WEBSITE UPDATE

The Future HHB

The Future HHB

Hi friends!  I am really excited to announce that within the next month or so I will be introducing you all to a brand new website!  I am SO excited! This blog has served me well for almost two years (which is CRAZY to think about), but I am ready to upgrade to a more polished vibe.  I have a super awesome site designer that I have been working with, and I just love her creativity and imagination.  Can't wait for the final project!

Thus far it has been mostly me determining what I want the future look of The HHB to be like. I had a really hard time deciding on colors and fonts, mainly because of how many options are out there.  Seriously, like a bajillion!  I did the numbers.  HA!  So, I did what I do best: made a list!  I came up with all of the styles, colors, fonts, and layouts that I love, then I brainstormed on what I wanted to feel when I came to the new site.  When it came to what I wanted to feel, I came up with this:

Now, I could really use some feedback...

Please feel free to comment or email any ideas of feedback!  In the next few weeks I will share some more of the process and a few sneak peeks.  I really appreciate all of the love and support, and can't wait to hear your input!

MY DOG LIVES INTUITIVELY

Happy Friday, friends!  Did this week completely zoom by, or was it just me?  I swear it was Monday like five minutes ago! photo 4Silly title, right?  Well, the more time I spend with my pup Charlie (AKA the best dog companion friend in the world), the more I realize that he is so freaking smart.  Yes, I know most dog owners say that about their canine, but really, IT'S TRUE!  HA!  In fact, I think dog's in general are so intuitive, and today I am here to share why!

photo 1HE IS NOT MOTIVATED BY FOOD

Sure, he eat's to live, but he most certainly does not live to eat.  Charlie enjoys his food, and eats calmly.  He won't try to impress us, beg, or anything else, and only eats when his body alerts him to.  Also, he knows what he likes, and what he doesn't like, and doesn't eat food just because it is there.  Such an intuitive eater!

photo 4HE LOVES TO MOVE HIS BODY

Charlie LOVES to go on walks!  He enjoys the fresh air, is always on the lookout for other dogs and squirrels, and when he is done, HE'S DONE!

photo 3HE LET'S THE PAST GO, AND LIVES PRESENTLY

We don't know how Charlie ended up at the Humane Society, but it's hard to believe how anyone could let him go (or any animal for that matter).  He has clearly done some forgiveness work, because when Charlie is with us, he is 100% in the moment.  We're simply grateful for his journey, because it allowed us all to be together.

photo 3ABOVE ALL ELSE, HE VALUES LOVE

This snuggle monster is such a lover!  His favorite thing in the world is to be with Greg and I (side note: I swear I have photos of Greg and Charlie, but they are either blurry or not wanting to upload), either on the couch, in the car, on a walk, etc.  At first I thought it was abandonment issues, and it very well may be, but then I realized that he just really adores us.  The feeling is obviously mutual.  :)

photo 2Now, the questions that I am taking with me into the day is, how can I be more like Charlie?  How can we all be more loving, kind, and present with one another?  I'd love to hear your answers!

Have a fantastic weekend!

P.S. Wasn't this a great reason to share a ton of photos of him?!  HA!

 

 

CHECKING-IN

Good morning, and Happy Friday!  This is just a quick check-in to let you know that I have had an insanely busy, albeit awesome, week, and I decided to take a few days off from blogging this past week.  I'll be back Monday (which is also the first day of autumn!!!), and we'll pick up from there.  How does that sound? 84543-Lifes-Short-Spend-It-HappyI hope you all have a beautiful weekend!
