See what I did there with the title? 🙂 Happy Friday blogging friends! I am ready for the weekend as usual, and Labor Day weekend at that! Three day weekends are the best. I feel so much more balanced having that extra day to balance the work week. I think people would be happier if every weekend lasted 3 days. Think of all the mini trips you could take! Anyway here are some of my favorite things from this past week: My time in Togo, Africa was so wonderful. I’m so happy I was able to have a small part in the very important documentary called Warlords of Ivory that was featured on the Explorer series on National Geographic. I blogged about my trip in Part 1 and Part 2.
And I’d also like to add this video to go along with that documentary, because who doesn’t love elephants?! I actually got goosebumps watching this video. We have to help protect those elephants, I can’t even fathom the idea of them going extinct in our lifetime, but at the rate it’s going it’s a very real and sad possibility.
How awesome that Kristin Davis posted about that same video on Twitter:
She has been very vocal about her passion for saving the elephants and is a patron of The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. She and Bryan know each other through their wildlife efforts and love of elephants.
I’m loving these just released photos of Nikki Reed and Ian Somerhalder’s wedding that were featured on Bride Magazine. Such a good looking couple.
It was so much fun for Mattie and I to host our first link up! Thank you to all those who linked up, read along, and commented! Our next one is Thursday October 1st, where you tell us your favorite things about your state.
I am a total sucker for the royal family and I absolutely love that Prince Harry is currently spending 3 months in Africa concentrating on conservation efforts and promoting animal welfare. How amazing is this photo of him examining a sedated lion to check its vitals? Can’t wait to hear more about his travels and work.
Looks like I just missed a run in with the president! He is currently in Alaska filming a segment with Bear Grylls to check on the climate change effects and to test his wilderness survival skills. I can’t wait to see that episode 🙂 And I love that they took a selfie together hah!
What fun weekend activities do you guys have planned? So far my plans are taking friends to the airport and going for a hike afterwards since I’ll already be up. Can’t wait to hear what you are all up to through all the wonderful link ups!
