Six Years of Soda

By | February 15th, 2019|Caitie and Soda at Home, Featured, Featured on Polaroid 1, Soda's Birthday|17 Comments

'Falling in love with you is the second best thing in the world. Finding you was the first' - Unknown My dearest Soda, I can't quite believe that it's your birthday! How quickly a year has come and gone. It seems unbelievable that this time last year we had just found out that our family would be growing. You're six [...]

Twenty-Eighteen

By | January 8th, 2019|Featured on Polaroid 2, Uncategorized|0 Comments

I've been sitting in front of my computer for some time now, wondering how to start this post. It's been such a long time since I posted, and my entire world has changed in the interim. So, I guess first of all, I'll apologise for my absence, and now, I'll dive right in. Twenty-eighteen. The year that I became an [...]

Why it’s okay to fall down and lose your spark

By | May 10th, 2018|Blog, Caitie and Soda at Home, When Caitie met Soda Family|0 Comments

It’s been a while, hasn’t it? And I’ve wanted to publish a new post for so long. But, truthfully, I’ve been struggling with words.  Christmas was such a whirlwind that I think I ran out of steam. And then this morning I realised that life doesn’t ever slow down, does it? It keeps going, and our problems change and our [...]

A Letter to my Best Friend

By | February 15th, 2018|Caitie and Soda at Home, Soda's Birthday, When Caitie met Soda Family|0 Comments

To my best friend, my soulmate. Dear Soda, Today is your fifth birthday, my boy. Can you believe that? I definitely can't. I don't suppose as a dog you spend a lot of time dwelling on your age. But you haven't said no to the extra birthday treats, so I'm guessing you know it's your birthday... (#crazydoglady...) It feels like just [...]

A place to come home to

By | February 5th, 2018|Blog, Caitie and Soda at Home, Caitie Loves, Lifestyle, Living Creatively, When Caitie met Soda Family|2 Comments

The keys to the place that When Caitie met Soda now calls home. Thank you so much, Louise @TheJanuaryRose Have you ever felt lost? I mean totally, profoundly lost. Like the world has stopped looking the way that it used to; like all of the things you knew about yourself and your place in it have changed so dramatically [...]

You must do things you think you cannot do

By | October 31st, 2017|Blog, Caitie and Soda at Home, When Caitie met Soda Family|8 Comments

Do you ever have moments where you are truly lost for words? When you look at what's right in front of you, and feel the biggest of emotions, right in your chest, and can't, for the life of you, find the words to express them? I've sat here, in front of this computer screen for the last hour, trying to [...]

The Things I’ve Never Shown Anyone

By | August 4th, 2017|Caitie Loves, Lifestyle, Living Creatively|0 Comments

Hello, dearest friends, I wanted to write this while all of the emotions are still on the surface. ALL of the emotions. Because there is so much I want to say, and so much gratitude that I want to express. I'm not sure if there are even words for the depth of the emotion that I am feeling, but, I'm [...]

I’m not a Creative Person

By | August 1st, 2017|Lifestyle, Living Creatively|24 Comments

So, this one's a really personal one. And, it's a hard one to write too. Because it starts with one of the darkest moments in my life: the moment when I didn't want to be anymore. The moment when I lost myself. I've never really considered myself an 'ambitious' person. I never had a career in mind, and so, when [...]

You are Enough

By | July 28th, 2017|Caitie Loves, Living Creatively, New Arrivals, Off the Bench|0 Comments

You've always compared yourself to other people, haven't you? I mean, you're the first person to tell others that 'comparison is the thief of joy'; but, you don't follow that advice, do you? You look around you, at the people that you think are prettier, thinner, successful, in love, happy. But you don't look at yourself; not really anyway. Because you're [...]

Twenty-Seven

By | July 25th, 2017|Caitie Loves, Lifestyle, Living Creatively|2 Comments

Twenty-seven. Even typing that sounded old. I can't believe that I'm twenty-seven-years of age. I mean, I realise it's not that old. Not that old at all. But looking back at the past year, so much has happened, and I have changed in more ways than I can count. So, am I happy to be older? Yes. Not because I'm [...]
