Then came Pumpkin.
Pumpkin came home just one short week after Felix. They were both from the same litter and we found out that she was the only one left. Well, we couldn’t stand that thought, let alone that Felix was home alone for several hours every week by himself, so we picked up this sweetheart.

She was so scared when we first brought her home, which was surprising! We had only had Felix one week and he never showed a single sign of nervousness. For those of you who think animals don’t have feelings, well, you are mistaken. 
She found safe haven under the couch for a few hours, but when she knew we were okay, she quickly joined our family.

Pumpkin and Felix are entirely inseparable. This fact has brought about some beautiful “Kodak Moments”.

Although they are from the same litter, she is indeed her own person. She has just as much personality as Felix and is just as different. She is still a very nervous animal, and we have no clue as to why, but we just take it as one of her quirks. Every sign of affection is on her terms, but that’s okay. Once she decides to love you, there’s not enough room for all of the love she gives!

Felix was our first addition to the family. He came home with us in the fall of 2008. At the time, Shaun was working late into the evening, so I was home by myself until around 1 or 2 in the morning. Well, this being my first apartment and first time living away from home, I was pretty nervous being by myself at night. My nervousness would soon become eased with our adoption of Felix. A woman Shaun worked with had posted a flyer in the office saying that her cat had kittens and that they needed to rehome.

On a side note, I have always been an animal person but never much of a cat person.

I was unsure about getting a kitten, but seeing as how our apartment complex only accepted cats, that would be just fine with me! So, home came Felix.

From that moment on, I was cat person. He was so sweet and calm, but definitely interested in everything! He helped ease my feelings of nervousness because now I was never home alone!

No matter how much I try, I will never even begin to describe the amount of personality this boy has. He fetches (yes, really!), he cuddles, he chases, he naps, he loves having his belly pet…he just loves!

I still find it hard to believe that he is not a baby anymore!  But no matter how much he grows, he is still my first baby boy..the boy that couldn’t even reach his food without standing on the edge of the bowl. How cute is that??!!

He’s all grown up now, with just as much personality as ever!

Welcome to My Story!

Hello, null void. I have heard wonderful things about you. It seems customary that I should introduce myself to you, but then again, that’s what the side bar is for, no? So, if you want to learn the basics about me, look no further than just to the right.

I am beginning this blog as a way to document my adventures, my love for interior decorating and design, as well as other things I enjoy and would love to share with you. As the story goes, I have a lot to say and share, but also a lot to learn. I look forward to the adventure we are going to share and the new friends that I look forward to making.

We’ll begin our story with what brings me here. My fiancĂ©e and myself have decided to make a tremendous change in our lives. We have chosen to continue our lives in a place that we adore – New England! We are so excited to continue our journey and lives together in a place that we feel is where we belong. This is not going to be easy (moving the 800+ miles from West Virginia to New England, that is) but we are determined that we belong in that tremendously beautiful and friendly part of our country. Shaun and I, along with our two cats and dog (I’ll talk about my love of animals later ;) are planning to continue our journey and make the trek to New England this summer!

I do hope you’ll join us in this exciting journey. Here goes nothin’!
