stay warm

Here in Northern California, the weather is usually nice. We get all four seasons — spring, summer, autumn, and winter. When winter officially started this year, it wasn’t actually that cold. Today, however, was FREEZING… literally FREEZING. I know a lot of you live in parts of the world where you get to experience snow all the time, but where I live it hardly happens. Everything was frosted and icy this morning when I went to see my therapist.

((My appointment went well by the way! I’ve definitely come a long way since the beginning of this year. I’ll have to write up a post of how awesome this year has been for me. So far, this is the BEST year.))

Earlier this week, Hilo caught a cold. He was shivering, and his body temperature was warmer than usual. Anyway, he’s gotten much better with sleep and rest. To prevent them from being cold at night, they now have to wear clothes.

In the morning, my munchkins don't want to get out of bed. LAZIES! πŸ™‚

"...but Mom, do I have to?! It's way too cold to get up and start my day!"

Please make sure that if you have pets that usually stay outside, please have the heart to bring them into your home during the cold winter nights. You wouldn’t want to be out in the cold, and neither do they.

As promised, here’s a fun Kiki Art layout I recently completed. These papers are so unique and super pretty. The swirls and patterns on her paper are soooooo neat! Check it out:

….and a very BIG thank you to Sara for sending me a box filled with presents! You are too sweet!

She knows that I've got a thing for cupcakes. πŸ˜‰

See you all soon!

WARM wishes,
