10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week 14


Happy Friday and Welcome to the 10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week Link Up!

Each Friday, Krysten from Why Girls Are Weird, Charlotte, from My Pixie Blog and I host a weekly Friday link up where we reflect on the happy and grateful things in our lives, but more specifically from the last week.


Sometimes all it takes is gentle reminders of things that make us grateful or appreciative. We live in a world full of disaster, chaos, poverty, famine, and tragedy – reflecting on the positive, I personally find makes me more aware and appreciative of the little things.

Don’t you agree?
When adding your blog post link, please remember that this is not a link dump; if it is not an appropriate link, it will be deleted.

I have plenty of things I’m happy and/or grateful for and they are:

1.  Getting together with old friends we haven’t seen in a few years and it’s like nothing has changed whatsoever.  Good times!

2.  This vegan salad from Kupfert & Kim.  So freaking delicious and filling, too!

3.  Farmers’ Markets.  They fool me into believing that it is still summer, though.

4.  Dogs that smile.

5.  Driving around blaring music, windows down and the sun is shining.

6.  Going to lunch by myself to this amazing raw food restaurant.


7. That I JUST discovered iMovie. Lol

8.  Spending time with J in between pet visits and him coming to meet me at places in between. And then the opposite: time alone to think and ponder thoughts and life and wtf.

9. Getting complimentary emails from clients expressing their gratitude for the care I give their pets. It makes it all worth it and makes my heart swell so!!

10. Trying out some new products, such as Cool Whey ice cream, Sevia and kale chips. All very good and filling. Okay, I’m slightly lying about the kale chips but I didn’t throw out the rest in the bag I bought so maybe I’ll go back to them? Lol

What about you? What are you happy or grateful for this week?


I’m heading up north to see my in-laws this weekend and help Jeff set up for the huge action shooting match that’s up north next weekend.  The boys are heading to my mom’s house where they’ll spend the weekend with 6 other dogs.  No doubt they’ll come back plum-tuckered exhausted.

 What about you, what do have YOU got planned for the weekend?

I really hope you have a fantastic weekend whatever it is you end up getting up to! Xo

  • Thanks girl, I’m a sucker for quotes and used to post them all the time but not very often anymore… True words. Let GO.
    You as well, hun. Have fun at the beach this weekend! 🙂

  • It’s always nice to get compliments from my boss but when it comes from clients, it means the world. In this case, it was Stanley, a 16 year old Standard Poodle and he’s got old man bumps and lumps, some on his eye lids and his eyes were so gunky they were sticking together so I just got a warm cloth and sat and wiped his eyes, which he seemed to enjoy AND he was able to open his eyes once again after I was done. I have such a soft spot and patience for old gems. <3
    I'm proud I ate so much good-for-me, delicious food this week. The salad was incredible. Al these healthy things aren't cheap though!!

    I hope you have a great weekend girl! xo

  • All of your food pictures look so good. Mmmm… especially that killer salad!!

    I love that you care so much about your client’s pets — it’s no wonder you have so much repeat business!!

    Were the kale chips good at least or just not filling?

  • I definitely didn’t go to enough farmers markets this year :(. They’re so awesome! I’ll have to see if any in my area are still open for the year.

  • I enjoy lunching on my own as well. 🙂 And, I do love dogs that smile. Enjoy your weekend, lovely girl.

  • I love dogs that smile! And that salad looks delicious. I was craving kale this week and enjoyed munching on kale salads. 🙂

  • All that food looks amazing! Mouthwatering! How kind of your clients sending nice emails! Nothing more rewarding than a good compliment! xxx

  • I knew you would love all the tasty, vegan food. So filling, nutritious and delicious!
    Thanks girl. I really do care, it’s not just another job for me, you know? I sincerely enjoy what I do. 🙂

    Hmm I think it was the texture that I found weird I guess? Maybe I need to try a different flavor… Or maybe it’s not just my cup of tea.

    I hope you’re having a great weekend love!! xO

  • Thank you my sweet. I hope your wasn’t too shabby. 😉 xoxo

  • I know, it was a fail for me this summer, as I only made twice or three times this year. I love all the colours, the fresh produce and all the mom and pop local vendors. Definitely check out your neck of the woods, ours are usually open until thanksgiving or something.

  • I love kale salads, I think I’ll just stick to those instead of the snacking kind that’s trendy.
    I hope you’re having a great weekend Hun!

  • That’s exactly it, mouth watering!
    I was so touched when I got the note. 🙂
