happy birthday bailey

If you couldn't already tell, I'm back from my hiatus!! and with a mini re-vamp on my blog and with lots of updates to come! yay finally! :) Thanks for your patience and encouragement (you know who you are). I'm so grateful to have people that constantly believe in me.

I'm a little late with this post, but better late than never!

You must think I'm a crazy dog lady, but no... really I am (haha), and I just love animals. I'd love a cat just as much as I do my dogs if I had one... and though I've tried (incessantly) prodding David for a cat in the past, we've concluded we're happy as we are right now, a pseudo family of four.

We don't know how old Bailey is because he was a rescue and the shelter's guesstimation puts his birthday sometime in September. I've decided that I will celebrate his birthday on the first day of fall, September 22 (I just decided this a couple of days before his `birthday` actually haha). We've had the pleasure of being his human parents for 2.5 years now and I'm constantly learning new things (about him and myself and David)... is this what parenthood is like?

I've said it before and I'll say it again, I think everyone should have the privilege to grow old with a dog by their side. They bring so much enrichment and joy to your life that I really... really can't imagine my life any other way.

Happy 4th birthday my dearest Bailey!

(those are doggy cupcakes btw, though I have to say I kind of questioned the owner's word on those not being real sprinkles... um they sure look like it. Thankfully he didn't get sick so I'll try to believe him)
