- Recent Purchases/Rediscoveries: ILIA Lip Wrap Lip Mask, Biossance Lip Balm, Tom Ford Costa Azzurra, YSL Rouge Pur Coutures (two shades for the New Year), Charlotte Tilbury Lipsticks (new ones for the New Year as well)
- Weekend plans: Continue to just take each day as it comes, letting myself take time off or get distracted by work or whatever it may be. Mellan was just so integrated into every aspect of my daily life with a memory in every inch of our home.
- Do you like reading physical books or digital books or listening to audiobooks best?: I totally zone out when listening to an audiobook, but I prefer the ease of digital reading – just easier to hold and turn pages, less light needed (since the screen is lit, as I use my iPad).

This week's mellan photo/video...
Share your pet photos to the Temptalia Pets flickr group!
So many readers mentioned how Mellan’s Friday photo has been something they’ve enjoyed, looked forward to, or has given them something to smile over at the end of the week that I’d like to continue on with that tradition for the time being. I thought I would share some of my favorite photos and some stories about him or the moment we captured.
This was Mellan’s first time at the beach! He was 15 weeks old when we drove to Carmel, CA so he could experience the ocean. He was quite scared of the waves as they came in, though he delighted in trying to drink ocean water (sigh!). My husband spent most of the time encouraging him into the ocean–I was the photographer, duh–and he told me to “hold his wallet and don’t drop it into the ocean,” and about five minutes later, I managed to drop it into the water (recovered but totally wet).
Fun fact: I kept a weight chart for him until six weeks old. He was 33 pounds at 15 weeks, which was about half his adult weight (he was around 68-70 pounds most of his adult life).
