I always told myself I wouldn’t become one of “those” dog owners -- the kind who treated their pets like part of the family, bought him outfits, let him sleep in the bed. But that was only because I hadn’t yet owned a dog. Now, I’m officially one of “those” dog owners, and proud of it, although I may have amassed a few too many dog outfits -- which is fine, because it plays into my other strengths, shopping and spending a lot of money. 

When I’m not doing those things, I can usually be found writing, reading, watching movies with my beau, or obsessing over the latest bit of pop culture news. My career launched in the realm of journalism (a dying industry, no big deal) and now I code websites and write for a living. As a volunteer blogger for Connecticut Women’s Education and Legal Fund, and the editor of a few blogs here and there, I’m worried that one day I may just turn into a blog. I think I’d be fine with that.
