This one is to all the mothers out there. The ones who carried us in their wombs, and the ones who didn’t but love us like they did. The ones who wiped our tears, and the ones who cleaned our scrapes and bruises. The ones who cheered us on from the sidelines, and the ones who led the carpool to soccer practice. The ones who disciplined us in love, and the ones who pushed us to be our best. I see you, moms, shopping in our store. We see your love for us even in that simple task. The way you cajole your teary child in the fitting room, or the way you hold your little one’s hand as you wander around the store. I hear your love when you call over to the toy area to check in on your child, who plays happily while you shop. Your love for your children is tangible, even in those small ways.
One of the perks of working for a locally owned shop is that you get to actually know your bosses. Danielle and Christi, the Hunni twins and mastermind behind the shop, are the sweetest bosses a girl could ask for. It’s not unusual for them to pop into the store and ask for our Starbucks orders, or for them to comment on our Instagram posts. Danielle even knows that I have an obsession with her Boston Terriers, and she’ll bring them by just so I can cuddle them. Job perk? I think so.
Today is Danielle and Christi’s birthday! We think they deserve to be celebrated, so we’ve dedicated this entire blog post to them. They met me for coffee and answered all of the classic “twin” questions, and more.
Visiting the Langley Animal Protection Society is always such a treat for us – of course it’s fun to play and cuddle with the animals and get to know a little of their personalities. With that being said, it’s always slightly heartbreaking to hear the stories of how & why each animal ended up at LAPS, from being found as strays to being given up by families, every animal has their own story. What each pet has in common is their desire to be loved and to find their forever homes. If you’re interested in any of the animals below please give LAPS a call at 604.857.5055 and maybe you can bring home a new furry friend this holiday season!
Last week we stopped by the Langley Animal Protection Society to meet some new furry faces. Here are some photos from the day. All the animals photographed are up for adoption – click their name to find out more!
Photoshoots are always fun, but when you throw cute animals into the mix the laughter never stops!
