I took this picture today and it brings me such joy I just had to share it. It makes me happy for several reasons --
1) I love how the color of the kitchen walls pops out in such a vibrant way
2) I love that I have cards and pictures from people who love me to put up on the fridge
3) I love how fearless my cat Amelie is. She is my hero with her intrepid spirit and I am constantly amazed at how nothing intimidates her. She believes in her core that she is the queen of the universe...and she very well may be. I would like to be more like her -- the way she studies the world with such interest, the way she can never leave a place unexplored, the way she never backs down from what she wants -- all while maintining silky smooth hair:)
4) I love that her new plastic claw covers keep her from ruining the couches -- and how adorable it is that they match the kitchen walls. My cat has a manicure! And she is the only one I know who can get away with green nails:)


  1. That pale-eyed fridge sphinx is spooky killer-cool!

    Regardless the species, fearless, "don't mess with me" gurlz rawk! click (youtube her in action)

  2. Amelie would definitely be a sharpshooter if only she had opposable thumbs:)

  3. She looks like a cookie jar sitting up there :)
