I will be absent from this space for a little while. 

Earlier today we discovered that our Hubbell has cancer. Doesn't matter the type. What does matter is that our time with him is extremely limited.  Extremely. I am a complete, disastrous mess, as you might imagine. Any of you that know me know that this will be a terribly hard time for me. For all of us.  Any of my attempts at strength and clarity have been downright hilarious and quite ridiculous in their failures. It's hard to imagine an Audrey without a Hubbell.  Hard. I really don't know how to get through this, I don't know what to do with this pain inside of my heart. I took these photos on Monday, before we knew that something was wrong. Oh am I grateful to have these now!  Please think of us, mostly of Hubbell. I want for every last moment of his life to be as sweet as humanly possible.  And I don't want to miss one second of whatever we have left with him......not even five minutes to blog.  I'm sure you understand.

I hope to be back. Once I can get my heart in order.  Once I feel I have something worth sharing besides total and complete heartbreak.  Once I can make sense of all this. There will be lots of nature when I do come back ~ it's the one thing that gets me through. As you know.  



  1. Love to you. I am so sorry.

  2. Oh Audrey, I am so sorry. What a good, good dog he seems to be, I can just tell by your photos of him. Please know that I am thinking of you and your family.

    Happy Mother's Day to you, my dear. Have fun with your sweet girls. xx

  3. Hi Audrey!
    I read your post, and it is heartbreaking. I am so sorry to hear that you and your family are going through this. It is so difficult to lose our pets because they are part of our families.

    Loved your poppy pictures in your previous post. Congrats on the new camera. Of course, when you are ready, I'll be thrilled to see you blogging again. Meanwhile, I understand.

    Sending you love and positive thoughts.
    Have a happy Mother's Day with your husband and girls.

  4. Hi Audrey!!! you know I love Hubbell too and I'm sorry I can't cuddle him but I'm sure Sophie will do it for me. He is a very Special dog, a good Soul!!!
    Have a nice day and love you
