it's been a long time since i updated everyone on little elliott and our life together. she turns a year old this week which is pretty much the most awesome thing to me. it's been such a wild year and having her around has been absolutely fantastic.

you know, you tell yourself for years that you want a dog, but there's nothing that can prepare you for living with a puppy. it's exhausting. and frustrating. and there's days where you wonder how many more times you can take your new friend stepping in their poop and then pouncing all over you. because really, no one wants poop covered paw prints on their clothes. or their house for that matter. people in your life get jealous that there's no longer time for them and you become envious of people who have time at all. and it's mildly frustrating when the shoes you wanted to wear are torn up on your living room floor. and yet, it's worth all of it.

spazmatazz has mellowed out a lot over the last few months. she still gets her ass beat by el gato diego. she still loves to shred anything she can get her little mouth around to pieces. and she still has more energy in one day then i do in one month. but she's grown into a charming little creature who i absolutely adore endlessly and wouldn't trade for anything in the world.

happy birthday little one. love, mama.
