Last year, I wrote a funny little letter to Noodle in celebration of his adoption anniversary… and decided to make it a tradition… oh, and to throw him a party!
Darling Noodie boy,
I’m having a hard time believing it’s been only 2 years. You’re such a permanent part of my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Your quirkiness, energy, and sheer bliss for life make me feel like a happier person on a daily basis. Nothing beats the excitement you exude when I walk through the door… even when I’ve only been gone for 15 minutes. Your love is perfect and charming and comforting.
Speaking of comforting… your intoxicating dog smell. I could bury my nose in your armpits any time of day and love it. Just a wiff of the ‘good smells’ and I already feel calmer and more grounded. I guess what I’m saying is that having you in my life has given me more of a sense of being grounded… almost like that feeling of home. You’re a part of my home, my family and I am so grateful to have you in my life, you tiny weirdo.
Stay weird, stay cute. Mama loves you, Noodie boy.
p.s. we decided to throw a DIY party in the studio — check out how to make your own here!
