Goodbye Kansas City

February 16, 2014

The truck is loaded and the house is empty. The dogs are strapped in my back seat, and Pete’s car is stuffed to the brim. Today is the beginning of our new adventure!

Up until this moment, it was easy to dream of the positive points (warmer weather, a new start, no snow, a great career opportunity, exploration and change), and ignore the challenging points (saying goodbye, packing up the studio, and leaving family & friends behind).

It’s helpful to know that we’ll be back in just a handful of months, but it’s still hard to say goodbye to all of you! You have brought love, happiness, generosity, support and friendship into our lives, and you have helped to create the people we are today!

Thank you and see you soon!

Mister J Turns 13

February 12, 2014

I guess Joey’s big birthday present this year is a stressful week of packing, road tripping and moving into a rental home! I know it’s going to be a rough week for him, but I feel confident that once he feels the warm Arizona sun on his back, he’ll start to relax and learn to love his new home. He’s always searching the house for patches of sun to lay in. No matter how small they are, he’ll curl up and sun bathe. Once he realizes he has a fenced in back yard that is full of sun, I imagine he will be spending a lot of time outside soaking in the rays!

Joey may be 13 today, and he may spend a lot of time sleeping, but he still finds time to be ornery, feisty and playful.

He’s not much of a kisser or a hugger, but happy tail wags…he gives lots of those, and constant companionship…he’s all over it! Joey’s best trait is that he’s always by my side. He has a bed or some place comfy to lay in every room that I hang out in. If I’m in that room, he’s there with me…in his comfy spot!

He’s our scruffy, silver haired, handsome, adorable, little man!
