Have you ever wondered how you would
Round up your pets if a fire were to strike?

I think about this often.
As a matter of fact, I’ve ruled out several locations
During our current home search for that very reason!

That’s why I’m grateful for Helen’s awesome tips
On how to keep your pets safe in case of an emergency.

All of the pet people you know!

Created this lovely card inspired by memories of her trip,
Life is beautiful indeed!

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!
