Tales of Gusto: Weddings, kittens and zombie squids

Here at Going for Gusto, we celebrate those who go for the gusto with our Tales of Gusto. This week, I've ran across a number of stories about people who recently have done awesome things and couldn't settle on just one.

So, instead, we'll be linking to five stories about the following who have tales of gusto to share:

The 40 vendors who helped Jen Bulik, a 35-year-old diagnosed with terminal cancer, get her dream wedding.

The two New Jersey teens who received a free Wendy's Frosty for standing up against someone bullying a cashier.

My fellow Northwest Herald alum Katie Kerr who – along with fiance Chris Sabino – came up with just about the best wedding invitation ever.

Anybody who fosters a kitteh during "kitten season."

Whichever culinary genius was behind the creation of this zombie squid dish.

I hope you enjoy all of these as much as I did. Be sure to check back in next Tuesday for more Tales of Gusto. You can submit Tales of Gusto to me by posting them at www.Facebook.com/GoingForGusto.
