A Sad Day to Remember

Teresir the giant orange fluff monster was my best friend for many, many years. He showed up on campus in front of my dorm when I was 19. I took it upon myself to buy cat food for TeresA (the dorm was Teresa Hall so everyone called the cat Teresa) rather than watch him waste away... I fed him under the bushes and even brought him in secretly when it would rain. He became MY cat.

When I was informed that Teresa was to be put down by the powers that be on campus, I announced my intentions of taking him with me when I moved to an apartment at the end of the semester. So that's how it came to be that one big orange cat came home with me for Christmas break, only to find out that SHE was a HE. TeresA became TereSIR and he lived with me in many places and in several states until 2 years ago last Sunday, November 23.

Even just typing about the loss of Teresir makes me tear up. He was such a wonderful friend to me... even if he was a grumpy old man most of the time! He was always there for me and I want to post a few photos of him for all of you to see what a gorgeous kitty he was with his long fur and his gianormous eyes!

This is me holding Teresir... I think I must have been somewhere around 24-ish. Remember, the camera adds 10 pounds... and that's a LOT for a cat!

Here is he destroying my blinds. He loved sitting in the window!

The monster on the patio of my first place in Florida!

He really did have wonderful big eyes!

And a few basking in the sunlight, just a few months before he died.

I know Teresir is waiting for me in Heaven! I miss him so much!

A Few Recent Photos

of my pups...
Max loooooves stuffed animals. He picked up this teddy bear, flopped down onto his bed, and passed out.

Apple goes bonkers over the dino cuz! I squeak it and she makes wookie sounds and jumps around trying to grab it!

And Professor... he got a furcut! We had started thinking that he was gaining weight and he might need to go on a diet... but then they cut off all that insane fur and lo and behold! He's skinny under there!

Off the subject...

So it's nothing to do really with furries... but...
Some of you may (or may not) know that I got married in May.
And some of you may (or may not) know that we had our fabulous reception at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens at night!
I was just interviewed by Heidi of Truly Engaging!! You can read all about my flowers and plants HERE!
Heidi was super nice and I'm so excited that she deemed my story deserving of an entire blog post! If you are engaged or just like to read about decorations and gifts and things of that sort, her blog is definitely the place to go!
And because I can't post without a photo... here is one of my favorite shots of Chris, taken by the fabulous Scarlett Lillian.

And my fun cake/cake topper. The topper was handmade by Debbie Garrity who really listened to what I wanted! I'd totally recommend her too!

Thanks for letting me be all giddy! : )

Sneak Peek

I had a fun client shoot with three beautiful doggies this weekend! We were originally going to shoot at their community playground where their mom takes them to play on the slides (!!!) but there were a lot of children there having a birthday party so we relocated to their backyard.
The shoot went really well and the pups were very well behaved!
Here is the very first picture of the shoot! This is Bart... he's Roxy and Ryder's big brother. Note that his ears imitate the shape on his chest... cute!!

And here's a shot of all three!

You'll have to wait for more... I have almost 400 photos to sift through for the best, edit, and get in an online gallery! Weeeee!

Uni Says

Happy Howl-O-Ween!
I know she's a bit late... but she hopes you all had a wonderful one anyway!

Now I am off to worry myself sick about my client shoot this afternoon. Please don't rain, Mother Nature!!
I get so nervous when I have shoots... I hope that will eventually go away someday. I'm such a worrisome sort. I worry that I'll forget something. I worry that I won't get good shots. I worry that the dogs won't like the treats I bring so I bring several different ones.

Maybe I'll go have a slice of pumpkin bread that my sister-in-law baked for us. That might take my mind off things! : )
