Penny loves the city!

Howdy! Look at me, I'm on a roll!

I mentioned in my first post that I was going to keep my location secret for privacy reasons. But a lot of the post ideas I've had involve different places around the city, which would definitely give it away! So I have added a map at the bottom of my page of the best little city there is, Halifax, Nova Scotia! ❤

Now, on to our topic, the love of my life! This is my puppy, Penny.

Penny is my 1.5 year old Shih Tzu, and we've been through a lot together! She moved with me into my first apartment back home, and then made the big trip with me to Halifax. And let me tell you, she loves it here!

I think some people would disagree, but this city is actually really dog friendly. There are a lot of stores that allow dogs inside now, and we go shopping all the time! So far we have tried out Canadian Tire and HomeSense, and looking forward to checking out Chapters and Michael's!

Penny can be a vicious creature sometimes, but I wouldn't have it any other way! I've definitely learned a lot of lessons since she came into my life! Tell me about your pets in the comments!

Until next time,

Liv 🙂

Stop Comparing and Start Living

Have you ever compared yourself, and where you are in life, to others? Has it made you feel pretty bummed? This is a major struggle I’m facing right now. I’m 25, and I don’t have a house, I don’t have a boyfriend, and basically I don’t fully have my shit together yet. So for the past few days I’ve really been working hard to try and put things into perspective. 

There is always going to be a time where someone has more, or better things in life. It doesn’t matter what I do. All I need to do is think really hard about what is important to me, and go from there. I may not have a house. But right now I’m sitting on my balcony with my freshly planted flowers and carefully hung twinkle lights, writing this while my puppy sleeps beside me. I may not have a boyfriend, but I have some of the best friends a girl could ask for. I may not have my financial situation fully together, but I’ve been on some of the most amazing trips and had the best experiences. If that’s what makes me happy, then I need to stop comparing, and start living!

If you’re reading this and it’s ringing a bell, I’d love to hear how you deal with this struggle, in the comments below!

Until next time,

Liv
