3 Months in 30 Pictures [Part 1]

WE HAD A BABY! A lot has happened in the past 3 months, and I feel these pictures sum up our lives pretty well: It was Thanksgiving weekend, and Friday afternoon we were supposed to leave for our cottage trip (cue anxiety Thursday night as to whether we should even go!!) Friday morning I finished…

It’s been a WHILE! So much has happened since our December update; our little family is growing! WE GOT A PUPPY! Meet our sweet girl Nala! 😍 we weren’t sure she was going to make it when she was surrendered to my clinic with fluid on her lungs due to probable trauma, but she is doing amazing…
