Change Is Hard

…but change is certain.

Look what came in the mail!


Katie and I got a box in the mail today.  She was very interested.  I told her I didn’t think there would be anything from her boyfriend Reilly this time, but she was sure Reilly wouldn’t ship a box to us without something special in it for her.  After all…Reilly loves Katie!

What's in here Mama?

What’s in here Mama?

And Katie was (of course) right!  Reilly’s Mom shipped us two beautiful portraits of Katie…but Reilly slipped a little present into the box for Katie too.  She got some bully sticks!  She’s never had any before and she wants to know if she can have one now now now now now now?  How about now Mama?  I told her she had to wait until I saw what else was in the box.  Becuase I had an idea that something very beautiful was in there.

And I was (of course) right!  Look at what Reilly’s talented Mom did for us! (Click on the pictures to see more detail.)

Don't they look just like me?

Don’t they look just like me?

She does these portraits and donates the proceeds to animal related charities!  Isn’t her work gorgeous?  You can go check more of it out at her online store.  She’s shown a couple of other portraits there that she’s done lately.

Katie thinks they are both very very wonderful.

I can look at these all day Mama!

I could look at these all day!

We think they’re pretty wonderful too!  Go check out the blog.  She’ll do your pet proud.  I can’t promise that Reilly will fall in love with your dog…I think he’s a one girlfriend kind of guy….but you’ll fall in love with the art!

Thank you Bree!

Sending kisses to Reilly!

I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.
