Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder?

The I can't believe it's been about seven months since the last time I posted a blog. Did you even notice I was gone?

So much has happened in the time that I have been gone. I'm not sure I would be able to get the whole story out or even know where to start. The 2017 #HouMarathon, the twin's last chemo and radiation treatments, me accepting a new position with Susan G. Komen Houston, Aunt Sandy practically in remission, I lost Lola, I got Jewels, my second trip to Denver, my little sister's wedding...the list goes on and on.

It's been a very rocky eight months. Personally, professionally, any way you want to look at. But I'm moving into a great place in my life right now and that's all I can ask for. 

I was devastated just over a month ago when I lost Lola. She was having trouble breathing one night and by lunch the next day the vet had told me there was nothing they could do. Tumor in her left atrium. I  had to let her go that afternoon. 

This was just weeks after I had started my new job - Communications Director with Susan G. Komen Houston. A position that just sort of fell into my lap. And when the ED found out about twin, she said of course you were meant to be here right now. 

Fast forward a few more weeks, sitting in a bar one night scrolling through IG and I see Jewels staring up at me. Up for adoption at a rescue I follow. I emailed them immediately. And on Tuesday, May 2nd she arrived in Houston. 

Look at those leg muscles. Ignore the rest of the pic. 

2nd year in a row - 3rd in my age group. 

Uncle Jay was there when twin decided the hair had to go.

Best thank you card ever. 

Bc I do not currently have enough space for a dining room table, this is what it looked like when I was busy.

Key broke in the lock on my way to 6:30am yoga :/
