I can still remember my older sister and I singing Kenny Rogers’ Islands in the Steam into our hairbrushes as kids. We were obsessed (and apparently a little nerdy, now that I think about it).

Living with 3 cats, there’s never a dull moment. While there can be times of frustration (think toilet training 3 cats), for the most part, they bring me great joy.
Lily and Atticus, the youngest of the 3 at just over a year old, are still very playful. They will chase each other around the house for hours before, finally, finding a comfy spot to nap.
Today I’m sharing with you a favorite [...]
