National Cat Day 2018

If you’ve been on social media today at all, I’m sure you’ve seen that it’s National Cat Day! I can’t think of a more appropriate way to celebrate than to share a few of my favorite recent photos of Professor. This little rascal brings a smile to my face approximately forty thousand times a day.

Hug Point

Throwing it back to our honeymoon today… I thought visiting Cannon Beach was a guarantee I’d see some sea stars and other interesting intertidal creatures. No such luck. When we got back to the hotel for the evening, Jeff and I set off to work figuring out what we’d do the next morning. Hitting up

five years with Klaus!

This year I celebrated eleven years with Squid, eight years with Professor, and now, five years with Klaus. On July 20th, 2013, I adopted a very tiny puppy from a shelter I had driven past a million times before. I went ‘just to look’ but ended up bringing home the cutest brindle baby ever. I

Around eight years ago I became interested in pressing plants. My love for the hobby has a sort of natural ebb and flow that’s fairly dependant on the season. Winter, obviously, isn’t a great time to find specimens. As soon as spring comes around each year I fall right back into old habits. Picking and

the little things

Since the moment Klaus came into my life I’ve been sharing little updates on how he’s been getting along with the cats. Perhaps that’d be better worded as ‘how the cats are getting along with him.” He’s always wanted to be friends but Squid and Professor have been a little resistant. I thought maybe it’d
