A Dog is for Life | Adopting a Rescue

I have always been a huge lover of dogs, and grew up with a black Labrador. She was quite crazy and a little naughty – being so young and inexperienced, I realise now she probably didn’t get the training that she needed. Sadly we had to say goodbye to her in 2014, and life has always seemed a little emptier since. Coming home isn’t as exciting without a little four legged friend to greet you as you walk through the door.

You may know from my previous posts that I love Disney, so visiting the first ever park was such an incredible experience. I’ll write a blog post all about this (and maybe show you some of the things that I bought) soon, but for now I want to focus on what I found was the highlight of my trip: San Francisco.
