My heart is broken today for my dear friend Joni, who had to say goodbye to sweet 15-year-old Wager (aka "Pawsome") today. But my heart is happy for having spent the last few years hiking and kayaking with them. Joni and I lost touch for a while after she left Hallmark, but we've more than made up for lost time, and I feel immeasurably blessed for that. I'll always remember our outings with our "packs" as some of my very happiest moments, and I'm looking forward to many more.
Pets are so easy to love and so impossible to get over, and they never live as long as you wish. Pawsome is one we wish could stay forever. I hope he's snuggled up with my Gypsy girl and Atom bomb right now. Farewell, sweet boy.
I love drawing, telling stories, good friends, good food, traveling, animals, and discovering inspiration and adventure wherever I may be. I hike, run, Scuba dive, rock climb, snowboard... and take a lot of photos. Insatiable curiosity. Never miss an opportunity for fun. And I capture it all with my camera and my sketchbook, 'cause I'm a ninja like that.
