Our own little “Super Bloom”

After endless rains, California is having an incredible Wildflower Super Bloom. Mama and I are now getting to experience it on a smaller scale in our backyard. A single poppy that we planted in a pot in last year’s garden turned into this gorgeous array of white and orange blooms. It’s made that section of…

My turn at the salon

Yesterday Mama had the pleasure of an excellent haircut, and today was my turn at the salon! I always love to see our stylist, Matthew, and let him work his magic on my locks. My pixie cut had gotten dramatically long in front, so I was happy to have a fresh, shorter take on it.…
