In Loving Memory of Luna

I haven't been able to write this post until now because our loss of Luna was so unexpected and quick. We adopted Luna in March of 2009 from the Northern CA Lab Rescue group and thought she was only 4 years old at that time. She provided us with so much joy, love and comfort in the short time we were blessed with her. Luna loved carbs, especially tortillas, she loved snuggling and hanging out. She passed away suddenly 3 weeks ago due to an enlarged liver and at that time we learned she was really 10 years old. We are still heartbroken to lose our chica, but to know she was 10 and not 6 like we thought, made us feel a teensy bit better that she had lived her last years with us. We love and miss you, Luna. This is a pic of both Luna and Daphne - my best girls.

My Valentines

I am in love. I am in love with my husband Russell, but also our life together and the wonderful children we share. I love JackaMaya with all heart and each day my heart bursts a little more with pride and emotion. I hope the seams are strong enough to support this heart of mine as it keeps on growing.

Vacation, all I ever wanted!

If you know me, it is no secret how much I love Mexico, especially Tulum. We scrapped and saved and enjoying Thanksgiving week at our favorite resort, Dreams.

Swimming Lessons

It is the thick of summer, and my kids are loving our summer of swimming at the Rec Center! They take swim lessons almost every day and then many days we stay for open swim. Just 2 years ago, Jack was deathly afraid of swim lessons and now he is learning to dive! The progress and courage are amazing. Maya is a fish! She can sit criss cross apple sauce under water while holding her breath, she can swim under water and she jumped off the diving board this week! I am so proud of them!

In Memory of Daphne

My sweet Daphne passed away a short time ago in her sleep. She has been such an awesome and loving and happy dog all 15 years of her life. I got her as a tiny puppy when she was 2 months old when it was just the 2 of us. Then, our family grew and she loved each of us so much. I will miss her happy panting, her loyalty, her smiles, her stealing of food from an unattended plate, her rolling around and barking every afternoon, her love of water and the sprinkler and everything else about my sweet chica. RIP my Daphne Guadalupe Aguacita Cabo San Lucas Norton Johnson. I will miss you...
