A Dark Night

Today, the world feels like such a dark place. But there is hope. "The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul." Psalm 121:7

The Tale of Pip

master Pip - following in the footsteps of his Dickensian namesake
This past weekend, we were graced by a visit from Ben's "little" sister Laura and her delightful friends, Macey and Jeanie. We showed them around Nashville, ate some amazing food, relaxed at our apartment and, whilst strolling in Centennial Park, saw the most spectacular rainbow!

However, all of that only scratches the surface of eventful encounters this weekend. Whilst relaxing on our porch Friday night, soaking in the mild weather, Laura spotted a white cat cowering under a van in our parking lot. Never one to pass up the chance to befriend a cat, I hurried down to check it out.

Long story short-ish, after practically crawling under the van to retrieve said feline, we found him to be deathly skinny, horribly dirty with a badly injured eye. Several bowls of milk, kitten food, and three flea baths later, he is the fluffiest, cuddliest most grateful kitten I have ever seen.

At a mere 1.1. lbs, he'll have to double in size to meet the humane society's 2 lbs minimum weight for them to take him... if we don't get too attached first.

Took an unexpected stroll down memory lane as I happened upon my old Myspace photo page. Here are a few gems.

California Dreamin'

Today, I am dreamin' of the crisp, cool morning we spent at Muir Beach during our honeymoon. 'Twas truly the most beautiful beach I ever did see.

Red, white and scones

We celebrated the Fourth with a leisurely breakfast, Indian food + Moonrise Kingdom with dear friends, pizza in the park, and fireworks - viewed from our alma mater's parking garage roof.
