A Happy Heart

In the past 48 hours, I flew up to Bend, met my parents' new puppy, saw lots of snow, spent 17 hours in a car driving from Oregon down to Southern CA, and now have my parents living 5 blocks away from me on Balboa Island. I've been waiting for this weekend for months now and feel like my heart may have expanded 4 sizes because of all the love and excitement. The little pup is the sweetest little guy ever, and despite the crazy long car ride, having my parents so close is kind of a dream come true for me.  

this is Winston!! he's seriously the best

  13. Ok, I know I'm a little late, but this is the best news ever! I know how close you are to your parents, so I know this is a big deal. Congrats lady :)

    And omg, the pup, so cute!

  14. OKAY. WHAT. i am DYINGGG over these pictures. i have wanted a puppy since the day i was born, i swear, but my husband and i have been going through our masters programs and living in housing that doesn't allow pets. which means i have to wait longer.... nooooo. BUT, i've been convinced that a cavalier king charles spaniel would be PERFECT for us. these photos sealed the deal. august come quick!!!!!!!!!
