Hey, I’m Allison. I've been the wife of a wonderful Navy man for almos 3 years. I'm the lucky mama to a sweet little girl, Emma Rose. Fur mama to my 3 crazy dogs: Bean, Min Pin Rex; Beagle, Simba; Black Lab.
Being a true lover of animals I have had many pets in my life, from the usual dogs to guinea pigs, hamsters, fish, and turtles.
I'm the proud Founder of Furbaby Flowers LLC, a pet lover gift and apparel store. Check it out here at [link-omitted]
Because I am a big advocate for animal welfare and ending pet homelessness my business donates 10% of its proceeds to PetSmart Charities.
I'm a busy mom and a true coffee addict, but ii think that can be forgiven when you're raising a one-year-old, building a business and going to college to get your small business degree.
Some background on my life
When I was 2 I developed severe stomach issues and mouth ulcers that made it impossible to eat and drink, not to mention talk. I was later diagnosed with Crohns after many years of not knowing what was wrong with my body. Being that I was unable to do a lot of things normal kids did and missed a lot of school I started to read. Now I'm an avid book reader and love the feeling I get when I add new books to my collection. Harry Potter is one of my favorite books and J.k Rowling, is a huge inspiration to me. After many hardships and struggles, she made it through and has become known the world over for her beautiful writing and for inspiring children and adults alike with her magical world. She has brought light into so many people's dark [link-omitted]uding mine.
Along with, or more likely stemming from the Crohns disease I developed major depression and anxiety. It was a desperate struggle and what seemed an unending downward spiral. I got sick more often and each new medicine never seemed to work. It was only after having my little miracle baby come home and I truly buckled down and worked on myself. It is still hard at times and my confidence went way down when I finally had surgery to get my colon removed and receive a permanent ileostomy. Now I'm a proponent for self- confidence and doing what you can in life to make each day better to bring more happiness into your life and those surrounding yours.
That's exactly what I aspire to do, make people happy and confident in themselves, and I do it with the help of my furbabies.
