Hello, everyone! I was absent from the blog-world for a few days in order to just concentrate on soaking up the sun at home. I was enjoying baking up a storm, relaxing, going out with friends, and everything Christmas-related. Rather than blabbing away, let me show you how my Christmas went down in pictures — since it’s more fun that way!
Cake Batter Bark a la How Sweet It Is.
All in all, Christmas was wonderful. I love spending time with people I usually don’t get to, and eating food that I generally steer clear of. In light of both my grandparents’ passing away this year, my heart was a little bit empty, but I just try to think that they’re still celebrating; they’re just somewhere else. I also have some really sad news… during the few days I was home, our little Mopsey passed away.
We found out that Mopsey had a brain tumor, amongst other illness’. It was his time. As many of you know, I brought Mopsey back from an animal shelter in November 2010 and we’ve loved him ever since. He was abused by his previous owners and had a ton of ailments but we loved him all the same. I sit here, typing this, trying not to blubber like a fool, but it’s really tough to love something so much and not be able to help it. We missed his little sweet face at Christmas, but we know that Mopsey is now in complete peace ❤
Sorry for the sad turn that this post had to take, but I couldn’t not recognize Mopsey during all of this. It’s so important to love and cherish everything in your life!
Have a good night, everyone. I hope the holiday’s have been more than generous to you.
