Goats. Goats goats goats. Goatie goat goat goat.
Oh, hmmm? I was just thinking about goats again. (For the three millionth time today.)
This is my first time linking up to Life of a Blogger and, of course, I just had to pick this week to do it. I love Jessi’s idea for this feature, but never have been able to participate before because my blogging schedule is usually jam-packed with other posts all week. But I just had to do it this week when I saw that the topic is favorite animals!
You guys…I love goats. Like, so much.
My love for goats started late in life, but don’t worry, I’ve made up for that in my dedicated passion for them since the day I realized that my calling in life was to be a professional goat evangelist. I fell in love with goats on June 29, 2010 (yes, I seriously know the date).
Here is a photo commemorating the hallowed day:
“Hi Mr. Goaties! Let’s be friends!”
And, ever since then, I was hooked. Goats became my life passion. I’ve been back to that same petting zoo countless times to visit my BFFs, Mr. Goat #1 and Mr. Goat #2.
Here we are, again, one year later:
After visiting the goats again…I knew that I needed more. I collected photos and videos of cute goats doing adorable things. It became my drug. Every time I was sad, I needed a fix.
Then, on the best day of my entire life, my boyfriend Brent surprised me with a trip to a local goat farm to visit real, live BABY GOATS. I almost passed out I was so excited. I most certainly cried…at least once.
Here I am taking one big, beautiful hit of black baby goat:
This past summer, Brent and I even travelled 5 hours for a vacation in Vermont. And, oh hey, look what I found….
And then, for our anniversary this past November….we went to visit goats again…
Let’s just say that I pretty much have the best boyfriend in the entire world. Well, I mean, he’s almost as good as boyfriends who buy their girlfriends baby goats. But, like, getting to see them is pretty good, too.
