Mark and I discovered today why owning pets will rip your heart out. 
We had to make a very tough decision, and tomorrow our beloved Russell will be laid to rest. 
We love him, and we are crushed beyond words. 

Thank you Russ, for being the most amazing cat anyone could ever ask for.
You have won over the hearts of many a cat-hater and enforced to anyone who met you exactly why cats are so awesome. 
We will miss you so, SO much.

Wearing my Christmas jeans, my Christmas sweater, my Christmas necklace, and my Christmas bracelet.
Using my Christmas immersion blender to make cream of tomato soup, and our Christmas bacon [yah, you read that right] for BLT's.
And let's not forget the Christmas present to myself - the pesto tucked away in the freezer. Little pockets of summer.
We are spoiled, and lucky, and so very thankful.
