The Bestest Boy

We drive up to the tiny cottage house, solemn, quiet, amidst a pale soft ray of full moon light. The glow turned everything gray, with small whisps of black and white here and there. The small open front door cast a bright warm inviting luminescence that made one forget about the cold crisp summer air. […]

Cuteness Overload: Happy [Inter]National Dog Day!

The last 5 years with Zach have gone by so fast. I reinforces my desire that he lasts us forever. I catch my husband tearing up after a good bro session with Z, as he tries to imagine a life without him. According to the vet, our 80.4 lbs American Staffordshire Labrador mutt is healthy […]

The slider door to the backyard is open but that doesn’t really matter to Zach who instead of using this exit sits noisily by the French doors. “Zach, come on!” His behavior defies any explanation. I’ll never know why the […]

2018, A Year in Review

There are so many little things to be thankful for: MBA grades, new friends, the house, selling the rental  Zach, my sister’s move-engagement-wedding, and the beautiful memories of DIYs, parties and the new house. The bad came at us strongly; my mom was diagnosed in September with glioblastoma, a rare and incurable form of brain […]

Zach’s Gotcha Day: 3rd Anniversary!

Can you believe it? It’s been three years since I found a foster family, which knew early on I was a keeper. Must have been my devilish charm and love taps. He he. I’m forever grateful that these two enginerds – engineers + nerds – decided to get a chance on me. I’m doing my […]
