I just wanted to take today to thank everyone who reached out yesterday for your sweet words of condolence. It’s been a very heavyhearted week but each kind message I saw coming through on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and here on the blog meant the world to me. It’s so incredible to also see how Bailey touched so many people’s lives – he was truly the most special, loving and warmhearted dog in the world, and even to those who never met him, it seems like those amazing qualities became apparent to everyone. He was my most beautiful, sweet baby.
I don’t really feel like doing much these days but sometimes, I think you need to just fake it until you make it. As trivial as my silly personal style post seem to me right now, I think I just need to start moving forward, even if doing some of these things seem unimportant. Before we found out about Bailey’s advancing condition this past weekend, I had snapped some of these shots featuring my favourite new boots from Sole Society. I’m happy I’m able to feature these new fall staples with a comparatively fresh face since I really do love them so much – trust me, no one wants to see pictures of me at the moment, my face is puffy beyond recognition.
While I’ve not been able to curb the sadness much yet, my little sister and I took a moment yesterday to visit a couple of Bailey’s favourite places and it definitely brought a moment of joy to us. The sun was shining and we went to the beach that Bailey always loved to swim at. As we turned into the entrance to the beach, lo and behold, a sparkling “B” letter was just lying there. It just felt like a sign that Bailey, our furry, golden guardian angel, was watching from Heaven and letting us know that he’s happy, and that we should remember to try to fill this absence in our lives with happy memories of him. It will take awhile to feel okay but having that moment and truly knowing he’s gone to Heaven (a special dog Heaven with all his favourite things, of course) does comfort me a bit.
Anyway, thank you again for everything you guys. It means so much. It’s going to take a lot of time but being able to come on here and do something I’m so familiar with and love doing definitely helps a lot.
