New Year, New Planner

Buying a new planner is one of my favorite parts of the new year!

Meow Monday: Welcome to SF!

I’m easing my way into the new year a week late & feeling a bit lazy! So let’s get back to an old favorite–Meow Monday! Tali is settling in beautifully.  She really blossomed in MS–she’s much more social, less skittish, and still ravenous for pets.  She also still loves to sleep on top of clothes–these… Continue reading Meow Monday: Welcome to SF!
