Good morning everyone, welcome back! Today is (somehow) my 26th birthday! The past three years (since I started blogging) have been a crazy ride and I have grown so much during them.
Today I’d like to ask something of all of you. Occasionally I still get people asking me what I would like for my birthday, and honestly there is nothing I want for myself. I have more love and objects in my life than I could ever need and I am so thankful for everything the past 26 years have brought me.
Something that does need your love and attention, however, is Susie’s Senior Dogs. SSD is a nonprofit that is working to bring awareness to homeless senior dogs. These dogs have had really tough lives and all they need is love and a forever home. The stories are so touching I wish I could take in all of them (though my current living arrangements won’t allow me one at the moment).
There have been days where I call Bryan up crying because of a sad story I saw about a senior dog who had to be euthanized due to lack of space in a shelter. It absolutely rips my heart out to see what these poor pups have to endure, and they have done absolutely nothing to deserve it.
Whether it’s buying a book, making a donation, or just following along on Facebook or Instagram, please just take a minute to support these pups or help them find their forever homes. Awareness is the first step we can take!
Thank you all so much for listening! I cannot believe how blessed I am to have such supportive readers and a dedicated following! I started this blog at 22, never knowing how many people I would connect with over it! Thanks for sticking it out with me through my mid-twenties. I have a feeling this year will be the best year yet :).
