Guest Blogger! Gift Guide for Animal Enthusiasts

One of my new favorite bloggers is JoAnn from i’d rather be shopping. Her amazing style and good grammar skills are enviable, but it’s her love of animals and courage to quit her corporate job that makes me want to marry her.  J is one of the sweetest bloggers out there and I was thrilled when she asked me to guest post on her blog (read it!). Then I forced asked her nicely if she would make an appearance on the Lonely Wife Project. How happy am I that she agreed to put together a gift guide for me and the other crazies who would rather shop for animals than humans! Thanks, J, for this brilliant post!

i’m joann from i’d rather be shopping and i’m bringing my gift guides over to the lonely wife project today…thanks for having me, sabra!  when i first discovered the lonely wife project, i took note that sabra had lovely taste and a beautiful home….and then i noticed that she had the most adorable family of pets!  i am a dog lover without a dog (no pets allowed in my apartment) so it was love at first sight when i saw lily, poppy and dexter.  while i am pining away for a puppy this holiday season, it is only fitting that i live vicariously through sabra and put together a pet gift guide in honor of her furry friends.  from super luxe to playful gifts, there’s something for every lovable creature in your life…happy shopping!
