Meet Mia

Guess what! We adopted a dog over the weekend! Her name is Mia! Mia is a red lab, about a year old, and still very much a puppy. She’s adorable and sweet, but she’s also very vocal and very energetic. I’ll be honest, it’s been a little stressful. I don’t like being barked at. Our last dog, Lulu, rarely…

3 Ways My Off-Week Is Turning Around 

If you haven’t read yesterday’s post, the details of this post won’t mean as much to you. Read it here if you’d like. The gist was that this week has been rough.
