26 & A Birthday Wish

1 Comment

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 :).
