We’re having a little boy! A boy! One of each! Needless to say, we are beyond thrilled. Just like with last time, we would have been stoked either way, but this is pretty awesome. I’m fairly certain that Essley is going to love bossing her little brother around. And we all can’t wait to meet this little man who is already loved so much.
A tiny stray kitten is safe and with a new, loving forever home, thanks to the persistence and compassion of a New York City police officer.
According to the New York Police Department, Brooklyn residents reported a tiny kitten who was stuck inside the engine of a mini van.
Responding officers arrived and tried to get the cat out of the van, to no avail. Then Officer John Passarella showed up.
Officer Passarella, who is also a volunteer firefighter, told ABC News that he immediately slid underneath the car to get to the cat but the little feline kept getting away from him, retreating farther into the underbelly of the car.
We leave next week for a trip up to Door County, Wisconsin. And although we’re not camping (or even glamping; we’re staying in a rented condo), the trip feels like an outdoor adventure in my mind. When I was a little girl, my family drove up to Wisconsin to go camping in the woods every summer, so maybe that’s the reason. Or maybe it’s because it’s a good 5-6 hour road trip to get to there, which these days, feels like a long one. Or maybe it’s because we’ll be doing a lot of hiking and outdoor activities once we’re there. Whatever the reason, I’ve had summertime road trips and camping adventures on the mind, man. When I lived out west in my 20s (Colorado, Oregon, and California), I lived in places that were deep in nature, and going ‘adventuring,’ as we liked to call it, was a regular part of daily life. It’s admittedly been a long (long) time, and this trip is far from what we did in those days, but I’m excited nonetheless. The images you see above are the types that have filled my daydreams the past few days. Maybe they’re stereotypical or overly ethereal or even kind of cheesy when they’re all put together as part of my outdoor exploration fantasy, but I’m feeling them. I really am.
Have you gone on any camping or outdoor adventures lately, or do you have plans for any this summer?
