I started the month with probably my roughest birthday ever (a combo of being super sleep deprived, up all night worrying about a sick pup, and work stress). I basically spent the day crying. It happens. This was the month that Tumbles began to become self-sufficient enough for me to do some normal hobbies again (eg. cook dinner occasionally!). Also, there was a corgi beach meetup and Halloween!
Tumbles met her half brother, Linus!
A post-beach bath :(
(We dressed up as each other.)
I took my first trip home to Tennessee (where I grew up) in three years. I got to bring Tumbles along! Then suddenly it was the holiday season.
Ready for her first flight!
Meeting my family's dogs for the first time.
Tumbles saw her first fall and (sort of) winter in Tennessee.
Visiting the library where my mom works.
She loved snow.
Tum + my sister Hannah.
YESSSS. Pulled pork sandwich and sweet tea.
Pretty east Tennessee.
Post-Thanksgiving dinner food comas.
I bought myself a fancy new raincoat just in time for some major rainy weather (I'm still in love with it).
I started getting pumped for Christmas as soon as Thanksgiving ended.
Corgi playdates. Parties and get-togethers and houseguests and holidays. I sent my first ever holiday cards! Also lots of food.
(the card is from minted - it was a pretty painless first Christmas card experience! highly recommend.)
(these are all for Tumbles)
New years eve:
The good stuff.
