an unfortunate request

This is probably one of the hardest, most heartbreaking choices I've had to make. It's been coming for a while now and I may have already even wrote about it but I've never really had commitment to it like I do now. So here it goes...

Many of you know how much I adore my dogs. Marley is my baby girl, she's my family and I love her with all of my heart. She's one of the sweetest, most loving dogs I've met. She will love you the second she meets you and not even think twice about it. Coming home everyday to someone who loves me unconditionally is the best thing I could ever ask for. She owns my heart and she always will.
My life is taking an interesting turn as of late and because of the choices that I've made and the circumstances that these choices have created.... I can no longer provide a loving home for my sweet Marley. And so my friends, here is my request.... I've been working with an adoption agency to find Marley a new home and so far nothing has worked out. I'm not going to lie, I'm pretty picky about who is going to take Marley. She's definitely an indoor dog but loves having access to the outside and she needs a lot of attention and exercise. So if you know of anyone who would be interested in her under those circumstances and would love her with all their heart, send them my way.
Thank you friends.

Here is her information...

American Eskimo
2.5-3 years old
18 lbs
House trained
If you'd like more information on her personality, energy, behavior, etc... contact me.


a joyful find

Here's the deal.
I can never find clothes at clothing stores that I actually like or are modest enough for me to wear. I would much rather sew my clothes how I like them.... but... there is no good apparel fabric anywhere. I have internet searched and fabric store searched and everything searched and I can never find anything worth buying (well, besides Anthropologie fabric... but $88/yard? ya right.)
I just found this website and my heart is so joyful it could dance. Actually, it is dancing. All over the place like a maniac. And the pricing isn't half bad.

Okay but seriously... today is the best day.
You're welcome sewing peeps.



*Cough cough*


Listening? Great. I have an announcement to make.

I am still alive.
That is all.

Haha, just kidding!
I'll post a little more for you Nes ;)
I saw this video on KSL and I really liked it. It's definitely worth your time to watch. Agency is a beautiful gift that we fought for and this a great example of how we can use it.
