Happy National Puppy Day! 🐾🐾

Today is National Puppy Day!!! Woof Woof! ❤️ 🐾❤️🐾❤️

Owning a dog (two for me) is seriously one of the best things ever! My life feels so much more full and complete with my pups by my side. They are always up for a road trip or adventure with us and no matter what LOVE us unconditionally.

As many of you may know, I’m the proud owner of two wonderful white mini schnauzers Emma & Dash. When I look back at when I first got Emma in 2011 I can’t even imagine that at one point I had no dogs. Now I have two and wouldn’t trade that for anything in the world!

Dash is almost 1.5 and our girl Emma will be 6 in April.

One of the things I love most about having dogs is the companionship. I feel so close to each of my pups and love them dearly. Don’t get me wrong sometimes they get in moods and drive us bonkers, but at the end of the day I always have their smiling faces waiting for me when I come home (along with my hubby 😉 ). I really believe that there is a bond between a human and their dog. I experienced that first hand with Emma and now I have that with Dash. These two seriously make my heart swell with love. They are so precious and mean the world to me!

Our pups are pure bread mini schnauzers and actually share the same dad. How funny is that?! We got them both from Skansen Kennel in Sebastopol. You can read about when we got Dash here. If you want to read/learn more about mini schnauzers you can read about how awesome they are here.

Since it’s national puppy day I thought it would only be fitting to share some of my favorite quotes about dogs to round up this long post about how much I love my dogs.

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”
Josh Billings

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”
Roger Caras 

“The world would be a nicer place if everyone had the ability to love as unconditionally as a dog.”
M.K. Clinton

“Happiness is a warm puppy.”
― Charles M. Schulz

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring–it was peace.”
― Milan Kundera

“Such short little lives our pets have to spend with us, and they spend most of it waiting for us to come home each day.
It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.”
― John Grogan

Awwwww am I right folks? Dogs are so wonderful! ❤️ 🐾❤️🐾❤️  I mean look at these two!


Happy National Puppy Day Emma & Dash! We LOVE you oh so much! The two of you make our lives so much better. Thank you for being so loving, spunky and full of personality!


Happy St. Patrick’s Day 🍀



Here are a few Irish blessing that I really like and wanted to share on this St. Patrick’s Day! Such sweet little messages and blessings. Hope you enjoy! 🍀🍀🍀

Today I am rocking this Bill Murray shirt from the Chive. My hubby loves these shirts and I have become a big fan too! Naturally we just HAD to get them for St. Patty’s Day. I’ll be sure to get a picture of us both wearing them later tonight.

Although I’m not actually Irish, I love any excuse to celebrate a holiday! I think I get a few extra points, because I did marry an Irish guy who is also a redheaded. Double win for me! He He He

Hope everyone has a WONDERFUL and very LUCKY day! Happy St. Patty’s Day! 🍀🌈💚🍀💚🍀🌈💚🍀



P.S. I know I haven’t blogged lately…just way too busy. I will try and catch up or at least get back to posting on a more regular basis. Thanks for reading!
