There are times in life where I just need to know I’m not alone… anyone else? Ryan and I have no kids, and two (fairly) quiet dogs… so I leave the TV on during the days Ryan works so I at least have some noise in the house. If you know me at all you know I’m a sanguine by nature… outgoing, confident, optimistic and generally cheerful. So naturally there are days where the loneliness just gets to me… and I start talking to Schroeder… my dog. Luckily! I found out that I’m not alone… I got together with one of my favorite wedding planners for coffee today (the lovely, talented and modernistically amazing Heather Gear). And we couldn’t be more alike if we planned it… she talks to her cat too.
There are times we just need a reality check. Times when we realize that we’re not alone and that other people go through the same things that we do… maybe not exactly at the same time, but at least they can empathize. But through everything that’s happened this week I had to facepalm myself and wake up. I’m not alone. I don’t have to be so brave all the time. And I have friends… wonderful, amazing, show up to the hospital at 5:30am friends. And I can talk to my dog… because really… how could I not talk to this adorable face?
