Hello everyone, Saint and Dusty here! We wanted to hop on and talk to you guys about our first adventure as a family! We went to Detroit, Michigan, a few weeks ago because Mummy had a conference. This was Dusty’s first time flying, and she did so well! It was also Dusty’s first time in a shuttle and on a train, but she did well with everything!
Detroit was so fun! We got to see some of Mummy’s friends, we went on walks, but we couldn’t get to the dog park because Mummy couldn’t get her wheelchair up there. There was also a lot of construction so sometimes we couldn’t walk on the sidewalk, either. But we still had a blast! We went to the Detroit Institute of Art and the Detroit Public Library, which were awesome!
Everyone at the conference was so surprised to see Dusty: nobody knew Mummy was getting another service dog! All of Mummy’s friends were so excited to see us though, and it was awesome! We stayed at a super nice hotel called The Westin with these awesome dog beds, but we wanted to sleep next to Mummy, of course. The bed was HUGE, but we stayed right next Mummy all night! We had a blast on this trip, and we are very excited for the next adventure!
We love you all! Until next time, Saint and Dusty.

My daughter and I were on our way home from her first violin lesson the other night when I told her that if she didn’t like playing the violin that it’s OK, but that she should at least give it a chance. Continue reading “Try anything once”
The other day I was in a video to help spread the word about BEYOND LIMITS and was asked why am I a member. I think it’s hard to sum up in 30 seconds why I’m a member of BL so I thought I’d write a blog post to elaborate.

What does it mean to find yourself? People do lots of things to find themselves. They travel the world or go for a degree. For me it’s the later. I’m currently in school trying to figure out just who I am.

Have you ever said to yourself that one day you want to accomplish something great or cool or even just show the world what you’re made of? I know I’ve had those daydreams that one day (hopefully soon) I’ll prove my worth and acquire at least some mild amount of fame. All it takes to reach your goals is persistence—trust me, I’ve seen it.
