Paper obsessed life coach navigating the everyday stuff with a grateful heart 

Hi, Wendy Ann.
Your friend with three dogs and
a purpose.

Hey thanks so very much for stopping by thehopefulbird nest. You're always welcome to join our adventures as we point our hearts at what really matters while enjoying a good dog ruckus or two. The NEST SHENANIGANS blog is a playful glimpse into all things hopeful bird. First of course will be the inside scoop on all things Fin, Duff & Spike . Then there's encouragement, gratitude, journaling and coaching too. My purpose is to raise hope and inspire people to find and shine their light so that the world can be a brighter place. The blog is a tool designed to do just that.

Welcome to the
Nest Shenanigans

This is not a typical blog. Nope. Not even close.  It's a gathering place for hearts and souls longing for encouragement and light. And it's also where Finley's infamous shenanigans unfold into a glorious lesson revealed. Finley is a scrappy stray pup turned king-of-cozy and boss of all good things at thehopefulbird. Together with his faithful companions
Duff and Spike, they teach this paper obsessed creator
 and coach about the meaning of life.

But my motto (or at least one of them) is to do what scares you a little and lights you up a lot. So stay tuned for an announcement in the depths of winter from the hopeful bird.
