    The other day, Mal and I were both in bad moods (oh, Gemini mood swings), which, of course, is never a good time. Usually, when one of us is in a crappy mood, the other person helps them snap out of it, but Mal and I kept annoying each other and making little snide comments. […]


    happy summer pug

    Happy first day of summer, friends!!! I love summer. A lot. I also love today because it’s the longest day of the year. I just really enjoy having those extra hours of sunlight each day. It’s kind of cool when you look outside at 8:30 at night and it’s still kind of light out, right? […]

    Good morning! My day started bright and early this morning with a phone call from my husband. He forgot about the time change for me and just wanted to say “good morning,” so my phone was ringing at 5:45 AM. Well, hello, Mal. We chatting for a little while—he recapped his morning and told me […]



    Just a heads up: This is a super random blog post… and you’re welcome. Ha! Mal had today off from school since it’s Good Friday, so we (ok, him and Murphy) slept in and enjoyed a leisurely morning together. I actually had a terribly disturbing dream about Murphy being attacked by a big, white sea […]
