Congratulations, David and Miguel!

We've all waited a long time for this joyous occasion!!!

Congratulations, David and Miguel! Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness together. We love you both very much.

Goodbye, Sharla

The Celebration on Sharla's life was held early this afternoon at Immigrant Point in the Presidio in San Francisco.

Unfortunately, I was unable to attend, as I have a wedding of two very dear friends in Sonoma in the early evening.

Linda just sent me these photos. I burst into tears seeing them. We were at Judy's house yesterday putting the ladders, rope and photos all together. I'm so happy with how it all turned out. It's just perfect. Linda suggested that people bring their glassybaby to place along the ledge. I brought a special one from me yesterday Linda and Judy brought for me.

Immigration Point is a special place for all involved in the Immediate Impact Walk. It is where we began and ended our 3-day, 55-mile journey for the first three years. It is a beautiful spot.

It's been a rough couple of weeks. I spent part of this week at Sharla's house with our friends helping Sharla's family (who all live out of state) sort through her things, and finding new homes for certain items. I took all the extra linens and towels and pet-related items to Animal Care & Control in San Francisco. I wasn't able to help as much as others, but I was happy to help a little.

Goodbye, sweet Sharla. We all miss you so much already, and we love you.

Photo shoot at Crissy Field

We had a play date with MIke and Kayak at Crissy Field this morning. They were running a little late, so I took advantage of a quiet (albeit, foggy) morning and took some photos of Wallace in front of a fog-covered Golden Gate Bridge.

Another play date with Jasper!!!

Wallace had another fun play date with Jasper yesterday. We're so happy to be able to spend so much time with him while JD and Ray are in town.

Pet Shenanigans

Wallace just brought his stuffed bunny up to the sofa and laid it in Olive's head while she was sleeping. These two are so funny together.

Our afternoon with high school friends

Thanks to Lucian and Eve (and their cute pup, Coco) for hosting us this afternoon! It is always a treat to catch up with this group.

Happy Birthday, Sharla

Dear Sharla,

Today is your 50th Birthday. Wish you were still here so we could all celebrate with you. Instead, I'll be having a (real!) drink tonight in your memory to celebrate your life and the wonderful friendship that you gave to so many. We all miss you so much already. My heart is aching. We love you so much. xo

We may be a little obsessed.
What a great production of an amazing show.

Still can't get enough of it.

Happy First Birthday, Olive!!!

Happy Birthday to our sweet little kitty!!

Happy First Birthday to our Olive!!

Olive is such a sweet little girl. We feel so lucky that she picked us. She's sweet, snuggly, playful, calm and funny. She loves being a lap kitty, and enjoys meeting new people. (although, she doesn't like the vacuum cleaner!). She never wakes us up in the middle of the night, and waits for us to wake up before she gives us morning snuggles in bed. She also loves her puppy!

Summer Cut!

Here are some photos from Wallace's trip to the groomer today.

The first was taken just after I had dropped him off (you can see there are plenty of other fluffy friends for him to mingle with while he's there), the second was taken when I arrived to pick him up, but he wasn't quite done yet. I took the photo through the window, because I didn't want to distract him or excite him. The last two photos are his "after" photos. 😊 This is my favorite haircut that he's had since we have been bringing him to the groomer. I really like how short the hair on his head is, compared to other times when it was much more poofy.

The Shaggy D.A.

It's been 10 weeks since Wallace's last haircut. As much as I love the Shaggy D.A. Look on him, it's time for another Summer Cut.

Wallace & Kayak at Ocean Beach

Wallace and Kayak had a terrific morning running on Ocean Beach and playing in the Pacific Ocean this morning.

Wallace was a wet, tired and sandy dog on the way home, but he was very happy.
