I can't believe it's been a year already since Chris and I adopted our fur baby, Lilly. It has been a life-changing experience, for sure. If you're new to the blog and haven't seen my posts: The Real Reason I Got A Kitten and Lilly The Life Changing Kitty, be sure to check those out! They tell the story behind our sweet girl.

She was so stinkin' little. Everytime I look at her baby pictures, I get all sentimental and yes, a little teary eyed. I can't help it. I love her so much and she has seriously changed my life. Every night she will snuggle in bed with her head on my pillow right next to me. We call her our little follow cat. Lilly is always in whatever room we are in. If I'm in the shower, you best bet she's sitting on the toilet seat waiting for me. We can always count on her to be waiting right by the door when we come home. She even knows the sounds of our car locking sound. Once she hears it, she runs right to the door and just sits. It's the sweetest thing.

If you read my post, The Real Reason I Got A Kitten, then you know one of the main reasons I decided to get a kitten was because I was dealing with severe anxiety and depression. Since Lilly has been a part of our family, I've been doing so much better. I've had less anxiety attacks and I'm simply happier. 

Over the past year, I have learned many lessons. Everything from loving a kitten at first sight to loving myself, Lilly has taught me so much. In one year, we adopted Lilly, I quit my retail job, we got engaged, and we got married. I'd say it's been the best year yet.

Happy Gotcha-Day Lilly!

Always remember, adopt. Don't shop. You might just be bringing home the best thing that ever happened to you.

Stay Classy.
