I completely forgot to celebrate Goat of the Day’s first birthday, which occurred on October 1st. I am a bit stunned that I have managed to carry on posting my goat photographs everyday for now over a year! The majority of these goats I have had the pleasure of meeting and photographing in person, with a few exceptions of when friends have met and photographed goats and sent them along, and a few famous goat portraits that float around the internet.
This feat would not have been possible without my friends who think of me when they see goats, nor would it have been possible without my partner who has patiently driven me to places where goats reside, or accompanied me to events where we will happen upon goats and who supports my daily habit. Also, this blog would not be possible without my mother who generously gave me my camera that has been hard at work photographing goats since the summer of 2019. I am also grateful to all of those people who read this blog, for whatever reason, who like the posts and give me a follow. I hope to continue to provide pictures of goats with good vibes for at least a while longer. To that end, I revisited one of my most favourite places in all of the England, Buttercups Sanctuary for Goats. I urge you if you ever find yourself in southern England to spend an afternoon among the friendly goats in their caprine utopia.
Many, many thanks to Buttercups for keeping these amazing creatures and allowing the public to enjoy
Let yourself be free this weekend – let yourself be without a plan and just enjoy some fun. Get out there and let your worries switch off.
Enjoy yourself it’s a Saturday
Make some memories this weekend with those that you love. We live in an amazing time where capturing, saving, and reliving the moment is at our fingertips – take advantage!
Whatever you do, don’t forget to take a couple pics
Today is an exceptional day. First, it is Friday the Thirteenth. Second, it is a full moon, specifically the Harvest Moon. It is called the Harvest Moon as it is the full moon that occurs closest to the Autumnal Equinox. In addition, it is also a micro moon, which means that the moon is positioned at its apogee, its most distant point away from the Earth along its orbit. Full moons are wondrous times to sit back and reflect, let go of what no longer serves you, and the harvest is the best time to gather together what nourishes you and leave the rest.
Don’t be freaked out, today is actually a wonderful day to renew and revitalize!
When it feels like a door to one possibility is shut, don’t despair. Other, potentially even more amazing possibilities are all around, you just have to look.
There is always a different path to choose along your life’s adventure
Go forth and make the most of the last weeks of summer – before you know it the days will be shorter and colder. Enjoy some sunshine this weekend.
Have an amazing weekend and enjoy the beautiful weather
It is ok to take some personal space sometimes to recharge. This weekend, make sure you carve out some time just for you to spend with yourself.
It is ok to break off for a bit and join back when you are ready.
Whew, sometimes the weeks feel like they go by so fast! Take some time this weekend to pause and take an inventory of all the amazing things in your life. It is hard but sometimes remembering a special detail here and there can highlight the best bits of life that can easily slip under the radar and be taken for granted.
So many little things to take stock of and be grateful for this weekend ❤
When things don’t quite seem to be working out the way you planned, just focus on the present moment. There is nothing you can do to change the past, and the future has yet to be written, so just allow yourself to enjoy all the beautiful things of the now.
Find the wonderful in the present and don’t fret over the past
Rest and relax so you will be recharged for the new week ahead!
Save up your energy – this week is going to be fantastic
