For one chrysanthemum to bloom

NEW YEAR + REAR VIEW: Friends this is likely the last Francis Friday. While our favorite black cat is riding high (usually hanging over a shoulder) he can be hard to photograph, and frankly, I'm having more fun hanging out with him than chasing after a photo. So enjoy the back end of Francis Friday- it seems over before it started.

WHAT'S NEW FOR FRANCIS? Well, he's been exploring the great outdoors, with a bit of trepidation on my part, but he seems to love it. He is very excitable about birds and squirrels, and has taken to hiding under a bush across my house to spy on birdies. So far, no luck in catching any! And, in a couple of weeks, Mr Velvet Balls takes a trip to vet to get a snip-snip preventing him from fatherhood, and hopefully will curb any sort of Tom Cat tomfoolery or wanderlust that may put him in harm's way.

We'll keep you posted via Instagram with new pics of my adorable Francis, just not on any sort of time table. You can follow his antics (and a few other kittens) by following the hashtag #francisthecat

RESOLUTION: Old is the New Awesome

LOVE YOUR VINTAGE. As we say goodbye to the spectacle that was our 2015, let us make room for some special remembrances. We lost some great ones, but we gained some new perspective on life. The new jobs, new friends, new hobbies have perhaps aided in a new way to seeing your world.  And those twists and turns that you've somehow marvelously maneuvered with the nimble graces of a cat, have added a bit of pepper to the dish, a trial-by-fire-flavor to be savored while you wonder just how is it you've managed to thrive in the Crucibles-R-Us sponsored middle of it all.  

The Citizen Resolution for 2016: LOVE YOUR VINTAGE.
 As the saying goes, what doesn't kill you makes your stronger, and you, my friend, just might be the metaphoric equivalent of Brian Shaw in a tutu. So frock on, Madame Bad-Ass. 

And here’s to more thrive and less jive for 2016.  

Regardless of your resolutions,
