Thanks to Julie and Julia, I Am Celebrating Seven Years of Blogging Today!

Since January is the month of new beginnings I thought I'd look back on when I began blogging and discovered that it was seven years ago today! Combining my love of writing, teaching, and pet sitting through blogging was one of the best decisions of my life and I appreciate everyone for taking the time to read my first blog post and beyond


Dear Friends,

I was inspired to start this blog many months ago after watching Julie and Julia at the theater. In fact, I turned to my fiance and fellow pet sitting partner, Amos, to announce that I was going to start a pet sitting blog that would eventually make me as well-known as Julia Child and Julie Powell.

Of course it would be wonderful to reap financial benefits from blogging about pets but a greater benefit would be to attract an audience of animal lovers who need a break from their busy lives each day. 

Ever since I walked away from 16 years of teaching in the summer of 2006 in order to focus on my business, Teacher's Pet Sitting Service, I've been entertained by both the pets and their owners and have enough wonderful stories to last a lifetime so I will write them down, one day at a time, and I hope you will enjoy them all.

Thanks for reading,
