The Ones Who Live There

So, I realized that I have been having so much fun posting things I want to do to my house, I haven't really gone into the people who habitat it. So, let me take the time and introduce you to us:

Boyfriend and I had an unconvential start to our relationship, but we've helped each other grow and have stuck together through thick and thin. We have been with each other for 5 1/2 years, and really feel that we are just tapping the best times of our relationship.

When we met, we both lived in Utah. I was there for school, and he had just moved back from Hawaii. Due to some living complications, we ended up moving in with each other pretty quickly with some of our friends.

One of our roommates was a dog breeder, and we absolutely loved the mom, Honey. She was a honey brown colored Red Nose Pitbull. The dog she mated with was a blonde huge puppy like American Pitbull Titan.

One of the puppies had been owned by a few different family members and friends.

Aphrodite is one of the most caring, loving dogs we had ever met and we fell in love with her immediately, even before she was ours. We ended up pet sitting her often, and when her owner couldn't keep her anymore, we immediately took her in and gave her a permanent home. 

She is truly the goddess of love. Her favorite things in the world are cuddling and fetch. 

Before we had thought that we could have Dittie as our own, we had put a payment on a new puppy from the batch that Honey was going to have. So came along Spade.

When Spade was just a little puppy (like 1st picture status) we moved to California, aka, my home.

When we were in our first apartment out here, we, the obvious animal lovers we are, decided we needed a Kitten. So when our neighbors cat got pregnant and they were giving away kittens, we picked out Hendrix when he was only 2 hours old. He was such a cutie, and quickly was adopted by the girls as "their pet". Seriously, he thinks he's part dog. LOL!

It has been a wonderful journey, and boyfriend and I couldn't be happier with where we've ended up. We're excited that a new part of our journey together is just beginning too. 
Boyfriend has been offered a position in his company as an Jr. Engineer, and will be going back to school to for his engineering degree to continue to move up. 
As for me, I currently work as a Property Manager at a Real Estate Company. I plan on saving up to retake my test to get my Real Estate License, but that is to help my finances while I'm in school. I just started school again, after like 5 years or so. I'm going to pursue a passion that I've had since I was a child and have decided to study Ethology, which is the branch of Zoology that studies Animal Behavior. I've wanted to work with wild animals since I was a child, but kind of lost track of my dreams. I'm excited to be continuing with them. 

As you can see, we've approached very exciting times in our lives, and I'm excited to be announcing accomplishments that we have, apart from our new awesome place, that we can finally call home.
