Living with a children's author isn't as easy as it looks!

“Hope smiles from the threshold of the year to come, whispering, “It will be happier.”

~Alfred Lord Tennyson~

Pretty low bar after 2020, but we’ll take it. Everybody loves being happier. 

We are happy, but being happier is even better. Can’t have too many blessings! Am I right?

Writing and selling and sharing the elusive Book #2 will make Mom happier. 

So will good health, good friends, good luck, and plenty of creative ideas. Fingers crossed that some of them go somewhere.

More treats will make me happier.

So will more walks,

You call this a walk?

more kisses,

more toys,

These seem like fun….

and plenty of naps.

Paws crossed that some of them are in the blazing hot street.

Here’s to a dream-come-true holiday season and a new year filled with happiness, health, friends, luck, creativity, treats, walks, kisses, toys, and naps.

  6. I hope both of y’all’s wishes and dreams come true. Happy holiday Jennifer, Love Tracy. ❤️🎄 🎅🏼 🐶 🧑🏻👩🏼‍🦳 📚 🦴 🍪 🎁 🍀 🐾 (Or was it the other way around) 🤷🏼‍♀️

    • Thanks, G. You did get it right. Back to the days when all you and Mom wanted was to have normal names like normal kids. Lucky you both learned how much better it is to stand out than to blend in.

      Love and licks,

  7. Oh dear Cupcake…can I just say you’re just darn adorable? Best wishes to you and your mum for a very happy 2021 and a new book deal. 🤞🏼 Happy Howlidays!

  8. Cupcake you are so squeezably gorgeous. Promise no claws when I squeeze. Hope your mom gets a super special book deal in the new year and we all have a happier and healthier year. Go away 2020 and welcome 2021.


  9. Those are wonderful howliday wishes. And we saw you got blessed by your priest, too. We think that super soft looking blankie you were laying on is a zillion times better than a street nap, C! XOX and wishes for great treats and a happy 2021. Lucy and Xena and Riley, too.

  10. Sending you and your Mom wishes for a Happy New Year filled with more kisses, more toys, and more fun together. I am a fan of afternoon naps. Love the first picture… love them all. I think your Mom has learned to squeeze all the happiness out of life and enjoy every bit of it with you and share it with us. You two make me HAPPY!

    • Thanks, Pix. We have all earned extra happiness in the months to come. Mom and I do try to squeeze as much happiness as we can out of each day. Little things matter. Like those little afternoon naps…. Mom is not a napper, so I nap extra for her.

      Love and licks,
