7 years ago today…

The last Harry Potter book went on sale and my sister LindseyΒ and I were waiting impatiently for our copies at midnight. The last day of our childhood. I can’t believe it was seven years ago already, it feels like yesterday.

Be Silly.
Be Honest.
Be Kind.

She’s had such a tough day - begging for treats, sunbathing, and getting the worst dreadlock ever shaved off her underbelly! It was probably the most traumatic for Kyle but it’s finally gone… Yay! And she still loves a good chin rub. Oh that little pink nose! πŸ’˜ (at Home)

#ThrowbackThursday to that time when I secretly thought I was crazy for ordering two of these beautiful photo albums from Germany only to realize @risaboring had done exactly the same thing. #greatmindsthinkalike (at The Balcony Garden)

I had the most fabulous weekend with this lady. My first friend, who is so dear to me. The one and only Leslerina Ballerina. May you never have to eat wilted greens and overly tart vinaigrette. Never forget: a spoonful of sherry helps the medicine go down, in the most delightful way. Cheers to the next 14 years! πŸ‘­  (at Paper Source)

My sweet kitty Chin-Chin is 19 years old this summer. It’s been a wonderful friendship. This photo was taken by my dad in the summer of 1995 soon after we rescued her and her sister from a pet store in El Paso. She’s so precious! #truelove #chinchinkitty #throwbackthursday #tbt (at Home)
