Happy Birthday, Nozomi!

Today Nozomi turns 7, a wonderful number that many people consider lucky. When I was seven, I was anything but. Hopefully this coming year will be better for her than it was me.

Nozomi Up Close

Over the last few months Nozomi has felt a little left out with the arrival of Leonard James, so today I'll make it up to her a bit with a nice trip to the park and some extra time together. She's been incredibly patient the last few months. Much more than I had expected.

She really is one of the nicest souls I've had the opportunity to share time with. Hopefully she'll enjoy another seven years on the Earth, sniffing every blade of grass and piece of gravel along the way.
