Photo of the Week No. 20: “Birthday Wishes”

May 14, 2018

Today is my nephew Jordan’s ninth birthday, so naturally he is the star of this Photo of the Week! Our family celebrated the occasion yesterday during a makeshift Mother’s Day/Gender Reveal/Birthday Party, and Jordan was the center of attention at several points throughout the day — just the way he likes it. LOL. This image was taken moments before he blew out his candles. I call this Photo of the Week “Birthday Wishes” for obvious reasons. I love how there’s a visible twinkle in his eye. It’s like he just came to the realization that he just might attain what he’s about to ask for. Jordan, I hope all your wishes come true and pray for many many more birthdays spent celebrating your precious life! Love you, nephew 🙂

Photo of the Week No. 5: “Birthday Boy”

January 29, 2018

I can’t believe that my geriatric guy, Berkeley Buster DeVoe, turned 12 years old last week. The birthday boy is my pride and joy, and makes my life so much more rich. He’s my protector, cuddle bunny, smile bringer, mischief maker, cover thief, handsome hound and precious fur baby. The Berkster recently had surgery on his neck to remove a lump, which thankfully wasn’t cancerous. While he heals, he’s been in a donut (a gentler alternative to the cone of shame) to prevent him from scratching his stitches. This photo was captured moments after I took the donut off to let his wounds breathe and treated him to some Beggin’ Strips, one of his all-time favorite snacks. Berkeley may be getting up there in age, but he’s showing no signs of slowing down. Feast your eyes on “Birthday Boy,” my fifth Photo of the Week, depicting Berkeley lounging in his bed with his party favors at the ready.
