Veterans Day + The Return to Pet Sitting

Before I dive into this post, I want to say happy Veterans Day and a huge thank you to all of those who have served and are currently serving our country!

You can find a few of my past posts on Veterans Day (including interviews with two special Navy Veterans–my parents!) here and here.

Thanks for your service mom and dad!

Guys, I pet sat last week! I can’t even explain how great it felt to get back to work.

I took a little maternity leave from pet sitting just before Sadie was born and pretty much spent the six weeks after her birth telling Jimmy how much I missed my clients and their pets.

I was able to take one of my longtime client’s pups out for a walk with Sadie in her carrier and it went well! It was a full-circle moment because last time I pet sat with Sadie she was inside of me.

It felt good to get back to something that was second nature for me, if that makes sense. Having a newborn kind of feels like learning a new language in a different country, whereas I know exactly what I’m doing when I’m pet sitting and it has been a passion of mine for a while.

I felt normal and that was lovely! I even managed to film a vlog that day 🙂

Now that I’m back in the swing of pet sitting, I’m also adding back in my usual real estate work for my family’s business.

I definitely foresee some busy days and interesting vlogs and blog posts in the future! I know it’s going to be fun to look back on this transitional time and that’s the cool thing about blog posts and filming vlogs–they’re like a time capsule.

Okay, I’ll end this post here before I get all nostalgic on you 😉

Have you ever took an extended break from something you enjoy?

Do you have any Veterans in your life?
