Hello, dear readers, and welcome to Thursday! It’s been a rather hectic week at work for me, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel of this hiring marathon I’ve been on, so that’s good.
That’s not the main news this week, though. The star of the show this week (as, let’s be honest, is true every week) is Nova! Her one year adoption anniversary was on Sunday, and her 3rd birthday (according to the estimate by the rescue) was Tuesday, so on Sunday we had our families over to celebrate this magical beast we’re so lucky to live with.
As my husband and I ran around cleaning the apartment Sunday morning, Nova was a bit unsure about the whole thing:
Once people started to arrive, though, she had a great time. She got a burger and some cheese while the rest of us ate burgers, brats, corn on the cob, and potato salad (she scarfed her burger so fast I didn’t get any photos). Then she opened some presents:
This was a lot of excitement for Nova, and she got a bit sleepy mid-party:
Then, while the humans had peach crisp and ice cream, Nova got a cookie:
Among the presents was a Harry Potter-themed BarkBox that arrived that morning. Nova looked very sharp in her Slytherin jersey:
After everyone went home, she settled in to chew on her new fishie Benebone and then rested on the couch with me:
All in all, I’d say the party was a hit! In addition to getting to spoil our baby girl, it was the first time in the nearly 12 years that my husband and I have been together that our families were all in one physical location at the same time, so that was another fun milestone.
I think I’ll wrap things up here for this week – hope you’re all hanging in there and that these Nova photos have brightened your day!
