I know, I know - January is almost over already and I'm just now posting about 2016. Well, I finally made it just in the nick of time! There have been many reasons that the start of this new year has been so exciting that I could burst (more on that later!) and other reasons that it's been heartbreaking and frustrating in such a way that I haven't had the energy to post on my sweet blog.
The darkest moment has been the loss of our precious, perfect Callie girl. She went to heaven just before New Year's Eve after valiantly battling cancer for six months, and we miss her every single minute of every single day. I wish I could muster up the strength to write more but thinking about her still just makes me so sad. I did write a lengthy post on Instagram about her life and how much she meant to us, so please hop over to read it if you feel so inclined. We are so grateful for the support we've received from everyone ranging from our family and best friends to the loving staff at the vet and our neighbors. We are surrounded by pet-lovers and that has made this process easier in so many ways; people have related to us and commiserated with us and embraced us during this difficult time.
So, that's my update for now, but I'm looking forward to resuming a normal posting schedule. Stay tuned, friends, and thanks for walking beside me on this journey.
