May 25, 2011
On December 30, 2009 I wrote my very first blog post. I had no idea what I was doing or where it would go.

May 18, 2011

May 04, 2011
On Sunday I shared a couple of pictures of my girl, Kitty Paw,  basking in the sun. As you might imagine, those were NOT the only two pictures I took that evening. So, I thought I’d share a couple more today…in black and white.Isn’t she beautiful? Perhaps I should submit her photos to some sort of feline modeling agency. Can you tell she’s been practicing her model eyes?Have a wonderful Wednesday!
