Today was a beautiful / uplifting / marvelous / spectacular day.
Why, you ask?
Well, the sun was shining, smiles and laughter were in abundance, and my Zenned Out order arrived!
|Check out the gorgeous packaging it came in! They even included a lovely magnet.|
Let me rewind briefly to a week or so ago:
This summer, my lil' dingo and I shared our 4th year together, and I have been wanting to find him a special ID tag to celebrate his unique and clever soul. So while perusing Etsy one day, I was struck with inspiration to reach out to one of my favorite jeweler: Zenned Out.
Zenned Out is lovely little shop based out of Arizona that creates stunning handmade jewelry for the modern yogi! I have been a fan of their jewelry for a while (aka they have made frequent appearances in my Pinterest and Etsy boards), but I always been indecisive on what to order first. When I approached them about potentially creating a custom dog tag for Riggs, they got back to me lickity-split: Yes!
Fast-forward back to the present: it is finally here!
The hamsa on the top of the piece, which contains an evil eye, is for protection. Given Riggs's curious nature, along with his official title as my adventure co-pilot, I thought it would be a perfect symbol for him to wear everyday. Below his information, Zenned Out also included a lotus. Lotus flowers grow up from murky, muddy pools until blossom above the surface, which I feel wonderfully represents Riggs's past. Before he came into my life, he was found as a stray in Wyoming who was malnourished, fearful, and obvious traumatized from previous abuse. Now, after years of love and care, he has blossomed into a loving, playful hound who always ensures I am happy and safe.
|Here's the lil goober modeling his new tag on our afternoon hike to the water falls.|
However, now that Riggs's has some Zenned Out bling, I am getting a little jealous! I suppose it is time to pick one for myself... but which one?
