Last week I was meeting one of my fellow photographer friends for coffee at this corky coffee shop in Gilbert. As I was getting out of my car I saw a cat walking towards me...of course I bent down to pet the darn thing and the next thing I know the cat is IN MY CAR! It was love at first site and she knew I was a softy for sweet little strays...Yes, I was taken advatage of!
The phone call to John went as expected..."No, we are not keeping her Brittany" & " you have issues"...I knew what I needed to do, he had to meet this precious little girl and then he would be smitten...and he was! Of course, he still thought I had lost it, which I have no problem admitting I had...a long time ago.
So "Java" came home with us. She did great with the dogs who wanted nothing more than to sniff her bum and poke at her, she showed them who was boss by hissing at them a couple times.
I was so excited to have Java as a part of the family, we set up a room for her and got her some toys that she enjoyed playing with...of course her favorite was the basket and towel which wasn't what we initially got for her but quickly became her's.
On Saturday night while we were playing a game with our family we noticed Java wasn't around, we started looking around the house...no cat. We went outside and looked in our yard because she knew how to use the doggy door...no cat. I was frantic, I surprised even myself at how worried I was about our new addition...long story short it's been two days and still no sign of Java...our house is surrounded by tuna cans and I still have hope she might return. We have a collar on her so maybe someone with see her and give us a call. We miss her. Who knew such a little, independent animal could bring such joy and personality into our home!

With the Holidays here and Christmas around the corner I am feeling overwhelmed with thanks for my family, friends, and God's continued blessing. John and I are coming up on our year of marriage and I couldn't be more thankful for such a wonderful, attentive husband.
This is our first greeting card as a married couple!
I hope you all enjoy this time of year and take some time to truly live in the moment and capture the little blessings God will bring into your life.

John and I had the pleasure of hosting Turkey Day this year and let me tell you...I appreciate my mama a lot more!!!ha
It was so great to get John's side of the family all together for laughs, eating, and good quality time. We had 12 people staying with us which was a scary thought at first but it turned out really well.
I am loving getting to know my new family better, and looking forward to many more holidays with them. I love the Holidays! You always have an excuse to eat too much, stay up too late, and put off work too long!

Today John and I decided it would be best for our family to find our Shepherd pup a new home. Capri is a sweet girl, she brings so much joy into our home but there have been some instances that force us to question her aggression toward other dogs. She tends to play rougher with our other little guys and that makes us nervous at times. We HATE that it has come to this but we feel it is our best option and hers too. She is so lovable and sweet that I am feeling confident we will find her a good home with no other dogs.
It breaks my heart that it has come to this. The love and joy a dog can bring into your life is abundant and the loss of one is heart breaking. For the sake of our other pups and the little feet that will be stomping these carpets someday it is the safest option.
