in may our life got all kinds of complicated, hectic and sad, but there was of course some goodness in there too.
summer started flirting with us a little, giving the squirrels and i whole entire days to spend outside soaking up some much needed vitamin d & hanging our clothes out to dry. i was also treated to breakfast in bed on mother's day, had a few extra fun hangouts with some of my favorite ladies and went to salt & straw at least five times which honestly isn't enough, it's so delicious!! oh, and we got to eat all those avocados that we brought home in april
jake's family very suddenly & unexpectedly moved back from eugene, oregon to the farm where we have been living since last september. the sudden & unexpectedness of this big change made it physically and emotionally exhausting for all of us, so much so that in a fit of exhaution i dropped a cabinet on my face and split my upper lip wide open. it was bloody & painful & gross. once we all got settled and rested we were able to start enjoying living close to each other again. we like being able to see them whenever we want. right now we are living very close, all at the farm, but soon we will be moving back to portland.
you might want to stop reading here if you're tender hearted... the end of the month was a tremendously sad one for our little family. our boy kitty, milo, who was our babe for six years, one month and fifteen days was hit by a car on the road in front of our house. losing a pet was much harder than we could have imagined it would be and i find myself still looking for him or calling after him all the time. i miss all the silly things he used to do like walking over to me and laying all over any and everything i was trying to work on or batting his food out of the dish and eating each piece one at a time off of the kitchen floor or twisting himself into the strangest positions when he'd sleep or sleeping in bureau drawers. i miss him a whole bunch.
that's all for now, stay tuned for part 3.
