One year ago

Happy Adoption Anniversary to Reo who joined our family one year ago! Her sweet disposition, boundless energy and silly antics have brought us laughter, happiness and pure love. I’m forever grateful to the family who fostered her as a feral rescue and let me become her mom.

A return to tradition

For many years Spence and I enjoyed Scallops Chambord on New Years Eve with a chilled bottle of Prosecco, a roaring fire and a great movie. We looked forward to this decadent meal with the anticipation of kids on Christmas morning.

That changed after I lost Spence in 2017. I put the tradition on pause, it felt too sad to continue it. I hoped I’d feel differently one day and this year I did. The passage of time, gratitude for good health and so many blessings in my life allowed me to embrace our tradition once again. It was fabulous!

I’m adding a link to the recipe from an earlier post in case you’re inspired to try my recipe https://spencesgirl.com/2015/12/31/scallops-chambord/ and I wish you all a Happy New Year!

Reo, life as the little sister in my own words

Biscotti doesn’t have to stand on his tiptoes
to see outside because he’s so tall.
We’re a couple of cool cats
Proof that even though my crazy kitten energy gets on his nerves, Biscotti does love me.

My name is Reo and my mom helped me with this blog post, she’s best kitten mom ever.

Perspective

At times when I’m painting tiles images emerge and I’ve titled these tiles accordingly.

As I share my tile photos via social media, I don’t always include my “vision”. As a result, in comments I learn what others see – and that’s  fun.  Other interpretations are fascinating to me and often I begin to see what they see. Like life, it’s good to be open to another’s perspective.

What do you see?

 

 

Broken yes, but not beyond repair
