Start The Party with Pooch Party Packs

Disclosure: I was provided a box from Pooch Party Packs in exchange for a review. However, all opinions in this post are my own.

For those that don't know (and how do you not!?) Izzy and I spoil our dogs rotten. I mean, they are our babies after all. When Emma turned one earlier this month we went a little overboard making her feel even more loved than she already does, which included gifting her some fun goodies from Pooch Party Packs!

Pooch Party Packs are monthly bundles of totally affordable goodies for our canine buddies. Think about it, these pooches give you unconditional love every single day. So why now throw them a party once a month and show them how much you care?

It's super easy. First you choose the size of the dog (anyone else have little dogs that think they're great big dogs). 

Then you choose the type of plan you want. Either $34.99 for one month, $31.99 per month if you choose the three month plan, and $29.99 per month if you choose the six month plan. Plans automatically renew and you can cancel anytime.

You also get the option of paying an extra $8 per box for a party booster, which adds an extra toy per box. You know, for if you want to really throw a rager of the year for your pups!

As we helped Emma open up her party box we knew we had to involve all three dogs. Even though it's Emma's birth month everyone gets to join in. And there's something for everyone! Roz isn't much into toys but there were also treats in the box, which means that Emma and Monte have been going crazy with the toys and Roscoe gets a few extra treats. It all works out!

If your furry friends love you every single day then what are you waiting for? Sign those puppies (you see what I did there?) up for Pooch Party Packs and I guarantee you they'll be thanking you for years to come!

Year One // Our Wedding Anniversary

Can you believe that a year has already gone by? No, I can't either! 

They say the first year of marriage is the hardest and for us it has been bittersweet. We've had a lot of fun over this past year - 

celebrating Izzy's mom's birthday over the 4th of July
eating out a lot (and drinking lots of beer)
seeing lots of movies
celebrating my brother's marriage to his wonderful wife Gretchen
being together just the two of us for the holidays
staying in a swanky hotel for Valentine's day
working on the house
taking the dogs for lots of walk
our Duluth weekend

We've also had some hard times. 

Marriage is hard work. It's a ton of fun, but it's also incredibly hard. And after one year of being married to Izzy I know that even though sometimes it's not all fun and games it's also so very worth it. Because if I ever had to make a choice between being married to him and not being married to him I know that even during the darkest times life will always be better being married to Izzy. 

Dear Izzy,
We knew from the first moment of our relationship that things would be different for us.
And I think we've always been realistic.
This first year has had ups and downs and I know it hasn't always been easy.
But I want you to know that I'm all in.
If the first year is supposed to be the hardest then I suppose we made it through and we have so many more wonderful years together.
So lets remember the good things, learn from the bad ones
and lets see if we can make this second year of marriage
the best one yet.

I love you with all my heart
