i lied about something.

that final american post wasn’t really the final american post – this is.

but the story starts in italy, a few summers ago.

i was in bridisi, italy, alone.  i was lying in bed, about to ferry to greece that afternoon, when i got a text message from my then-roommate, kaitlyn.  she asked what i would think about getting a puppy.  after some slight initial hesitation, she convinced me.  i came home a couple of weeks later to meet her miniature schnauzer, affectionately known as stella-girl.  and i was so, so  obsessed – instantly.  she was just a little baby puppy then.  she slept with us every night.  and even though she liked to cuddle kaitlyn more than she liked to cuddle me, we still found a way to all live happily ever after.

{until kaitlyn moved back to arkansas and i moved to europe and our happily-ever-after got cut a little tiny bit short.}

since re-locating to europe, there are a lot of people i miss at home and kaitlyn is at the top of that list.  but i’d be lying if i said i missed kaitlyn any more than i miss stella (well, maybe i miss kaitlyn a teensy bit more).

but anyway, during my month in america, i got to re-unite with both of them!  and spend time with kaitlyn’s new husband and his/their little puppy edie.  and i loved it!  and i think stella-girl loved it, too.

I just want you to know that the mental image I got from that first paragraph was you and Kaitlyn sharing a bed charlie and the chocolate factory grandparents style, and a tiny dog sandwiched helplessly in between.
