If you’ve been following along on instagram and instagram stories lately, you probably saw all sorts of craziness going on with Jackson. First he was incredibly sick, then diagnosed with leptospirosis, then transferred between three vet hospitals, and finally back home after a week. It was a mess. But now that he’s back home and doing better than ever, I’ve been able to reflect on how thankful I am to still have him in my life. And it’s honestly put a lot of things in perspective. I use to dread the holidays and they gave me a ton of anxiety. But now that Jackson is back home, I look at our Christmas tree daily and I’m so grateful to have another holiday with him. And hopefully many, many more.

And since we have family coming in to town today, I’m excited spend the next few days with all the people I love the most. Jackson, my parents, my MIL, SIL, and BIL, and of course, my husband. Last week reminded me that life will throw you curve balls and you never know what tomorrow holds so every day should be cherished. Every day should be filled with puppy kisses and long walks together, and every day should be celebrated. Especially around the holidays when we are lucky enough to see some of the people we don’t see often enough.

And instead of playing dress up this holiday season, I’m keeping it casual and extra cozy so not only can I cuddle with Jackson at any moment, but I can take him on any walk he wants, no matter how the temperature changes. Plus I’m ready to bundle up on the couch at any moment to watch a million Christmas movies. And since Express has a ton of comfy looks to choose from, I’ve loaded up on some of my favorites to wear throughout the week like this grey oversized sweatshirt and cozy teddy coat. I bought this sweatshirt in black last season and was so excited to find it back in stock this year since it’s a sweatshirt I wear every single week.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

    So glad to see his happy squishy face!!! Loved the podcast about him…I laughed–I cried. Love the picture you added on here where his butt is facing the camera —LOL

  2. The Christmas season always gives me anxiety and puts me in a dark mood. I’m not sure how to get past it. I have two little ones that I try to keep my spirits up for, but I struggle. Any suggestions on perking myself up?

    1. for me, it’s reminding myself how lucky i am to have the life that i do. to have the people i love so much in my lives, to have the health i have, and to be physically able to do the things i want. i have a lot to be thankful for and that’s what i have to remind myself. we also don’t really do presents much anymore and that helps. but also online shopping so i don’t have to deal with many crowds and reminding myself to go with the flow during holiday events. it’s still a struggle for me for sure, but all this has definitely helped with my own spirits

  3. What pet insurance did you buy for Jackson? I am comparing pet insurances for my big guy right now and it’s soooo overwhelming!
