Epic Post is Epic!

Hmmm...not sure how to catch up on two and a half years in one post, but here goes!

We moved back to Katherine <3

 (if I could marry a town, it'd be my true love).

Palm trees and thunderstorms - how I missed you!

There was an addition to the family... Cherry. She's an Abyssinian; she's annoying, but hilarious and 
loving and still kind of finding her place within the family.
