$169. $344. $127. $89. $276. $124. $214. $166. Those are the totals from the times I’ve had to take Ollie to the emergency vet for a variety of ailments over the last 8 years.

Goodbye September

High five! September is over! You may recall that I wasn’t exactly looking forward to September. And you may have noticed that I was especially quiet on social media. I had a lot on my plate last month, but now that I look back, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. That doesn’t mean that I want…

Eighth Birthday.

This guy is eight years old today. The ridiculous tradition of taking birthday photos started last year. Ollie wasn’t as enthusiastic this year and this was as close to his birthday balloon as he was willing to get. Even for copious amounts of treats.

Tiny Succulents in Tiny Baskets

I know succulents have become a bit cliché since they’ve overtaken Pinterest, but I’ve always loved them. I didn’t know what they were called at the time, but my grandma had hen and chicks growing on the rocks and bricks that lined her garden and I was fascinated by them.
