A New Friend

I am back at work. It was really really hard to go back to work today. I usually have no problems going to work on a daily basis. I have grown to actually like my job. I mean it's by no means my dream job, but it's not stressful, I have great co-workers and the pay is pretty decent. And the best part is the breaks, including the whole month of July off!!!! So I can hardly complain.
But it was hard coming back today. I had such a great break! I saw so many friends old, new, newer... I kept thinking, how did I get so blessed?
I spent a big chunk of time in Michigan visiting my dearest friend Rachel. I wish it didn't go by so fast!
Thursday, I made lunch for a current co-worker and then had Thai food with a former coworker Michelle.
There was lattes with Megan and Nori and then happy hour with Heather of the EO.
And a great night at Ellen's and Sarah's house with some great people like Steve & Jeanelle and Kelly and Don.
Saturday was a fun day with Shannon my sister from another mister... or as I like to call her my Phantom Leg.
And that brings me to Sunday. A very nice day spent at my parent's house out in the country. One baby horse was born (and about 20 more on the way!). Spring is in the air! Farm babies!
And I brought home a new little friend.
His name is Noir. (French for black)
He is a lot bigger than when this picture was taken last September.
As the White Stripes sing, I can tell that we are gonna be friends.

It's hard going back to work after a vacation.

And the whole month of July off?!?!? I sort of hate you.

Aaaw he's adorable!! And wait, you guys grew up on a farm? That is beyond awesome. You should def check out Pioneer Woman's website: http://thepioneerwoman.com/. She lives on a ranch with her cowboy husband and is surrounded by horses and cows all day. Not a bad existence in my opinion.

He's so stinking cute! Look at those eyes.

I'm so glad I got to see you. It always makes me feel all happy to see that face of yours (and talk to you too. yes, I love that part too.)

Mine was named Chat Noir. Not very creative, but it was appropriate. Cute kit.
