Our Hogwarts Letter Arrived

...kind of. Other than visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter as much as possible with our Universal Orlando Annual Passes this is the closest we'll get to feeling accepted to the best school ever. The most adorable canvas made from a photo of our sweet pup arrived, and I can't get over how much I love it and also giggle at it. It combines two of my favorite things - our doggy that has fit seamlessly into our home and all things Harry Potter. She is appropriately a Gryffindor, and dressed in her house robes. 

Can we also have a moment for the gold accent tables that I'm still loving after scooping them up during the height of the pandemic? They get pushed around from occasional rough housing between the pup and Lil' Miss, and have stood the test of time. So do not be deceived by the innocent face in this canvas - ha! 

I introduced her to her canvas, and had to bribe her with treats to pose for the camera of course. I mean look at her paw holding a wand from Ollivanders - amazing detail! A custom pet portrait is the perfect gift for your favorite cat and/or dog lover whether for a pet's birthday, a fun celebration, Christmas (which is coming up quicker than we think) or just because. I'm a huge fan of "just because" presents. 

I chose the photo I took of her for her 1st Christmas, and of course she had to be bribed with some puppy treats for this shot as well. She was already so grown up looking at just 5 months old (she's a July baby). 

This view never gets old at Universal Orlando, and I have to stop every time we're at the parks to take it all in. Please excuse me as I go perfect a butterbeer recipe so I can enjoy the deliciousness at home now that my pup is officially a Hogwarts student.
