Those words couldn't be more true recently:
The past six days have been some of the hardest I have ever faced. Thankfully, I have had the support of family, friends, and my amazing husband. 

Last Friday we were in Fort Smith for Thanksgiving break, and also my brothers playoff game. My little dog, Lucy, tragically passed away over the weekend and my world literally turned upside down.
She somehow got out of my parents backyard while we were at the football game and someone hit her. My daddy found her on the side of the road - I honestly have never experienced pain like I did last Friday night. 

She had been with me constantly for almost a decade and losing her was so so hard on me. She came to college with me, lived with me when I was single, moved all over Fayetteville and then came to Little Rock with me. Tyler asked me to marry him by tying my ring around her neck back in November of 2013. It's crazy how much life we experienced together... I swear pets are family too! 

My family and friends have been there to support me and pray for me during this terrible time, and for that I am eternally grateful. Shoutout to my girls for the prettiest flowers, for sweet friends who sent cards and letters, and even brought us over dinner. 

I know this isn't a typical blog post, but Lucy was such a part of me that I couldn't move on without a shoutout to my best girl. She was so sassy, loved me more than anything, and always created drama wherever she was. If you met her, she most likely hated you- she even played hard to get with Tyler! I am going to miss her so much, but I am so thankful for all of my amazing memories with her and the family we made together. Her big personality, sweet cuddles and stroller rides will always be missed!

Of the millions of pictures I have with her, this one will always be one of my favorites. Taken the morning before my college graduation

Thanks again for all the prayers, calls and texts! You mean the world to me
