A very special day in the Hallyu Back household for two reasons: 1) Maki’s birthday is today! She was born exactly one year ago today. 2) Steph’s mom passed away on this day in 2008. September has always been the most difficult month for her. It was a very weird day last Nov. when we went to the animal hospital to look at kittens. We knew we wanted a Russian Blue, and when we arrived we saw they only had one. It was Maki and she was born on the 16th. I saw it first, knew the significance, and then relayed the info to Steph. Steph was already holding Maki in her arms when I told her. There was no turning back after that. Maki became part of our family, special birthday and all.

Twas a very good day today ^^
