valentine’s day baby

Well, today is February 14th. I have mixed feelings about this date because of course you should celebrate those you love every day (which honestly, I think is even more meaningful). But, that doesn’t mean you can’t use it as an excuse to leave work on time and spend some quality time with your significant other, your friends, or even […]

a stranger halloween

With Halloween on a Monday, it’s been a LONG weekend of celebrating. We have an office costume party today, but we’ll be keeping it nice and relaxed this evening with some homemade popcorn and a (non-scary) movie. I knew everyone and their mom would dress up as Stranger Things characters this year, but once I […]

my last roll of film

Oh, hi. Again. I have to admit blogging has not been on the forefront of my mind lately. What has been? Oh, I don’t know. MY LIFE. That seems to be the way it goes. Everything feeling up in the air and uncertain and what am I doing with my life and you know the drill. […]

zilker park – austin, texas

I joked that the only reason we drove back to Texas was so Kipling could run across Zilker. But it was partially true. I wanted Kipling to make a trip back to Texas, and while we were there, we absolutely had to let her run free across the lawn. We miss a lot of that […]

a hike and a dog

Yesterday I attempted my first ever solo hike with Kipling at Kenneth Hahn and learned two things. 1. Kipling is both the best and worst workout partner – she never stops. She is still a tugger, and she was going absolutely nuts over all of the gopher holes. She dragged me up the hill and […]

kipling turns three

We’ve had a lot to celebrate lately: holidays, new successes, big milestones, and Kipling’s 3rd birthday. Amongst all this, I’ve been insanely busy, which is why I’ve been a bit MIA over here. Kipling’s birthday is on Valentine’s day, and on that day I had to celebrate her, have a Valentine’s Day lunch with my […]

my baby love

A couple of weeks ago Kipling was attacked by another dog. Though she was okay afterwards (minus a couple of bite punctures), the whole thing did make my heart ache. She was her normal self almost immediately afterwards, but it still hurt to know that she was hurt and couldn’t do anything about it. I […]

saturday dog beach

I’m embarrassed to say it, but we hadn’t taken Kipling to the beach since last summer. Well, a few weekends ago we remedied that…even if we were only there for an hour. With the early sunset, we didn’t have much time before it got dark and too cold to withstand anymore. Of course, Kipling had […]

christmas kipling

The past two years we haven’t been able to spend Christmas with Kipling, and it makes me sad each time. At least I can be reassured by the fact that she is staying with our neighbor, who not only spoils her, but has a dog for her to play with as well. My husband helped […]

lion dog

I’ve wanted Kipling to be a lion for the past three years, and this year I finally found her a mane. Our plans this past Sunday were to go to the abandoned zoo in Griffith Park (something we’ve been wanting to do) and take photos of her inside the cages, you know, as a lion! […]
