Today is the best kind of birthday.
Because it’s Sullie’s! To be honest, I didn’t even remember until I got to work this morning and realized the date but luckily I had her with me so I’ve been trying to give her extra love and attention today. And yes…I realize that she has no clue that it’s her birthday but it’s special to me. She’s 7! I cannot believe it. I feel so happy that she’s still healthy, active and sweet as ever.
I took her on a little shopping spree to Pet’s Mart to spoil her with some birthday goodies. She got two new toys, duck and pumpkin treats, a new bone and peanut butter for filling the bone. She says that’s a pretty sweet birthday to her.
Believe it or not this is progress over my former craziness. I used to bake her cakes (which clearly she was thrilled about). 😆 I do have to say that I’ve never thrown her a party though. I do draw the line somewhere.
I’ve been teaching a lot of yoga and CrossFit this week. I have had to sub a lot because so many people are out for the holiday week. I am NOT complaining about this though. If I could pick one thing to spend my days doing it would be teaching. I have had several people ask why I continue to teach yoga classes outside of my full-time job when my schedule is so jam-packed but I have to. You know that talk we had about sustainability? Well, practicing and teaching yoga is one of the biggest sustaining forces in my life.
I grabbed breakfast at Whole Foods on my way in to teach CrossFit this morning. Coffee and a giant smoothie. I went for the 24-ounce Double Green today.
It’s been so rainy and gray in Charlotte all week so I stopped at Berrybrook Farm to pick up soup for lunch. They make the best homemade soups. This Inspiration Soup was calling my name. So many of my favorite things!
This was the best soup I’ve had in a really long time. It was perfectly seasoned and generous on the good stuff with so many artichoke hearts.
Okay, I promise I’ll finish the rest of my vacation posts soon! But I had to give love to Sullie today! 🙂
Do you celebrate your pet’s birthday?
