A look at today’s Edmonton weather by Environment Canada.

Today is one of those straight-up beautiful spring mornings. Sunshine, birds singing and a light breeze. Wouldn’t it be great to start the day with a nice stroll? This is one of the reasons I have been trying to convince my husband to get a dog! It would be that excuse I need to get out and enjoy these moments instead of just sitting at a computer most of the day and admiring the beauty through the window.

I know a lot of you are probably saying, you don’t need a dog to go for a walk. I do know this but I would really benefit from having the adorable motivation. A walking buddy that is cute and impossible to say no to, when it comes to a walk.

I know they are work. I grew up with dogs which is why I miss having one so much. The kids are on team dog with me. One day we will wear him down and get him on board to add a furry family member. Hopefully someday soon! PLEASE?!
