happy birthday, Jimmy!

Hi, everybody! I wanted to start writing here again; I miss it so much. I said I was gonna start writing at the beginning of the year, but bam, it’s now mid February already!

Anyway, what better way to make a come back on my little corner of the internet than to show you the celebration we did for my dog’s 6th birthday. We love Jimmy so much. He was a bit crazy the first years, but now he’s more calm and is so friendly. We put up decorations, got him a cake, and sang him happy birthday.

I think his favorite part was jumping to reach the balloons we hung from the tree– especially that red one!

We got him a cake from a local barkery, June Bug’s Barkery (get it? dog bakery, but they bark so bark-ery, hah!)

We tried to snap a photo of him next to his cake, but he went in for a bite before my sister could even put it down! At least he liked it!

If you didn’t know, I have a lot of dogs (six, to be exact), and I tend to foster some for a wonderful organization, pets alive laredo. My dogs were guests at Jimmy’s paw-ty, so I decided to photograph them too.

Meet: Cake the mini poodle, Angie the chihuahua, Tallulah the chi-weenie, Max the pug, and Franklin the french bulldog.

I just adopted Franklin last month. He’s 5, kinda blindy, and so chunky. I got to take this photo of him eating his cake. It was so funny! His crooked teeth and a big piece of cake!

I hope you enjoyed this post. I loved that my family is as crazy as me about animals and went along with his party.

I promise to keep uploading more posts. I already have some in mind! Feel free to follow my blog to keep seeing my four-legged babies and my adventures (that aren’t all that adventurous, haha). I’m also going to start sharing more about me, since I sometimes feel I just started this blog, but people from the internet who aren’t close to me don’t really know who I am. Also, a lot of things in my life happened recently, so I wanna talk about those too, briefly.

For now, have a very nice Tuesday!! <3

we were talking and eating pizza.

we were talking about the space between us all, and the people who hide themselves behind a wall of illusion. never glimpse the truth, then it’s far too late when they pass away.

we were talking about the love we all could share. when we find it, to try our best to hold it there with our love.

with our love we could save the world. if they only knew..

we were talking about the love that’s gone so cold. and the people who gain the world and lose their soul. they don’t know. they can’t see. are you one of them?

when you’ve seen beyond yourself then you may find peace of mind is waiting there.

and the time will come when you see we’re all one, and life flows on within you and without you.

strong words by the beatles. but they kind of fit the sort of thing we need right now in this world, don’t you think? coming together, understanding each other, engaging in conversation, having a delicious pizza cuz why not. no, but seriously. november has been kind of rough, but with love and unity we can do anything.

p.s. thank you for always letting me take pictures of your faces, david and didi.

a happy list, by didi

Wow, I hadn’t shared much here lately. I always do this. I never like it. And I don’t do it on purpose. I just sometimes don’t know what to write or when to post things. I don’t want to post things for the heck of it. I want them to come naturally, you know? But I’m back and excited to write and share little adventures.

Anyway, I hope you are all well. I am here today to share with you guys a happy list that my very close friend Daniela (we call her Didi) wrote. Here are

10 things that make didi happy:

· the smell of books, both old and new.

· when people play with my hair.

· rollercoasters.

· cold days that are perfect for hot chocolate.

· writing. i love to write fiction stories.

· to be waken up by my dogs.

· playing the ukulele.

· spending time with my friends.

· watching silly cartoons, because one is never too old for cartoons.

· listening to music. mostly music that makes me want to dance.

 

 

I love these lists. They make my day. If you would like to share a list of things that make you happy, send it to me and I will post it here.

I hope you have an amazing day. I have more posts lined up that I would love to share and hopefully you will love to read. Thanks for stopping by! And thank you, didi, for your happy list. <3

i was planning on writing something original and meaningful to explain to you how much you mean to me. but i couldn’t find words that illustrated just that. i also didn’t know where to begin. we have a lot of history. just know that i love you always– even when i’m grumpy.

and i wrote this in my blog because i am still that silly teen you met years ago that loves you and likes to scream from the rooftops how much she does and how happy she is to be by your side.

te quiero flaco,

diana + the piggies.

 

a happy list, by daniella

hi friends! i hope you’re enjoying your weekend, and if you’re in the US i hope you enjoy your labor day! we’re having a little bit of rain so I decided to share a happy list my friend daniella wrote, since it fits this weather. so calm.

i met daniella in high school, and she’s one of the few people i’ve kept up with. she is so fun to be around. she’s also really understanding. whenever i have something on my mind, i go to her because she listens and doesn’t judge. in fact, most of the time we agree on a lot of things.

we could all use a happy list once in a while. so, here are…

10 things that make daniella happy:

10. Any Lush product in existence.

9. Beautiful music. Any kind.

8. Beautiful souls. Old souls. Wise souls.

7. Pictures. You cannot remember all the little moments. They trigger a memory and take you to that moment in time.

6. Tolerance. It’s something we, as a whole, need to work on.

5. Sincerity. Especially from strangers. It shows their character.

4. My grandma and crazy mexican family. It truly is like a novela.

3. Marijuana. For medicinal purposes.

2. Reading. Poetry, Novels, Anything. Nothing is more calming than a good book.

1. My relentless tenacity. My life with severe depression and anxiety feels hopeless sometimes. But I’ve somehow never stopped fighting.
