Today I am grateful for:

My sweet baby girl, Addie. We celebrate our adoption anniversary today. I’ve been proud to be her over-protective and neurotic dog-mom for two years now. It’s funny, but I can’t remember what my life was like before her. How did I spend my weekends? What did I do before long walks, hikes, dog park dates, volunteer gigs? She has brought so much joy and love into my life. I didn’t know it was possible to love another living thing this much.

I’ve loved watching her grow from a terrified pup who thought that EVERYTHING held danger, to this warm, patient and loving girl. She puts such big smiles on so many faces. I am a better person from having her in my life.
