WordPress Plugins & My Recommendations

Tech, Top of Mind, WordPress
WordPress plugins are amazing! I have been creating WordPress websites for the past 4 years with 25 websites under my belt since 2011.

Samson & Squirrel Season

Random, Top of Mind
A Little Background Samson is our 5 1/2 year old Labrador we adopted in 2013 when we were still living in Truckee. He is our special needs puppy and we love him dearly!

I clicked on the link to @BobWP's post to find this great idea! Make a list of the 99 things you love and try to do it in 10 minutes! It is a pretty timely challenge since it can also be interpreted in the you are thankful or grateful for as well! Needless to say I have taken the challenge!
