I'm a Crazy Cat Lady, OK? 
So a few years ago, 
I figured I needed to start my Hello, Kitty Collection. 
Blame it on Shawn.

Day 22. My birthday, January 22: Nice

A nice cuddle with Marley. A not so nice thing - I seem to have deleted all the photos I took with my better camera today. And I seem to have trashed everything on this camera's memory card EXCEPT for the shots I took with it today. 

I had some very cute shots 
Franklin licking my face 
cuddling with Chester
Ellie in my lap
some pretty shots of Bethany...
~ lost ~
What a nitwit.
Happy birthday to me.

Meg Cross Menzies was tragically killed by a drunk driver while out for her morning run on January 13, 2014. As an avid runner, member of the Richmond Road Runners Club, and Boston marathoner, she was a member of the running family nationwide. In her honor, our hope is to raise awareness of drunk driving, texting and driving, and overall safety of runners and cyclists everywhere.

This Saturday, January 18, 2014, no matter what your distance, no matter where you live, run for Meg. Take in the fresh air, be aware of your surroundings, keep your headphones on low, feel the heaviness in your lungs, the soreness in your legs, and be grateful for it--for all of it. The sweat, the pain, the wind, the cold…everything. Be grateful for that moment.

Feel free to post pictures of yourself pre-run or post-run, post your distance, post your thoughts, prayers, condolences with the hashtag #megsmiles. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. Let all runners unite together and remember the loss of a beautiful spirit. It's not a coincidence the hashtag reads either "Meg's Miles" or "Meg Smiles." She will be smiling on all of us forevermore.
