We lost a piece of our heart this week.
Our sweet little senior rescue dog crossed over.
Her name was Peanut, she now rests peacefully under the pear tree. Though she was part of our lives for only a short four years and just a speck of a dog her absence feels big and all-consuming.
Snow is on the way. A hush is in the air, that stillness that always seems to come before snowfall.
Orange blossom honey drizzled in my tea.

So many of you have asked – thank you for your interest, but yes, it’s been a bit of a sore subject, leaving me at a loss for words, or words that could be repeated in polite company.

I fumbled around in the darkness, feeling for a flashlight. It’s 4:30 am, the power has gone out and it is twenty degrees outside. The dogs need to go out to the bathroom. Peanut can no longer navigate the stairs on her own, so I clumsily balance the flashlight, the dog and me down the stairs and out the door. Carefully, trudging down the frost-coated porch steps in my fashion forward fuzzy slippers and robe, so as not to face plant me and the dog.
