New Year, New Adventures

Hello 2015!

I hope you all had a very wonderful 2014! It was a year filled with very high highs and low lows. We are happy to have a fresh start. With every new year comes great intentions, and this year I will try not to be so bad about blogging. Forgive me, but having a now two year old (how did that happen!?!) and a very needy, loving pup makes it hard to find time to document their time. However, 2014 taught me that I need to be better about finding this time.

Carter and Toby (the Instagram and Blog) was an accident of sorts, which I’m sure most of you know by now. I started the Instagram account to have a place to print/share all the photos of C + T together. It’s always been so easy for me to snap a photo and post it. The part I struggled the most with was the blog. Telling their stories has always felt so personal to me and a level of their relationship few get to see.

In 2014, I lost a family member who always shared Carter and Toby’s stories and photos with everyone she met. She was amazing in general, but she had a special talent for documenting her life adventures -which has inspired me to have those same stories to share with Carter and all of you. Now, with that being said, this two-year-old does not live that interesting of a life. He is insanely loved by his family and one very loyal pup.

We spent most of December and the beginning of January apart or separated (especially Carter from Toby). It was sad seeing how upset Carter and Toby would get being separated, but watching them being reunited was like watching them run through a sunny field of flowers into each other’s arms…. Ok, not exactly, but close.

I’m excited for what 2015 has in store! There will be more time spent as a family now that Jake a.k.a. Daddy is finished with his Masters Degree. We plan to travel more as a family (this includes taking our furry baby along). Lastly, we will continue to help animals in need.

Cheers to the New Year and to great friends!
