When I started the blog, I was not sure anyone would read it. That didn’t really matter to me and I guess to a certain extent it shouldn’t matter. I enjoy writing, it calms me. It gives me perspective. I also love Melvin so I thought if peanut butter and jelly worked out so great, then maybe my love of writing and Melvin would also.
It’s peanut butter jelly time! We got not one, but two Liebster Awards this week! And, in total this was our 3rd! Our 1st came from the oh so wonderful Our Waldo Bungie. The second, came from the super charming Mr. & Mrs. & Nola Kisses and the 3rd (whew, my gratitude is wilding overwhelming as I type this all) came from awesomely delightful The Rufus Way!
I. Am. So. Honored! Thank you! I know I’m supposed to pay the award forward, and I promise to do that in an upcoming post but I just want to say that the biggest reward of all is reading about Turk, Rufus 1, Rufus 2 and Nola. About Chick, Dude, Boogie and Zoe. About Oscar, Mr. B, Miss. M, Brutas, Dixie and Boney. There are so many others (please don’t be offended if your sweetie was not named, know that I love reading about them ALL!) and of course about all the fosters who have come and moved on to their furever.
Meeting your wonderful four-legged family members through the word of their human(s) is one of the highlights of the day. Your words are powerful and lovely, so much so that I feel like I know each one of your babies (and you). Should I ever meet them or you in person, I promise treats all around, for your blogs are such a treat to me. I love our little community.
I’m just the mouthpiece, the real star says ‘did someone say treats’?
Great post, congrats!
Congratulations on your award! We just discovered your blog via Emily and “Adventures of a Dog Mom”. Your Melvin looks a lot like my previous boy, Beau and I look forward to digging in to some of your past stories to learn more about him.
And now I have your blog to look forward to!!!
