The beginning of the end of summer

Aug 18, 2016
640 There's nothing quite like the summons of jury duty and a dentist appointment to remind you that summer is, sadly, near its end. Until then, I am off on one last journey to my hometown yet again and then it's back to reality. My brain is still in summer mode so I really don't even have intelligent words to be able to turn this into an entertaining post. I just basically wanted to say, well, what I already said, ha!

Enjoy the rest of your summer!

It's hard to believe it's already been one month since I introduced Lulu to the world. When I adopted her, she was scrawny, her fur was disheveled and she just had this huge cushion of sadness surrounding her. It makes me sad to even think about it. Flash forward to the present and I can't even imagine life without her now...
