I’ll admit it. This year has been hard. The weather in Seattle has been awful, giving me very little opportunity to do what I love most (pet photography), my health has been crummy, and my personal life has had it’s fair share of ups-and-downs. After a long-delayed reaction, I’ve been grieving the loss of my mom, and am convinced I’m feeling the effects of Seasonal Affective Disorder, as many Seattleites are these days. Through it all, this sweet, furry little girl has been there by my side. She has been funny, sensitive, compassionate, and has loved me no matter what kind of grumpy, sad, depressed mood I’ve been in. I can’t wrap words around how much I love this girl or how much she means to me, especially during the hard times in life.
The sun is finally coming out, and I’m excited about the near and far future, I know my SAD will lift along with the rainclouds, and I have made big strides in my grieving process, so the only way to go from here is up, and I’m feeling much better already. (And I’m *really* excited about being in the sun in San Diego in 4 weeks). And I know that all along the upswing, Fergie will still be there. Fergie I know you don’t read my blog, but just in case you sneak into my home office in the middle of the night when I’m dreaming about sunnier days, I just want to say: I love you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for being here. Your warm heart and soft kisses mean the world to me.
