Miss Macie Blue Kelley turns THREE :)

I find it hard now to think back before Miss Macie came into our lives...before I knew the joy she'd bring...before I realized how a sweet puppy could soften the heart just by looking into her eyes.  Truthfully, I didn't think I was "ready" for her.  I tried to find every excuse I could think of, to NOT get her.  I was afraid of the time and dedication it was going to take to train a dog... the potential disruption to our lives that might come from introducing a dog into our little world of two.  And then one Sunday afternoon, on our way home from brunch almost three years ago, something came over me and I told Chad that maybe we should take a detour to Operation Kindness.  You should've seen the look of surprise on Chad's was classic :)...but he'd didn't dare object and we were there in minutes.  Literally, what felt like two seconds later, I fell in love.  She looked so scared. Helpless.  In a room of over-stimulated, BARKING-at-the-top-of their-lungs dogs... she just sat there patiently...waiting... for us (well for ME) to notice the love in her eyes.

Three years later, she's still the sweetest, most lovable puppy you'd ever meet.  We're honored to be her parents..we couldn't have chosen a better addition to our lives.  :) 

Happy Birthday Sweet Girl...
Mommy and Daddy LOVE YOU!!

Heading to the park to play with her doggie friends for her birthday!  :)

stumbled across your blog from YHL, I think. Just wanted to share that your dog Macie and my dog, Ophie, could be long lost sisters (except for the 7 year age difference) -

I'm really enjoying your blog!

Awww... they sure COULD be long lost sisters! What a sweet dog you have! So much love in their eyes dont you think?? Thanks so much for keeping up with us.. I'm really glad you enjoy our blog..keeps me motivated to keep posting! :)

And sorry by the way that this comment thing looks wonky on the bottom of the post...getting in the way of the "you might also like" I mean... I need to figure out how to fix that.

Thanks again for the love! And beautiful pictures by the way on your flickr stream :)

Thanks for the compliment on the pics - and I see you're an Aggie too - gig 'em :)

BTW - my husband and I are foodies and I've been drooling at all of the amazing food you post from your husband's restaurant. I live in Michigan now, but next time my husband and I are in the Dallas area, we may have to stop by and have a meal at the Moth!

Oh my goodness! What a small world! So great to find fellow Ags across the country!! Whoop! :)

Oh and I'm so glad you're enjoying the food shots I've been taking at Chads events too... :) I'm an amateur by all accounts but I'm learning new tricks after every time...just glad I can be a part of the action AND get to eat the tasty food! It's a tough job I'm telling ya! ;)
