Giving - First Quarter



Can you believe it's already April? I don't know where the time is going?! And since we're a quarter of the way in, I thought it would be a good time to share and shine a light on the organizations we've helped. And if you didn't know, your purchases have a purpose! Each month a portion of sales are donated to a different cause - you can read more about it here.

Let's get to know the organizations we've helped so far...

Catching Up...



Since I totally fell off the blogging train, I thought we should probably catch up a bit.

Why This Loss Hurts So Much



One month without our sweet Bosco. :(

On one hand it still feels like yesterday... and the other feels like so much longer.  It's a harsh reminder that the world doesn't stop and life will keep going on. And I'm no stranger to loss because my dad passed away when I was 15. Talk about heartbreaking and turning your world upside down! Now with Bosco passing, the band-aid that was holding my heart together, was ripped off and broke open my heart after years of healing...

Grieving & Healing



I was just a pup when we first met, I loved you from the start,
you picked me up and took me home and placed me in your heart.

Good times we had together, we shared all life could throw,
but years passed all too quickly, my time has come to go.

I know how much you miss me, I know your heart is sore,
I see the tears that fall when I’m not waiting at the door.

You always did your best for me your love was plain to see,
for even though it broke your heart you set my spirit free.

So please be brave without me, one day we’ll meet once more,
for when you’re called to Heaven I’ll be waiting at the door.

Goodbye My Sweet Bosco



March 7th, 2002 - December 27th, 2017 🌈

We are beyond heartbroken. Our sweet little Bosco passed over the rainbow bridge early Wednesday morning. He went peacefully at home on his bed with his favorite blankets and I was right by his side comforting him. My heart is shattered into a million pieces and the house is so lonely without him. I literally have a pit in my stomach and pain in my heart.

It wouldn’t be kidney disease that took him, but congestive heart failure.

After a few months of ups and downs, I truly believe he was ready to be pain free. We noticed his health started to decline over the weekend, but he held on for one more Christmas together. There are even a few of his presents still wrapped under the tree. :( We took him to the vet on Tuesday but she wasn't very optimistic and after an xray, he had a lot of fluid in his lungs. We immediately started medicine to try and drain them and hoped it would work over the coming days. We came home and he was pretty tired out from a long day and Brandon went to work. As the night went on, I noticed his breathing was even more abnormal and I just knew it was his time. The hardest part was being alone and the frantic call I had to make to Brandon. He rushed home from work but he was too late. Our sweet boy was gone.

Bosco, thank you for the almost 16 years of love, happiness and memories you brought to our lives. We hope you are already enjoying all the donuts and chicken you can eat and are keeping all of our family members and fur friends in heaven company. You will live in our hearts forever until we meet again one day....

You no longer greet me as I walk through the door.
You're not there to make me smile, to make me laugh anymore.
Life seems quiet without you, you were far more than a pet.
You were a family member, a friend... a loving soul I'll never forget.
It will take time to heal - for the silence to go away.
I still listen for you, and miss you every day.
You were such a great companion, constant, loyal and true.
My heart will always wear, the pawprints left by you.

Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays
'Cause no matter how far away you roam
If you want to be happy in a million ways
For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home!
