Spent last week in Kanab, Utah, enjoying my sixth trip to Best Friends Animal Sanctuary despite the universe trying to foil my intentions (HUGE thanks to Claire and Robert without whom the vacation literally wouldn’t have been possible).

For folks who haven’t met me, I like to spend my vacations with Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, Utah, the location of the largest no-kill animal sanctuary in the United States.

So Carrie (and Derek) and Andrea and John at work filled the kitchen with red velvet cupcakes for my birthday, and Jen decorated them with my favorite things (including polyhedral dice, the Best Friends logo, and pancakes with syrup). Then Holly and Liz schemed to […]
