Oh. Hello there. Happy New Year and Happy the Holidays Are Over! I know most people really love them, but I’m not as in love with them as I used to be years ago. They’ve become complicated in many ways for me, so let’s just say these complications makes them... Continue reading

It's been very Halloween-y here this week. Baby Spot and I went for a walk late last Monday while the sun was settling and it was all twilight, leaving flying, and owls hooting. {{Seriously. The Great Horned Owls are busy out here.}} It was like an episode of The No... Continue reading

Long time, no House of Spot. I know, I know… It’s been a bit of a wrecking ball over here with no time to type. If I could sum up the last few months in a few pithy words it would be, “Just get this kid graduated.” This, of course,... Continue reading

Sorry for the radio silence over here at The House of Spot. I assure you though, it is a crazy whirlwind. If you think "end of the school year" activities are crazy, then just throw in a graduate. More to come in the following week! Continue reading

Ah, Easter. In the Pacific Northwest sometimes it’s lovely, most of the time it’s not. This year is was pretty darn nice for it being so early on the calendar. Sadly our original plans with friends were canceled due to a death in their family, so I pulled this rabbit... Continue reading
