🙂
