Friday Favorites: Happy 10th Birthday Abby

On Wednesday it was Abby’s 10th birthday!


I cannot believe that my baby girl is 10 years old.


And looking at her, you would have no idea! She always has a toy in her mouth. Can still run without skipping a beat. And has never lost her puppy energy!

In honor of her birthday, (and because it’s Friday!), I put together a little list of my favorite things Abby reminds me of every day.

#1. Keep begging. You never know when all your perseverance will pay off.


and how cute is this “Pup-kin” spiced latte treat cup? Laura sent it for Abby’s birthday. Adorable.

#2. Enjoy the little things. A new toy. Licking Luke’s leftovers. An extra belly scratch. Chasing wild turkeys. Laying in the sunshine.


#3. Your never too old to snuggle.


#4. There is always room on the couch for one more.


#5. Eat every meal like it’s your last.

#6. Any run where you can be off leash is a great one.


Usually that means we are on an awesome trail in the woods away from busy roads and people and those are some of the best runs.

Happy Birthday to my first baby!!


And happy Friday to you!! Any plans for the weekend?

Linking up with Heather and Claire this week!
