So what have I been up to?
Well, mainly, managing a zoo. Ruby is a big puppy now. And she has officially entered hunting season. She's doing pretty good lately, but there have been many tears in the puppy training process.
this photo cracks me up!! this is the face she makes when you tell her to stay.
It's definitely Fall here in Minnesota - cooler temps, open windows, and extra kitty snugs. I've spent time taking care of house projects and some furniture projects but the fall is always really busy.
My friend Katy and her hubby bought their first home - like 2 miles from us!! And they had their first annual backyard beer olympics a few weeks after they moved in. Had scoring been consistent, the Ortmans (or 'Ortmanistan') would have taken a trophy. Just saying.
Our Summer was pretty fantastic - our FIRST year in the last several without one single wedding. We finally had our weekends back and it was glorious. I'll do a summer recap post because it was just so much fun :)
I'm hoping to get back in to this space because I miss it - more to come, friends!
