Follow Friday

13 Aug

I’m running behind from the extra busy week at work so I’m going to go back and add photos later on when I have more time. For now, enjoy the best tweets Twitter has to offer! [UPDATE: photos added. Obviously. Isobel has greatly enjoyed the pool this summer. Also I rescued an abandoned kitten at the library. All in a day’s work!]

What is Follow Friday? It’s a Twitter meme that I have taken a couple steps further.  Learn more about it in my FAQ. See my nomination for a Shorty Award for Follow Friday here. You can read more Follow Friday goodness here.

    I think.

    Thank you!
