happy birthday genevieve!

I’m a few days late in posting this, but on Monday, our darling Genevieve turned 10. Well, we think she turned 10. Like the others, she was a rescue kitty. But unlike her siblings, we didn’t adopt her when she was a kitten. The shelter guessed that she was about 2 when we took her … Continue reading

happy birthday to my bella

happy birthday to my bella

Ten years ago, I saw an ad in the paper for free kittens. I was working on my master’s degree at Ohio State and had just had my heart broken by a particularly arrogant jerk. I decided a kitten was just what I needed, so I drove down to a stranger’s house and met my … Continue reading

happy (late) mother’s day!

happy (late) mother’s day!

As I was writing my Father’s Day post, it occurred to me that I owed you a Mother’s Day post. We were all a little bit busy around Mother’s Day with Tater’s birth. But that doesn’t mean I can ignore my marvelous mama. So here you go. She is quirky and stubborn and strong and … Continue reading

happy father’s day

I know the blog has been quiet lately. I’m going through some stuff and feeling like I’ve lost my way. But I can’t let today go by without celebrating my amazing dad. So let the waterworks begin. My dad lost his dad when he was very young, in his 20s, so he had to figure … Continue reading

My sister is having a baby, like, any minute now. Her actual due date is just under two weeks away, but no one really thinks she’ll make it. Moo was one week early, and I think Tater will be early, too. You read right: her nickname is Tater. Don’t ask. Obviously, I am SO SUPER … Continue reading

never too many tutus

Miss Moo, getting ready to bust a move with her Dora boombox and every princess tutu she owns. I think we can all learn something here: when in doubt, add another tutu.

My love of boogies isn’t limited to my own furkids. I love all boogies like they are my own. Case in point: my parents’ cat, Snickers. She is a petite flower, with the tiniest feet. She is such a darling girl.

For Christmas, Santa brought Genevieve a wonderful new blanket. She loves the sherpa fuzziness and I think the purple suits her royal demeanor. Tonight, she chose the blanket over my lap, and that’s saying something.

sunny sunday

Mr. Phish is at work, the dishes are done, and the house is vacuumed. I think it’s time to join the boogies. Bella couldn’t be bothered to wake up for the paparazzi. Genevieve had the entire bed to herself and she took full advantage of the sunshine. And this darling little boy tried to pose … Continue reading

my other blue-eyed girl

Moo isn’t the only blue-eyed girl in my life. This is my other amazing and beautiful niece. I have known her from the moment she was born and I love her just as much now as I did that day 12 years ago. Girl is fierce and goofy and fearless and fast. I can’t wait … Continue reading
