Cat and Dog

Oh, the joys of adding a new kitten to the house! Although Carter and Penelope have become the best of friends, there seems to always be some type of unspoken competition happening at any given time. Whether they are wrestling each other to the ground or playing an intense game of hide-and-seek, there is never a dull moment in this house. Yesterday, I found Carter napping on my blanket and as soon and he left, Penelope quickly jumped up and made herself comfortable. Although it has only been a few weeks, it’s hard to imagine what things were like before Penelope arrived!

First Grade

August has arrived and with that brings a new school year for Madeline! She’s now entering the first grade and just like the years before, it’s hard to believe how quickly time has passed. Like previous years, I’ve always asked Madeline what she wanted to be when she grows up. When entering pre-k, she wanted to be a Fairy Godmother. When kindergarten arrived, she wanted to be a Pediatrician. Now that she’s entering the first grade, she stated she wanted to be a Dentist. I suppose those occasional visits to my office have made quite the impression! I can’t wait to see how she’ll feel when second grade arrives. ;]

Happy first day of the first grade, Madeline! We know you’ll do great!

Four Months

Penelope is quickly approaching four months and we can’t believe how quickly time is passing! Home-life is certainly an adventure with this wild little thing in our lives! She has become Carter’s bestest little friend and he couldn’t be happier!

July Blooms

Today, while I was out for lunch, a beautiful bouquet of white hydrangeas were delivered to the office. Within the next thirty minutes, a second bouquet of hydrangeas were delivered. And, shortly after that, a third bouquet arrived. Three bouquets of my favorite blooms! Feeling so incredibly blessed to have such sweet people in my life.20140708-225000-82200425.jpg

Seattle Adventures

Last week Josh and I packed up and headed to Seattle for the 4th of July holidays. And, we couldn’t have asked for better weather while exploring Seattle! Thankful for a lovely little summer vacation!

Seattle Bound

In a few hours I’ll be flying out to Seattle for the 4th of July holiday! Although I’m excited for a little vacation in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I’m already wishing I could take this little cutie with me! ;]20140708-232056-84056278.jpg
