I threw this post up at the I-95 Facebook page yesterday, just hoping a few people would share their little photos they look at every single time they open their phones. I use the wallpaper on my phone to grab moments I never want to forget. Granted, it doesn't always mean I keep it on that forever, but I am a sentimental creature.

Some of these photos also really hit me right in the feels. Obviously, I love all photos of cats and dogs, but being a pretty new dog owner, it was hard to look at some of the ones that folks described as their fur babies that had crossed the rainbow bridge. That's one of those moments I DO NOT look forward to having to deal with.

Every day with my pup is like gold, and I try to cherish every moment, and not miss anything. He probably wishes I'd just leave him alone for two seconds and stop petting him, but that is definitely never going to happen. I'm sure there's gotta be some research into petting your dog too much, but I want nothing to do with it, haha.

Also, some folks shared pictures of loved ones that have passed on. Also hit me right in guts, after losing my father this year. So really, it's been a roller coaster of emotions at my house this morning, and it's only 4:14am.

But luckily, as emotionally charged as some of them are, there's a lot in there that just made me straight up laugh my butt off. Like the tow dogs carrying the same bone, or the little girl covered in soap. Or the cat that somehow actually likes its carrier. I had no idea there was such a thing! And of course, I love the one with Cori and her kids!

If there's one solid takeaway from loading these photos up, is that most people really know what life is all about. People want to be reminded of the things they love whenever they open their phone. Whether it's pets, or kids, or even your giant new John Deere tractor, people want to see their most beloved things.

Honestly, now more than ever, I totally understand. Nice job, folks.

Oh, and by the way, if you don't see your photo in here, it was likely a copyrighted photo that would get me fired if I shared it, hahaha.
