the best Christmas surprise ever

Last week the Charlotte news warned everyone about a "severe winter storm" that was supposed to hit, the schools even delayed their Friday start time in preparation for the dangerous conditions. So what did I do? I Made sure to stock up on enough wine to get me through the blizzard, but rain fell and fell and I never saw one single snow flake! I woke up Friday morning to beautiful, sunny, 50 degree weather, thankful to have survived the winter mess.

Anyway, the cold weather and threats of snowflakes inspired one (hopefully) last Christmas post of the winter season. The story of my favorite Christmas present, ever.
Meet Nina...
I've wanted a dog of my own forever, which is no exaggeration, I wasn't one of those kids who grew up with a dog and always envied the kids that did. As soon as I was living on my own I started "threatening" my parents with buying a dog, but they kept begging me to wait. Looking back now I realize I could have bought a dog, but it never felt right without their support.

Well, last Christmas they must have realized I was serious, and decided to intervene and make sure I got the right dog. They surprised me when I went home to visit, with Nina, the best Christmas present ever!
Y'all, I love this dog. She's been the best buddy, companion, and friend. I use her as a shoulder to cry on when I'm sad, and she's been there through my move from Daytona, to Houston, and now in Charlotte. 
She's the perfect napping partner, and study buddy, and loves me unconditionally. She's brought so much joy to my life, and I really will never be able to thank my parents enough for such an awesome present.
What's been the best present you've ever received?

What an adorable dog!!

We had the same snow storm threat in Virginia Beach, 2 hour delays and everything. I am pretty sure it was the warmest, sunniest day we have had in a week!
