Angels in our adventures

Mama and I went on an adventure to San Francisco today, because we wanted to see the Rube Goldberg exhibit at the Contemporary Jewish Museum. We’ve been looking forward to this day trip for weeks, though we nearly had to postpone, as I wasn’t feeling well last night. Having grown up learning about Rube Goldberg’s…

A loving Thanksgiving

We celebrated Thanksgiving with our neighbors who we’ve become close with this year. Mama and I were honored to be included in their family, and we had a wonderful time.

366 Days of #OneGoodThing

A nice Thanksgiving

Today we celebrated Thanksgiving at home in our pajamas and it was awesome. We watched the “National Dog Show” on TV and talked about our beloved Abby. It’s our first Thanksgiving without her and we miss her dearly; we’re especially grateful for every moment we had with our sweet girl. Mama and I made her…
