Supporting local and handmade artisans is always something I will value – theres more heart and authenticity involved. I love my pup and animals are a responsibility so I try my best to learn about how to take care of my own, what is healthy, what is essential. I want to make her doggy life as happy and healthy as I possibly can.

This gift guide is centered around our animal companions. I have a little Shih Tzu named Mimi who is the joy of my life and consistently inspires me to be a better person and especially embrace that pesky concept called responsibility. If you are lucky to have a animal companion hopefully this will inspire you to reach out and give them a little gift to cherish their presence in your life. The items I chose vary from ethically obtained, USA made or support no-kill animal shelters.
And if you are considering to get a animal companion I could endlessly emphasize the importance of adopting from shelters and giving an animal a forever home. For more info check out Best Friends Animal Society you can also sponsor animals at wonderful sanctuaries/rescues such as Woodstock Animal Sanctuary or Nowzad

With the new years comes the desire from resolutions goals, things to overcome in the new year. Though I have written a bit about what I would like the new year to bring, but I think it is a good to have dreams and I like to think of goals as a paper ship ride, not fully knowing where you will go but eventually, you will reach land. And that is important. To journey and have a vision (or several) and see where the wind will take you.
This year I would like to
1. Harvest a garden. I want wildflowers, herbs and maybe a small lemon tree
2. Explore more of California, and have more adventures in general, make new friendships
3. Journal more. I admire people who at the end of the year have heavily filled journals
4. Write down every bit of inspiration, vision and dream
5. Tackle new knitting techniques, as daunting or intimidating as it may seem
6. Collect more treasures and old books
7. Focus more on my darling pen pals/packages
8. Join a workshop, any kind, at least once this year
9. My goal this year is to read 60 books.
10. Improve my health organically, holistically. blogs I love : Brit, Sarah and Keeper of the Home
11. Document more, I used to be someone who took photos and captured memories, I haven’t done that in years, I want to return to collecting memories
I have more but I’ll keep this one short!
