When I was three years old, a kitten with a smashed paw showed up on our back steps late one night. My parents thought it had been stepped on by one of the cows next door and immediately rushed it to a family friend veterinarian. When the kitten came home a few days later from the vet with three legs, we had all fallen in love with him. He was now our cat and I was allowed to name him! I don’t remember this, but my mom says I immediately said “Luke!” after my best friend at the time 🙂
Warm days like today make it feel like it’s almost time for summer! I haven’t been in school for years, but the first really warm day always makes me feel restless like a student waiting for that free feeling of summer break 🙂
You know those people you meet that feel like an instant friend? Julien is one of them 🙂 She is warm, outgoing, and talks a mile a minute (just like me). A few months ago, I was walking down the street and had one of those I’m-pretty-sure-I-know-you-but-I-don’t-know-how moments.
