Jasper Lily’s “Spa Vacation”

Recently I had to travel for a conference for work in Portland, OR. Now we all know that Jasper Lily is small enough to travel with me under the seat on the plane BUT I did this trip alone. I thought it would be good for me to explore Portland on my own without having […]

Jasper Lily says “cheers for fall”!

It’s been a while since I’ve updated Jasper Lily’s blog. Like her madre, she is not a fan of the heat and it has been a very HOT and at times, humid summer here in Los Angeles. We live by the coast and our beach casa has no AC nor means for AC and the […]

Jasper Lily’s Summer Vacation

WOW…. what a trip it was – on so many levels! We’ve been back almost 3 weeks now and it has taken me this long to even think about blogging about it. In a nutshell, it was a GREAT trip! Our journey took us 9 hours north to Redding, CA for the night. Then onward […]

Jasper Lily’s Adopteversary!

One year ago – today – June 16 – I drove 2 hours to meet “Julia” (aka Coyoyita) soon to be known¬†as Jasper Lily. It wasn’t love at first site. It wasn’t even like. With a great deal of guilt, trepidation and a bit of hope, I welcomed this girl into my home. The home […]

Jasper Lily hit the road for the long weekend

Jasper Lily and I needed (well mostly me) to get the heck out of dodge (aka LA) for the long weekend. I was desperate to go someplace quiet, peaceful, surround myself with nature and breathe in clean air. Los Angeles seems to be emotionally killing me every single day and I was desperate to find […]

Jasper Lily at 11 months!

WOW… I simply cannot believe Jasper Lily has been a part of my life for almost an entire year. We are definitely looking forward to a happy celebration for that milestone. Especially considering I wasn’t even sure I was going to keep her for the first couple of months (yes… looking back, it was months). […]

Jasper Lily at 10 months (and her spring break vacation)

Well Jasper Lily is still with me! ūüôā We made it through the first angel-vesary of my beloved Shelby Lynne and Jasper has really come out of her shell. I see more and more of her personality all the time. In honor of (or in anticipation of) her 10 month adopt-vesary, we traveled back up […]

Jasper Lily at nine months!

I cannot believe I have had Jasper Lily for nine months. She has come SUCH a long way! I am so proud of her and how she has let her walls down and embraced her new life. I also cannot believe how much¬†her personality has changed from the first couple of months. She is still […]

Jasper Lily at eight months

Oops… I counted last month as her 6th month anniversary of finding her fur-ever home with me but it actually was her 7th. No wonder it felt longer! So Jasper has been with me for 8 long months! ¬†Sometimes ¬†I can’t believe that she hasn’t always been a part of my life and other times, […]
