For Laura's birthday this year, in place of presents she requested donations to take to the animal shelter. Needless to say, our young animal lover and budding philanthropist made us exceedingly proud in her decision that surpasses her age in both selflessness and empathy. ❤️ This decision turned into something way bigger than any of us could have possibly hoped for. Our always-generous and giving family and friends showed up with myriads of donations, the unsurpassed staff at Hello Gorgeous in Marlton donated over $100!, another huge pile of donations arrived from Stratford United Methodist Church, and we even received monetary donations from kind strangers who overheard Laura talking about her birthday plan. We are absolutely overwhelmed with GRATITUDE!
Here are our totals!: Dry dog food: 168.1 lbs
Can dog food: 43
Dry cat food: 87.04 lbs
Can cat food: 99
Dog treats: 15 boxes/bags (3 huge)
Cat treats: 5 (1 large)
Dog toys: 9
Cat toys: 100+
15 "Adopt Me" bandannas, handmade by the kids at Laura's family party
And $300!!! 🐶❤️🐱 This experience has reminded me that among the darkness of the world we live in, there is SO much light! And one tiny person can make an impact that is HUGE!
To everyone who contributed, in any capacity, THANK YOU from our family and the sweet and deserving critters who will receive your kindness. ❤️❤️❤️ #animalshelter#8thbirthday#payitforward#generosity#selflessness#grateful#hellogorgeoussalon

We operate a #payitforward system for coffee and would like your input for a local charity we can gift these free coffees to. Let us know if there’s any that are dear to your heart or any volunteer groups that would appreciate this. We just need a location to drop the cards off #gratitude#community

A HUGE shout out to @roseannagonzalez for not giving up on her vision for this AND allowing me to be a part of it. .
Do you like being crafty, DIY stuff, showing random/unconditional love to others that are really needing to be loved on? Check this out. If you know someone (could even be someone you dont know that well) that could really use some TLC and want to refer them to us to receive a jar (jars will be given based off of LOVE referrals), let us know. .
Shout out to my beautiful friend Dinorah in California wanting to help out with this project from afar. She cut out 37 😯 "Love" words and will be shipping them to Tucson for our jars 💜😘 (we love you). .
Our "Girl Time Vision Board" event is on Sat 4/7 (just to give you a heads up).

Thank you Judy and Jennifer for donating magazines for this event. So helpful!. .

A-freaking-MEN!!! You can’t unlearn what you know. We owe it to one another to pay-it-forward. There is nothing more rewarding to me than the messages I get to hear about Lupus no longer being able to be detected in someone’s body, or the mother who’s autistic son is having less emotional outbursts and more focus, or the fact I no longer have asthma. I owe it to the world to scream from the top of my lungs that healing with food IS POSSIBLE 🥗🥑🍆🍅🍒 I’m so thankful someone ♥️’d me enough to share an easy way to ensure my family gets more! #payitforward#plantsheal#easybutton

What a day! There were so many incredible moments, enlightening topics. @tonyrobbins and his teachings have been a core part of our exponential growth, both in real estate and as individuals. Getting to share a day with one of his top coaches, @michaeljsavage , and so many of our close friends, family members, and top clients was a special moment for us and we hope it was a special moment for all who attended. #TenDaysofTony#TasteofTony

In January, @dexterthehusky dug a hole under our fence & led the way for him & his brother, Titan, to escape. Dexter found his way back, Titan did not. This morning, two months later, we received a call from Citrus Park Animal Hospital. Titan was found in Carpenters Run (a neighborhood on the other side of a 6 lane highway from ours) by an amazing women named Kristen who cared for him & took him in to see if he was chipped. Fortunately, he was. Today my faith in humanity has been restored due to this women that went above & beyond to do what was right & to help others. Although he isn’t in great shape (missing a lot of hair & super skinny), he couldn’t be happier to be home. He hasn’t left our side since. Titans home! 🐯 #savannahcat#homeiswheretheheartis#andfood#welcomehometitan#goodkarma#payitforward
It’s good to talk. And it’s ‘National Conversation Week’! Doug’s such a good listener, and is so very discreet, as I’m sure many of you lovely peeps are too! So, how about each day this week we all try and talk with someone we haven’t spoken to for a while - or maybe just someone whose day you could brighten with your dazzling chat! We love a good quote, as you know, and one of our faves is “everyone we meet is fighting a battle we know nothing about”. So true. Never look at a dashingly beautiful person and feel intimidated. They just want people to be nice too. Go on, get on the dog and bone and have a chat 🍖☎️🍖 Or pop by and see someone to share a cuppa ☕️🍰 Or, bold of bold, make eye contact and chat with someone on your way to work! 🙈👀🙊 You might like it! 😍 Thank you to our friends at @teapottrust for telling us all about this special week in our calendar! We so dearly value all you love and share. 💞🐶💞 #nationalconversationweek#goodtotalk#dogandbone#dogandbonephone#itsgoodtotalk#conversationweek#reducingisolation#loneliness#isolation#mentalhealth#dosomethingfornothing#payitforward#randomactsofkindness#friendship

I watched this lady sit at the open gate trying to feed this ticket into the out of order machine for a minute before I got out and told her the gate was open and she didn't need the ticket.
Sometimes the solution is right in front of you. Or in this case, behind you.

Today's feature is of TRX Senior Course Instructor 👉🏾 @coachjustinruss! Read more about his story in his own words.⠀
"My name is Justin Russ, and I have worked as a Strength and Conditioning Coach at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida since August of 2013. Additionally, I have been a Black and Yellow Ranked TRX Sr. Course Instructor since 2012, as well as a Master Trainer with TriggerPoint.⠀
As the lead Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Academy’s Bollettieri Tennis Program, I specialize in working with ATP/WTA Professionals, ITF Juniors, and high school aged tennis players. My coaching philosophy is as follows:⠀
To develop and hone in on the physical capacities of strength, speed, explosiveness, coordination, and work capacity that will reduce the risk of injury, improve on-court performance, and develop a comprehensively well-rounded athlete with significant physical advantages their opponent, resulting in more match victories.⠀
Instilling the values of accountability, attitude, character, confidence, effort, integrity, mental toughness, punctuality, resolve and tenacity are prioritized in my programs, as I am to develop both great athletes and great people as well.⠀
During my tenure at IMG, I have coached career-high top-5 and top-10 ATP and WTA players, Olympic Gold Medalists, Grand Slam Champions, Junior Grand Slam Champions, a two-time NCAA National Champion, a #1 ranked male and female junior player, top 100 and 200-ranked ATP/WTA professionals, and numerous Division 1 athletes of all sports.⠀
Despite these accomplishments, my greatest satisfaction comes in watching high school athletes develop physically and emotionally throughout the school year. There are always kids who come in shy, timid, unsure of themselves, and have never set foot in a weight room before. Watching them develop confidence, strength, autonomy, and the ability to fearlessly attack new challenges that they previously saw as a threat is extremely gratifying to me, and my reason for waking up each day".⠀
