Happy New Year!!!

Wow, did the holiday season get away from me!  What a month we had in December - both the good and the bad.  A loss, an illness, an adoption and the holidays themselves and their accompanying commitments meant I didn't get a chance to blog at all!  It's a new year and I am back to blogging.

On December 6, we lost our sweet Jake to Valley Fever, a fungal infection that he got in all of his organs.  He was only 6 years old.  We only had him for 14 months but he was just the best dog ever!  Thanks to American Brittany Rescue for rescuing Jake and allowing us to adopt him.  We hit the "Jake-pot" with him and miss him terribly.


If you know  me, you knew I couldn't be without a fur baby for very long!  On December 28, we adopted Rylee through American Brittany Rescue.  This little love bug came all the way from Salt Lake City, Utah!  If it had been in July, I would have just picked her up while being there for Stampin' Up! convention but I certainly couldn't wait that long.  She was put on a transport to Reno and then another volunteer took her to Truckee where we picked her up.  Isn't she a doll?

Another reason I am glad to have my fur baby is that Cassidy (yeah, that's her in the picture with Rylee) headed back up to Bozeman, Montana, for college so she only got to play with Rylee for a week.

Just wanted to bring you up to date on the goings on at my place.  Back to cards tomorrow!

Forever Stampin',
