Hello All,

My name is Nicole, I live in the great state of Florida and I am the creator of this blog about my dog Lily. A little about me, I was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey and when I was about six years old my family moved down to the west coast of Florida. It took me a long to warm up to the state, though the hot summers are still hard sometimes, but Florida has some wonderful things to offer.

I did take a short four year break in August of 2013 when I moved to Phoenix, Arizona for a new adventure. I must admit Arizona has some wonderful places to visit that should definitely be on your must see list. And though I did start to miss my family, hence why I moved back to Florida, I did gain one wonderful thing from Arizona and that is my wonderful fur-baby Lily.

Lily and I met during my time volunteering at Arizona Animal Welfare League (AAWL). The AAWL is such an amazing organization with hundreds of volunteers. Plus it is Arizona’s first no kill shelter, another HUGE plus in my book. Anyways I would often sit with the dogs in their kennels and read to them. Really anything to spend time with them. One day I saw Lily and my heart melted, somehow I was always drawn towards the more shy and scared dogs. And she was definitely shy. Over the course of the next three hours I sat with her. But eventually I had to leave, and it was so hard. I went home that night and all I thought about was Lily and that she belonged in my family. Two days later when the shelter was open I went back and made her a member of my family. This was April of 2016. And ever since then we have had so much fun together. That is why I created this blog. I wanted to created something where ideas could be shared and new experiences could be learned and along the way we are going to have a lot of fun.

I hope you all will enjoy this and share in our journey together. We also want to hear about your journey with your pets. What type of pet do you have? How did you meet? And what type of things do you do together?

We look forward to hearing from you all!
