On Sunday we went to the Humane Society of Huron Valley‘s adoption event — Kitty Palooza! There were more than 100 kittens ready to be adopted, and the Humane Society was offering adoption specials that were too good to pass up (that is, if you love cats and wanted an excuse to adopt!).

Senior portraits aren’t just a sign that you’re done with high school; they have become a personality statement. For many families, these … Read More
