Happy August! Currently I am laying down with my puppy right beside me. A little side note: he was neutered and had all four of his dew claws removed this past Thursday. His healing process has been quite the venture to say the least, but hey, dog control...there's already too many homeless dogs out there so I know this will all be worth it. His e-collar is annoyingly in the way 99% of the time. A week and a half to go, phew!

On July 21st I celebrated my 25th birthday! A quarter of a century, WOAH! Bailey with Brave Love Blog just so happened to write about celebrating her 25th as well and answered 73 questions to document where life is at 25 years young. The idea originated from some of Vogue's interviews and is supposed to be done in a "rapid-fire" fashion.
