For Fred's one year #adoptaversary yesterday I took him to @brooklinebooksmith I grew up in the arms of my parents in the bookstore they started and owned. They were always sharing stories of far away lands we will travel, creatures of the depths of the earth, and all that this big gorgeous world has to offer us. .
Carrying him through the store made me tear up a bit thinking of those memories. How much my life has changed. How much of this globe I have seen thanks to my parents dropping me off at random countries since a young age. .
Tomorrow I take this sweet child of mine, my protector, on his first flight! We are heading to Reno for a dance performance, then to Seattle for a dance workshop I'm honored to give to those with mobility challenges. While we are in my hometown of Seattle, he'll hang with his favorite people, my family! He'll see and smell the room I grew up in and swim in the lake I grew up on. .
Thank you, Fred Astaire for picking me, and happy #adoptaversary! You've changed my life, let's go see the world, shall we?!? @delta we're excited!! #servicedogfirstflight
