If there are any LOST fans reading, you’ll recognize this blog title as the logo on Hurley’s shirt from Wednesday’s season premiere. Wasn’t it an incredible episode?!? And how appropriate that I got to take a few shots of a Shih Tzu last weekend.

Meet Romeo. He’s getting up there in years, but still maintains his spunky personality. He’d go tearing through the house and wipe out when his feet slid out from under him on the hardwood floor. Ha. As we were standing in the hallway, we heard some whining and barking, though Romeo was no where in sight. After a quick search, Emma found him… in the master bathroom SHOWER! He had wandered in there and when the shower curtain closed behind him he couldn’t find his way out… Poor old guy! I couldn’t help but laugh. Though it was not quite as funny when we realized that his paws were soaked from the shower and he was leaving little wet paw prints all over the hardwood floors. You can’t really hold it against a face this cute though…

  • Emil - Awwww poor old Romeo! =(

  • Melissa - What a face!

  • Tracy - OH!!!! I love love LOVE his little head of fur! It’s fantastically crazy! I want to see more!!! : )

  • leesia - lol, what a cutie!! a perfect post & title for the day after lost. :p

I took this as I was driving home this weekend, approaching the tollbooth as I left New Jersey. Disclaimer: I do not condone taking photos while driving. Something about this type of image mesmerizes me. Maybe it’s that I notice light more since I started learning about photography. Maybe since it’s completely out of focus, the whole scene is left to your imagination. Maybe I’ve just held onto that childhood gene that requires you to be completely captivated by anything bright and shiny… ย 


  • Rachel - I love this! I am also captivated by anything shiny/twinkly. I think it’s cool because like you said, your imagination has to fill in the blanks. I’m wondering what is on those billboards.

  • Emilee - Wow! I really really love this. I love that it’s not in focus and the bright lights. One of my favorite photos that came with my computer is an out of focus shot of a big city in black & white. Love it and this! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • sarah - this is exactly what i see when i take my glasses off. sometimes i take them off just to look at lights at night because it’s so pretty ๐Ÿ™‚

The R family’s session was fun… we made the most of a chilly afternoon by hanging out at home and then venturing out to Ott’s, a local greenhouse. Below you’ll find a few more photos that I love… and if you want to see the slideshow of all photos, click HERE! ย 

I hope you love your images!ย 

Stitches are spreading like wildfire in the Ziegler household. I joined Chloe today, as I had to have two moles cut out that came back as atypical when biopsied. One of said moles was on my face. I can assure you that numbing needles in the face are not fun. Let this be a lesson to you, to wear your sunscreen. Don’t make me post a photo of my woundage as a warning. It’s not pretty. It is also not entertaining when your husband can legitimately call you Scarface. And he does. Because compassion is just not one of his strong suits. Seriously though, the sun doesn’t mess around… nor does it’s long-lost devil cousin the tanning booth… so be safe in your sun practices. A pretty tan is just not worth Frankenstein-like stitches and the scars they leave behind.

On to brighter things, Chloe is recovering nicely. Sleeping less. Walking on her leg a little more. Things are looking good… ย  ย 

And Lucy, during a valiant attempt to escape the office. She loves to be where the action is so she freaks out when she’s in there alone…

  • melissa - Oh my how much more can you guys take around there with the medical stuff? My thoughts are with you.
    I LOVE the photo of Lucy at the gate! Priceless!

  • Dana - Your wear sunscreen comment made me think of the poem. Hope every ones recovery time is fast! Love the pics – so fuzzy and cute!

  • Emilee - I can’t stop laughing this picture of Lucy. She is SO cute! Happy to hear that Chloe’s recovery is going well!

  • Christy - I’m sorry to hear that you had to join Chloe with having stitches. Stay out of the sun & cover up! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Chloe looks as cute as ever and I’m glad she’s doing well!
    Lucy is adorable!

  • Jamie - Oh my goodness! Dogs AND humans all stitched up! No fun! Hope you guys all get better soon. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • leesia - aww, you poor dears! hope everything heals very, very quickly, that can’t be fun. ๐Ÿ™ can’t believe you’re working admist it all! i’d be wailing on the couch complaining to anyone who would listen. :p

Look who I got to meet today… the sweetest little six week old, Amaya. Bet you can’t resist falling in love with this face…ย
