Her Spirit

Nikki has been my dog (aka baby bear), for seven years now. Right now she is curled up around my feet smelling of shampoo from her recent bath. I began thinking about our last vet visit. I took her in for what I thought was a broken tail. But it turned out to be sprained due to excessive wagging. I had never heard of such a thing before! But, if a dog were to get would be her. Even though she is a little accident prone, she really is an amazingly sweet and happy dog who evidently wags her tail too much. :) Nikki's basic needs are food, water, and LOVE. When I am in one of my selfish or crabby moods, I often look at her. All day, every day she is peaceful, content, and ready to give and receive love. There is so much beauty in her spirit.

Wedding Memories

As lovers of the snow, it was hard to imagine that in Richmond on our pre-selected wedding day we would have 14 inches of snow! While only half the guest list was able to make it, and there were many touch-and-go all worked out and even better than I imagined. Most people said "at least your wedding was full of memories and stories to tell your future children". They are right, but the snow was minor on the memory scale for me. Marrying my true love will always reign supreme. :)
