Holiday Heart

Did you gorge yourself as much as I did this past Thanksgiving? I’ll admit, I was a bit of a downer–my dog went missing the day before and sadly is still missing. We are on Winnie Watch, and even sent out a Pet Amber Alert for her (didn’t know they had those!). Fingers crossed and hearts open that she comes back to us safe and sound.

Missing dog aside, I do have a lot to be thankful for this year, and one of those things is you guys. Without you, I wouldn’t be writing this blog. I’d probably be jotting mad thoughts in a diary only to forget about it and never finish them (like all of my diaries of childhood). So thank you for being there–for being so supportive–in commenting, sharing, twitter-ing, and facebook-ing. You’re wonderful and I feel like I’ve gotten to know so many of you regulars. I’m blessed to have you as a part of my life.

    So sorry to hear about your dog! I think I’d die if something like that happened to my sweetheart.
    You look beautiful – really like the cardigan. And those lights outside your house look pretty and instantly put me in a festive mood. :)

    Oh, so sorry. I have two dogs I love. Can’t even imagine how I would feel about that. I love that sweater over the shirt. You look very nice.

  • Melanie

    Aww I’m sorry to hear about your dog. I have a dog, too, so I can imagine how it feels! Keeping you and your little Winnie in my thoughts and prayers!

    I hope you find her soon! You can tell you aren’t really into the pics, mind with Winnie? You look fabulous as usual. Good luck finding your furry baby!

  • Style Me Thrifty

    I’m sending positive thoughts your way! I had a cat run away once — she was spotted 7 days later only a few blocks from the house. It was the huge posters hanging around the neighborhood that helped. (And Happy Thanksgiving!)

    I’m not sure what part of Houston you live in, but my neighborhood (Braeswood Place/ West University) has a person to contact for lost pets and he sends out emails with the lost pet info. If you are anywhere close by send him an email. He is amazing and works tirelessly to help reunite lost pets. TIm Hebert: Email me if you want more info or his phone number.

    I hope WInnie is home soon.

    So sorry that your Winnie is still missing. I’m hoping and praying someone calls you soon with info!

  • Franziska

    We think that my boyfriend actually does have “Holiday Heart” – he gets intense heart palpitations after a night of drinking so he has to cut alcohol out of his life. I had never heard of it before until he finally read it in one of his USMLE study books haha.

    I hope your dear pup comes back to you soon. I couldn’t even imagine :(
