Blossom is nearing her one year anniversary with us. I’ve been looking at photos and came across this one. I’ll never forget this moment when Blossom decided to cuddle up to me. I couldn’t believe that she would trust me this much...
During the week before Blossom came, I was excited, but I was also scared to death. I would lay awake at night wondering what exactly I was thinking when I agreed (ok, more like jumped at the chance) to adopt a turkey. Who thinks it’s appropriate to adopt a turkey when you live in a townhouse???
I did. Because ultimately, I think when you have the will, the determination and the love - there is a way. Blossom and Minnow are the best beings that have ever happened to me. They help me to know that this world is full of love and that I can believe in that. 💛 #tbt#lovewillfindaway#everythingisgoingtobeok#someonenotsomething
I’m sorry you can’t experience the best part of our dance party because of copyright laws! You are missing out on some classic Cyndi Lauper here!
I wasn’t going to post this video, especially without sound, because it is proof that I am entirely bonkers and sometimes (ok, often) act like a total nut with my family! But, then again, I feel so incredibly lucky to have my family that being a nut really doesn’t bother me. I get to celebrate Minnow and Blossom’s life everyday... we are free to be crazy and that’s nothing to be ashamed of! We hope you are all having a great week. Don’t forget to do the things that bring you joy, no matter how silly they may seem! 💃🏻 #girlsjustwannahavefun
We like to have dance parties here and Blossom has some moves!! 💃🏻 You’ll have to put up with this bouncy video (sorry!) but I think it’s worth watching to the end. I’ll post a video of our dance party with music tomorrow! 🎶 #mondaymotivation#turkeydancemoves#someonenotsomething
Blossom doesn’t like it when I wear socks and tries her best to pull them off. She also doesn’t like it when I wear shorts, but I’ll spare you from that video... 🙈 We are half way to Friday!! #happyhumpday
The yearly molt... Blossom is in the middle of her molt and it’s an itchy, uncomfortable process. There’s also white feathers all over the house! I was keeping up with them for a few weeks, but it’s definitely out of control right now. Today I pulled my wallet out, opened it up and a feather floated out as I tried to pay at the grocery store! 😂 #moltingseason
Ps. There’s nothing that exciting about this video which is exactly how we feel about molting!!
We all need TLC and Blossom is no exception! She loves to get a good foot massage!
I love turkey feet. There are parts that are really smooth and soft and parts that are scaly and rough. To me, they are one of the most beautiful things in the world... it feels like they are such a representation of life... and I love how they evolve and change as life is lived.
We hope you are all having a lovely Sunday and making time for your own TLC! 💞
There’s this song that I sing to Minnow all the time called ‘Close to You’ and one of the lines goes like this... ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
On the day that you were born the angels got together /And decided to create a dream come true / So they sprinkled moon dust in your hair of gold and starlight in your eyes of blue... ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
I’m tone deaf and I’m sure I’m popping her ear drums, but Minnow doesn’t care. She just looks at me and smiles in her perfect Minnow way! Happy Birthday, Minnow! I love you more than words. Someone sprinkled a lot of moon dust and starlight on you because you light up my entire world. 💛
Blossom loves falling asleep in front of her fan and I love watching her fall asleep! Sometimes I stare at her (and Minnow) and feel so much peace in my heart that nothing else matters. ❤️ #peaceisaplaceinyourheart
Yesterday I opened my IG account to a video that broke my heart into a million pieces.
I’m posting it today because as painful as it is, these babies need to be seen. I’m going to admit that I’m not strong enough to place it as the first image. I would give my last breath to an animal in need, but certain things leave me a little too broken - like seeing a truck of Blossom’s family being carried off to the fate Blossom once knew.
I struggle everyday to figure out how to help end the suffering, imprisonment and exploitation of animals and sometimes I feel buried by their pain.
But, I have Minnow and Blossom who are the embodiment of hope. And when it all feels like too much, they fill me with more love than I could ever imagine. I also have people like you, who love and care for animals in so many beautiful and courageous ways. You inspire me and motivate me to do more. I will never give up and I will always have hope that we will change how we treat animals here on earth. 💔🙏🦃
Thank you @jollyjennifer for bearing witness to these tender souls, for capturing the video and for having the courage to stand up for animals. 💞 #someonenotsomething
Green beans vs. ice cream! Happy Friday, everyone! 🎉 P.S. Blossom only has one tail feather because she is molting. It happens to be her middle feather and it feels like she’s walking around giving the world the middle finger... I mean, feather! 😂
