For those of you following my Instagram, you’ve no doubt noticed that we’ve added a new member to our little family: Lucy. We picked her up in late January and the last six weeks have been a whirlwind of puppy-ness. It’s amazing how much a pet can change your life.
First of all, Lucy feels a little bit like my daughter. I never totally understood what people meant when they referred to their dogs as their “kids.” Until now. She’s a bundle of joy (and energy) and a total handful at the same time. Lucy isn’t my first dog (my family had three dogs – two labs, one Westie – in the house growing up) but she’s the first one I’ve had since being in my own home. Not to mention, she’s the only pet my husband and I have ever shared together. It’s been one of the most fun and thrilling experiences for us. While she is quite a bit of work (Lucy has been teaching us many lessons in the art of patience), she brings us so much happiness and laughter. Needless to say, she’s a big part of my life now and I’m excited to share more of our little Lucy with you.
