1 year of blogging

Well I can’t believe its been just over 1 year since I jumped in with both feet and braved putting myself out there with a blog. Originally I thought I would use it for young living and education about essential oils, but it quickly evolved into a blog about my dogs and cooking with just a touch of essential oils on the side.

I’d like to thank everyone who has taken the time to read and comment on my posts. It means a lot to me to know that someone is looking at what I wrote.

Its amazing how cathartic it can be to write things down about the dogs and how it feels good to memorialize the ones that we have loved and lost.

I also love cooking, always have, and I think the greatest compliment you can give someone is to ask for their recipe. I have always like sharing great recipes that I find and this is an easy place to do that.

I have been inconsistent with my posts recently, but I want to get back to at least weekly posts again. Maybe more if I’m feeling creative.

While I’m writing I figured I should update all of you on Brogan. He is doing well, he still collapses, and no one seems to be able to figure it out. So we just try to do stuff that keeps him somewhat calm and contained because big bursts of energy or excitement seem to cause him to collapse. Both dogs are resigned to on leash only walks and now that its not so hot out we can go for much longer ones. They both behave much better on a leash now than what they did when we first started with on leash walks so they are more enjoyable for all of us. And Rosco is Rosco, affectionate, loving and goofy, and healthy, healthy is pretty rare in the animals I love. So I have to mention that.


Happy New Yearย 

Happy New Year everyone!! Looking back on 2017 I have to say I had a pretty good year overall. I’m not saying that it was perfect and that there weren’t bumps in the road or things I wished I had or hadn’t said or did or didn’t do. But overall it was a pretty good year. 

We were lucky enough to make more new friends and spend lots of time with friends of old. Although we didn’t get to go on a tropical vacation we did get to spend 3 weeks this summer at our cabin hanging out with friends and family. I got to enjoy a lot of paddle boarding, boating and beach time. Also had lots of great walks in the woods with my 2 Dogs. 

I know it’s traditional to make new years resolutions, but this year I think I’m skipping it. Or at least not announcing it. One of my friends posted this and I love it. 

So here’s to the new year and smashing all the goals you set for yourselves!!
