This weeks word is Treasure. 
Treasure is usually defined as a quantity of valuable objects, you know, like a big old chest crammed with golden coins and diamond encrusted everything. To me though my treasure is priceless. My greatest treasure is 100% Baker! At the end of the day possessions can be replaced but our loved ones can't. 

Next weeks word is Bloom.(And you have to take part or I will personally come to your house and make you do it :P)

Question of the Week.

What was your first thought upon waking up this morning? 
Well I'll tell you what it was this (Saturday) morning because I'll be at work when you are reading this. Today Jake came in from night shift and it woke me up, so of course I checked my phone to see the time as I thought my alarm hadn't gone off. Turns out he'd gotten home early and I could of had an extra 20mins thoughts were angry, sleepy ones. It is not good to wake a sleeping Danielle. 


  1. Thank you so much for mentioning me! I'm so happy that It was a happy moment for you <3
    I love your bgh!! Baker is such a beautiful dog. I totally get what you mean. Pets aren't just pets for some people.. you know?
