Well, I don’t want to jinx it, but the weather is, indeed, getting warmer. I went on a walk yesterday and, although I was bundled up, I felt like spring was starting to peek through. It will only be a few more weeks now until it starts to feel more consistently warm. I cannot wait to ditch my winter boots and coats for skirts and dresses.
I haven’t really updated you guys on other big things that are happening right now! If you follow me on Instagram, then you already know that we picked out a puppy last weekend! We have been thinking about this for a long time and had been trying to decide on what kind of dog to get. We decided on a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel for a number of reasons. One being that they’re still considered a toy breed, so they’re a great size. They’re also known to have wonderful personalities. It’s my goal to get the little guy trained to be therapy dog so that we can take him to hospice facilities, hospitals, and nursing homes. He’s still too young to come home, but come April 14th, we’ll have him in our arms. We can’t wait! The name we came up with right now is Winston. :)
So, before we get our pup, we’ll be moving! That happens in a few weekends. It’s always stressful to pack up and shlep all of your earthly possessions to a new home. I do have some sentimental attachment to our current apartment since it’s the first apartment we lived in together. But our new place is definitely an upgrade. I’m excited for hardwood floors and a private fenced-in backyard for our little pup!
Next week, we’ll be in Colorado. James will be on spring break, so we thought it was the perfect opportunity to go home for a week or so. I’m excited to see my family, of course, and to see the progress they’ve made with their new house. I’m hoping that I’ll finally start to feel more settled in there.
Alright, so now you’re updated on my life. Now, a few little pieces from around the internet to get you excited for your weekend.
I am loving this silly little tip from Cup of Joe to lift your spirits.
I also love this post on Treasures and Travels about Lupita N’yongo, who has such elegance and grace in the way she conducts herself. She’s a true inspiration.
I’m pretty much dying over this pair of Zara sandals.
Have a great weekend.
