It may be years until the day my dreams will match up with my pay...
Living in the city has its peaks and pitfalls. One thing I feel guilty about is having an itty bitty apartment with no yard for Miku to play in. I can't wait until the day I can afford a bigger place with even a tiny yard. In the meantime, one of my very favorite things to do is take Miku to the dog park. There's a huge, beautiful park close to the Brooklyn Bridge with gorgeous scenery; it's Miku's favorite spot to play. She usually runs around and plays with the other pups but always checks in with us to make sure we're still nearby. Bobby's work schedule has been extraordinarily hectic, so we took full advantage of his one day off (in two weeks!) and spent it with our winningest lovey dovey puppy.
Is there a happier place than a park full of joyful pups? I can't think of many off the top of my head.
I bought this sweater at a thrift shop and altered it. It had a turtleneck and awkward sleeves. I gave it a scoop neck and used the leftover rib knit to trim some shoulder cutouts.
I also found this necklace buried deep inside of an old purse's pocket. I thought it was lost forever! I love this necklace. Bobby thinks it's a chicken but it's two girls kissing. I got it a long time ago but my hard drive crashed and I lost the pictures. Then I lost the necklace. Go figure. At least I found it again. Equal rights for all!
The city is looking oh so pretty. I'm dreading the colder months ahead but I'm thrilled about the holidays! I've already promised myself that 2011 is going to be my year. I am determined to move to a bigger place with more space for the little critters to play. It wouldn't hurt to have more room to work in, either.
