“A dog doesn’t care if you are rich or poor, clever or dull, smart or dumb. Give him your heart and he’ll give you his. How many people can you say that about? How many people can make you feel rare and pure and special? How many people can make you feel extraordinary?” – John Grogan, author of Marley & Me

This right here is a big part of my heart. Bandit has been by my side for 12 years, he’s our family dog and moving away with Neal in our condo once we are married will be really tough for me to leave him with my parents. I am so used to waking up everyday to his wagging tail looking up the stairs for when I’ll come down. Embracing me with kisses when I walk through the door. Comforting and sitting by me whenever I get sick. He is my best friend and one of the best parts of my day is having his goofy nonsense ground me when life just gets to be too much…














Dress: Splendid

I’ve teamed up with Splendid on their #spreadsoftness campaign (that goes beyond the super soft fabrics) to spread some happiness and there is nothing that makes me happier than dogs. I think we could all use more “happy” in this world, and I really try my best to focus on what brings me joy. My dog is definitely at the top of that list. Inside his wolf-like exterior, lives a soft teddy bear who just loves to be smothered by me (which I am happy to do). 

Question:What brings you joy? 

Thank You to Splendid for partnering on this post.
