So much has happened since I last posted. I have lots of BIG NEWS!
For starters, in July, I became an aunt again. My brother and sister-in-law had a beautiful baby girl. She's the picture of perfection and everyone in the family is quite in love with her. There has been much "ooh"-ing and "aah"-ing and snuggling going on with the little bundle of joy. She has a thick head of hair, long fingers, and little sausages for legs and arms.
Later in July, Kendall and I added a new addition to our family as well. We adopted another dog! We found Daisy at our local shelter and after introducing her to Maple, we adopted her. She's a Cairn Terrier mix, and is so sweet and loving. Daisy and Maple are now real sisters, exploring together.
In other big news, I will be starting my Masters in about two weeks, and am so excited! Unfortunately, I will have to stop working at my current job; I needed a more flexible schedule and they weren't able to fit it in. So I will be a full-time student. I hope this means I can blog more, but will also be writing for Austin's Examiner.com on pet rescue in the Austin area. Exciting, no? There are a few other plans in the works, but more on that later.
In the midst of all this, I've been cooking and eating. And I will continue to do so! I'll be posting back here soon with some great recipes and ideas.
Until then...Keep eating!
