Ladies and Gents, Meet Patton. Project Pat is the newest addition to our little family. He’s exciting and loves to play, but is also the MOST laid back dog I have ever met. We think he is somewhere in between 4 and 5 years old. He fits right in with Casey and me and we are so happy to have him. We first mentioned getting a dog last summer. We knew we were moving into a house with a yard and I knew that I needed a buddy to keep me company at the LU Studio all day. We decided it was a perfect time to start looking for the right pup for us. Casey, though, happens to be allergic to 99% of all dogs. It was decided that we must have a dog that was just like the dog C grew up with, a schnauzer. I was dying for a giant, but in our little one bedroom a miniature just worked out better. We definitely wanted to rescue a dog, so we found Schnauzer Love Rescue in Birmingham, AL. Their list of available pets included P, but with our imminent plans to be in Ecuador for a month pushed back our looking. Well, when plans changed and we stayed in the country, we immediately decided to pursue Pitty Pat. Within two weeks he was ours and will always be our little guy. He’s one of the best things about us now and we would not have it any other way. We always had a sweet spot for adopting a pet, but knew that we had to search for a specific kind. SLR was absolutely amazing and incredibly thorough. We appreciate the time and effort they put into finding the perfect home for Patton. We recommend them any day! He’s with us every where we go, so one can only assume he’ll meet everyone we know! Have a wonderful weekend. Happy Friday!
Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you Self Portrait Friday, the Boston, Mass. Edition! The last week in October, Casey and I had the wonderful opportunity to go on a little trip with our dear friends (and photographers), Stephanie and Juan Carlos Barcia. There are so many great photos and stories from that trip that I can’t wait to share, but I just wanted to start off a great weekend with this lovely shot! We just couldn’t resist after a blistering morning walking through the apple orchard. More to come later! Happy Friday everyone! I hope your weekend brings you rest and joy! Enjoy!
