    I stumbled across your blog the other day on bloglovin’ and I am totally in love! I just started seriously blogging and named my blog after my golden retriever pup and was thrilled to stumble across another blogger with a similar foundation. I told my husband about the 101 in 1001 idea and we thought it would be a fun idea for us to do and complete before we settle down and start a family beyond our furchild! I’ll definitely link your blog up as inspiration! Thanks!
