The other day, I changed both my profile picture and cover photo on Facebook to photos of Dustin and I with our one and only, Leon.
To no surprise, several people reached out to me in regards to the sudden change. I’m here to tell you that our sweet guy is still here and living his best life. To be completely transparent, I still have the mindset that he’s not a 13-year old pup. I’m convinced that we have 10+ years left with him because I refuse to believe that one day, he won’t be my shadow anymore. He won’t be at my feet, snoring away while I’m working through the night. He won’t sit and stare at me while I ugly dance and sing around the kitchen and he won’t be there to provide extra snuggles when I’m having a rough day.
This year (November), it’ll be 5 years since we rescued Leon. Anyone who knows us or those who have been following along on social media know that he is our everything.
I want to write and tell more stories about #LifeWithMrLeon because there will come a day where he won’t be here anymore and I know I’ll want to look back at these posts; with a smile on my face and most likely some tears too. He’s our whole world and while it may be silly to say, he’s a huge part of who I am and who we are.
What a beautiful world it would be if people had hearts like dogs.
On a side note, it’s been a little quiet in this corner of the internet, my corner. February and March have been nothing short of chaotic for us. I’m currently trying to stay afloat and I’m still trying to figure out my groove with blogging. In the process of doing so, I’ve come to realize that I definitely want to write and post about more than just my business. There’s more to life than pretty photos and “perfect” moments. I am more than ‘Marla Thach Photography’ and @marlathachphoto. Here’s to real life, here’s to my loved ones, here’s to the good times and moments I never want to forget. Here’s to breaking away from the mindset and the voice in my head telling me that I need to do everything a certain way.
No more of that.
