the important stuff

there's that dang dog again
You know when you come home from a long day and feel nothing?
Numbness from the job.
Weariness from all the work.

Then you step inside your home.
That oh-so-wonderful safe, comforting, non-judgmental home.
And you see this.
And this.
And all seems right again.

And just when you start thinking that life is kind of hard ...
you go to work the next morning (this morning) and see this.

And you know it's going to be a good day.

  5. That dang dog? my life is not the same without a glimpse of that dog, or your words, or your world.

    Today will be better? Wanna know how I know? Because I am full of it.

    1. Isn't it great that we are fortunate enough to have homes that we love to go to? I used to think everyone felt that way...and then I taught teenagers. Count your blessings.

  10. Awe, this made me happy, happy for you - because I know that feeling and I hate that feeling, but doggies, wine (especially wine) hubbies and rainbows do make everything better.

  15. Work is just a temporary thought to me. I walk out and don't give it another thought. And to see what my life really is when I walk through that door makes me happy. Then I look around and see the disaster my husband, kid and dogs have created, then the wine is necessary.

  16. I LOVE this post so much. I feel that way every day when I come home, I could have written this myself :) Coziness and love all wrapped up in a home, at its best.

  17. One of the great things about having a sweet little {or big sometimes in our cases} pup, is that they're always glad to see you no matter what kind of day you've had! And the wine? Well the wine always helps to end the night on a high note ;)

    Happy Wednesday!

  22. I loved this post -- probably because it's so true! Nothing like coming home after a long and less than great day, to people (and dogs!) who love you and don't have to do much to instantly comfort you! xo

  27. Gosh there really is nothing better than a picture of you and the one you love, a glass of wine (I'm guessing), and your pup. It makes the long day of work worth while- I'm sure.
