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.

    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!)-Madeline

    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. 🙂

    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.

    oh no! I hope Winnie is found! My sister’s dog went missing two years ago and broke our family’s heart that she was never found

    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 🙁

    I am sorry to hear about Winnie. I hope you find her soon… I love your top but I think your jeans can also be paired with an all over printed shirt.
