Warmth against my back

My head has been killing me today; so after giving breakfast and meds to my girls, I went back to bed. Mama also has a terrible headache that won’t quit. Paisley has been on double duty, going back and forth between our rooms to check on us. Oftentimes when I’m under her watch, she just…

Paisley’s new pjs

It’s been very cold in our house lately. Despite many layers of warm clothing and blankets, all three of us have been shivering. So when Mama and I spotted an adorable, soft fleece “onesie” pajama for Paisley, we couldn’t resist. She tolerated the cozy, festive jumper for a while, and she did finally stop shaking…

She’s got my back

A migraine triggered a Crohn’s flare for me today, leaving me mostly miserable. That is, until sweet Paisley climbed into my bed and nestled herself firmly against my back. It was just the comfort I needed. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s big heart! Day 342 of 365. And Day 1,073 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1…

The day we struck gold

Today is the two-year anniversary of Paisley’s adoption. Mama and I absolutely adore her, falling more in love with each snore and waddle. We feel deeply grateful this spunky, loving girl is part of our family. Paisley celebrated with a special dog cookie and lots of cuddles! Mama and I also both got our hair…

A marathon with Margo

Our friend Margo brought her sweet dog, Mason, over today. We adore this dog; he helped us be ready to adopt Paisley after we lost Abby two years ago. Mama, Margo, and I spent the afternoon enjoying a “Last Week Tonight with John Oliver” marathon and eating Chinese food. I made raspberry macarons, which were…

Peek-a-boo cuddles

Mama wasn’t feeling well today, so Paisley made it her personal mission to provide comfort and cheer. Our sweet blanket burrower even rushed back from our afternoon walk to resume her cuddling position. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s peek-a-boo cuddles! Day 311 of 365. And Day 1,042 in a row (here’s the first 366 & the following 365)!  1 year ago today: The…

We’re going back!

It’s official! We’re going back to our beloved Venice, Italy! And we leave next week! Mama and I have been researching and planning for the last few weeks, but essentially we’ve been packing on faith. We didn’t have flights or an apartment secured until this past week, but we are absolutely thrilled that it’s now…
