Checking In- Hiatus Explained

So, I fell off of the blogging wagon for a bit. I had a lot of stuff going on, both personally and professionally, and didn’t really want to write. I want my blog to be organic and natural so that it truly reflects me both as a writer and who I am as a person, so since I didn’t want to write, I didn’t force it. I am in a better place currently– the personal stuff is working itself out, and I have a few leads on exciting new career opportunities.  Continue reading “Checking In- Hiatus Explained”

The Greenbrier Valentine’s Day Trip

Meet Barrett!

Pretty much everyone who I have interacted with over the past year has heard about how much I want a puppy. I moved into my own apartment and it was a bit lonely without Meatball and Juliet underfoot, so I had been keeping my eye out for puppies online and in the shelters for the better part of a year. I realllllly wanted to rescue, but I wanted a dog that would stay small because a. I live in an apartment with no yard, and b. I travel a good bit and would like to be able to travel with my pup sometimes. I soon learned that it was tough to find a small dog at a shelter. So I kept looking.

One day, my boyfriend showed me an ad that he found on craigslist- a woman was rehoming a puppy. Continue reading “Meet Barrett!”
