And here, the reason for my absence. Otis, a 6-month old lovable canine that we rescued from the Houston pound recently. [they have a 73% kill rate. which breaks my heart into a million pieces and ohmygoodness do not let me loose in an entire wing / building full puppies. I’d take them all home.] He’s the cartoon character to our Gus, the slower-moving lovable moose. They love nothing more than to chase, wrestle, and play tug of war all day. Complete opposites, and yet perfect companions. We’re grateful for this snugglebug, and he’s really settling into our family. Not to mention that the ladies that work with me all seem to adore the little guy, which is pretty awesome. I mean, how could you not?
Otherwise, I feel like I’ve been on the road forever, which really means June. I’ve seen Utah x2, San Diego, Seattle x3, my beloved Vancouver [the first time home in five years! remember this? I got it in spades.], LA, Colorado, and this week I’m off to Palm Springs for a Parker Palm Springs wedding, with McKenzie at my side.
I’m looking forward to being home … for a while. But I have a bunch of other exciting things on the horizon, and most include not sleeping in my own bed. Grateful, yes. [But let’s be honest: I really just want to be snuggling with the pups!]
One: Otis and I meet in Houston; Attempting a snuggle with Gus.
Two: Mount Ranier from the plane; Lunch date at Sitka and Spruce in Seattle.
Three: Sunset on Abbott Kinney, LA; Driving the long way down from Denver to Durango, CO.
Four: Seattle Wedding at the Corson Building; Everything looks better with tapers, at the Corson Building.
