Today is Greg and Elvira’s last day in Connecticut, so we went to mount tom which is the very definition of summer. After lunch we hiked up to the tower, a first for both Avery and Tallulah, then went for a swim. Nothing makes me happier in the summer than the tower at Mount Tom with it’s amazing view. #100happydays #day19 #toribshappydays  (at Mount Tom State Park)

Enjoying the last week of summer vacation at Mount Tom. So much to be happy about new apartment, offered a job, and Tallulah has a wiggly tooth! Seems like everything seems to work out in the end. Gotta trust that I’m in the right place with the right people in my life. I’ll miss my mom, but I know we’ll have Sunday dinners and other adventures. #100happydays #toribshappydays #day18

After driving all over the state of Connecticut and feeling melancholy about my sister flying home tonight, the radio plays back to back Queen. Nothing can cheer me up like Queen. #100happydays #day12 #toribshappydays

My best cuddle bug, Archimedes. He was the first cat I ever adopted  as an adult and he makes me so happy when I’m feeling low. Archimedes only ever cuddles with me and will do my best not to disturb his slumber when he’s in my lap. #100happydays #toribshappydays #day11

Happy 8th Birthday to my sweetie pie Avery. Avery was born only 4 lbs 4 oz but her personality and sass could fill a stadium. My little girl was too tired to stay up and wait for daddy to come home from work so we could have cake. I still needed my birthday cake picture though. Cake for breakfast I guess. #100happydays #day8 #toribshappydays
