After two weeks, the hubs is flying home!!! Maybe not on a dragon like @toothless_corgi but not all of us can be as pawsome 🤷🏻♀️ . . I will say, I am pretty proud of myself for holding down the fort with the baby/biz (COULDNT do it without the help of our amazing babysitter and friends). I am also pretty exhausted so this upcoming surgery feels like a forced vacation HAH! . . Only a few spots left for custom stickers for the holidays! Link in bio for details.
Dear Andy, Two years ago your daddy and I decided we wanted to start building our lives to have a family. I wanted to pursue a career that would let me to work at home, have it be a job that can grow despite never knowing where this military life takes us, and for it to also be fulfilling. Two years ago I didn’t know it would be pet portraits that would check all those boxes, and I didn’t know what motherhood would be like, but I have only gratitude for how the pieces fell together. Having you in our lives makes one thing crystal clear: always put love first. Love will bring you strength to keep working hard. It will bring joy in more ways than you can fathom. Love fiercely. Love carefully. Love always. Two years led me to you. We are going to have so much more to celebrate together for all the years to come. Love you for eternity and beyond, Mama. (Now say it. Mmmmmmm-ah. Mmmm-AH. No, not DADAdadada.) . . . 🎉🎉 Thank you for participating in my giveaway! Two winners will be announced next week. I have to gather all the entries together and put them in that random generator! Wooooo! 🎉🎉

Yes, I am a mini hoarder of plants and little trinkets. I have recently been using them in my little progress photoshoots and it’s adding so much tail wagging joy to my life! No, it’s not a problem. I have a basket to contain it all and it’s not full.... yet. 😁 hardeeharhar. . . 11x14 watercolor, the beginnings of Penny!
