A beautiful tribute.

In a recent post I discussed how the loss of my pet cat and best friend affected me. I also shared that an incredibly talented friend of mine had started working on a tribute piece for me. I was having a tough night two days back and suddenly she surprised me with the finished product. I obviously cried my eyes out, but it was the good kind of cry. I never had the opportunity to bury my baby, and I finally have a sense of closure and remembrance that is worthy of what she meant to me.

ShanĂ©, you have been a blessing beyond my wildest expectations. I am truly touched by what you’ve done for me. Your spontaneous acts of kindness have brightened my life in such unexpected ways! And you’re a seriously talented lady, never stop making beautiful things! I am so proud to call you friend!

You can follow her on Twitter or Instagram to see her latest work.

Beware the white rabbit.

A very close friend of mine gave me a white rabbit earlier this year. I was feeling a bit down and having something fluffy around always brightens things up. Oliver spent many nights snuggled up next to me on the couch, and we bonded over reruns and old films. Then Spring came and my cute lil’ bunny turned into a tiny terror! I pity the fool that thinks he can jump over my wall, that rabbit will eat you alive! I’ve heard geese make excellent guard dogs, but a bunny hopped up on hormones makes an excellent evil genius! This creature tried to rape my cat… I shit you not. But despite his incredible rage, I kinda like having a bad-ass-bunny! It makes me giggle to imagine headlines like: “Violent Criminal Busted By Ruthless Bunny Rabbit” or “Serial Killer Scared Of Cottontail”. Everyone needs someone ruthless in their corner, I have my backyard bruiser ^_^
