Fish and Cat



First and foremost, let us all take a moment to appreciate the amount of precious in the above shot. I don’t believe there are many things that compare to the cuteness of a 5yo in a snorkel mask. Amirite? Delia is especially grinny and dimply in this picture because it’s her first time “snorkeling” and getting a real glimpse of the ocean floor. We’ve found lots of sea treasures and made some new fishy friends including sand dollars, starfish and crabs.

SPEAKING of new friends

A few days ago our little family got a little bigger with the addition of our new feline friend, a very sweet and spunky, black fuzzy kitten by the name of Jean Valjean AKA Monsieur Le Maire. We’re still becoming acquainted with one another, however, it is certain that he much enjoys chasing his own tail, taking long naps, climbing furniture, and eating chicken recipe. Jean Valjean is a rescue kitty that was found outside of Sea Watch (a restaurant in Lauderdale By the Sea). He was a little skittish at first, but is very quickly warming up to us and his new surroundings. Anyways, this is him , rn, being very sleepy and kissy.


July has been good to us this year. A little hot and humid but good none the less. We’ve taken a trip to the Museum of Science and Discovery in Fort Lauderdale and checked out the very cute/ kid friendly Indie Craft Bizaar (which i’ll mention more about in a later post).  In only a few short weeks, Delia will enter kindergarten (which terrifies me) and I’ll be starting my fall semester classes. The time has come for me to really buckle down and get the apartment into order – donating outgrown and seldom worn clothes/shoes, decluttering the kitchen/bedroom, and buckling down on getting more organized. I hope everyone has had a wonderful summer and is ready to start the brand new school year!
