Summer Edition Remix: 4:30




Top: LOFT, gifted  /  Skirt:  Kathie Lee, thrifted  /  Shoes:  Prediction, thrifted  /  Belt:  Came with a shirt  /  Earrings: Ever So Lovely, with gift card

It happened!  I finally got the kittens in a picture!  I, meaning my husband, of course.  The gray kitten is Smokey and the buff kitten is Cucumber.

I have nothing to say about my clothes today.

Unfortunately, the mama cat passed on this morning.  Or, most likely, last night.  She was hit by a car in front of our driveway and we found her this morning.  She was never an indoor cat or anything like that.  In fact, the one time my husband tried to pick her up when she was a teeny tiny kitten, she bit through his fingernail.  Butter (that was her name) liked being near us, but not too near us, if you know what I mean.  Basically, she liked our food and, occasionally, our distant company.  During the cold months, we let her sleep in the garage at night and kept food/water and a litter box in there for her.  

The night she birthed the kittens, she was all but howling to come inside.  As if she knew she'd be safe at our house.  Even through all the hassle of taking care of the kittens (even now!), I felt and still feel a little special knowing that she chose our house as her babies' birth place.

I'm going to miss her little face at our back door.

  1. gah! i love this outfit on you! you look so classy and timeless, and i like your little belt knot (okay, but when don't i like that?). i also do the reverse of the royal 'we' ('i' means 'us' or 'actually just my husband but i'm taking some credit anyways') all the time.

    i'm very sorry about butter, and if the post office is willing, i would take a kitten... but somehow i doubt they would like that...

  2. Aw, I teared up when I read the mother died! And I would definitely feel special knowing she chose your house. The kittens are SO SO cute. Definitely the best accessory for an outfit ;)

    1. Thank you. I'm a little teary-eyed myself, as the kittens have been slightly clingier last night and this morning. They are the sweetest little accessories! haha
