Hi guys!!! โ˜บ My name is Mrs. Norris although I've been going by Norris or Nora until I grow into the Mrs part. My mommy rescued me from the storm drain that I was stuck in for over 48 hours. They say I'm a trooper! So far I'm doing great, had my first vet visit and got my fleas and worms taken care of. There, the doctor found out I had a huge cut around my lower abdomen that is mostly healed. She thinks someone tied me up with wire or string against my will which makes my new family angry and sad that someone could be so cruel ๐Ÿ˜• Despite my battles I am a fighter and a lover! My favorite things are food, my shadow, biting hands that I mistake for toys, sneak attacks, and meowing when I'm ignored. I am full of piss and vinegar as they say but have so much love to give. I'm hoping my mommy can convince her family to keep me because I love them so much. I'm sure you'll be seeing more of me!! Xoxo, Norris

Get ready for a rant/life lesson if you care to read on ๐Ÿ˜… so lately things haven't been great in Kiera Land. Long story short I've been involved in a 3 year legal battle that I thought was finally ending but alas things are never that easy. It's something that has given me anxiety and a whole mix of emotions this whole time and I was really hoping to close that chapter of my life. Then last week I got let go at my job which has caused issues of its own that I've had to deal with. So basically, I was in a constant state of 'why me' and dwelling on all these things that I can't control. -
Now in the past I guarantee I would've stayed in that cycle and let it eat me alive. But I've been fortunate enough to stumble across some really important people in my life. While attending orientation for school we had this exercise where you stated what you were most aware of (i.e. your race, gender, age, class, etc) and most people's answers were obvious. One of the guys I knew that was a leader was standing under the category listed as "disability/ability" and I thought it was strange. While I hadn't known him long I couldn't think of any disabilities he had. He offered to explain his decision and this is what he said. "I said I am most aware of my ability, not disability. I wake up every morning and just that act, breathing and standing, is something that I am ABLE to do. I am fortunate to be able to drive to school, get an education, walk even. Many people like myself hardly recognize the things we are able to do and merely focus on what we say we cannot do. I think we all need to make a better effort to focus on how good we have it and what abilities we take for granted." Lemme tell ya, I was snapping my fingers like the sorority girl I am ๐Ÿ™‹๐ŸผBut seriously believe me when I say we all left that room a lot more humble. -
The things mentioned above that are happening in my life, I can't control. But I have the ability to not let the negatives in my life take over. Lately I've found that going to the gym is an ability I took for granted in the past. I've never been overweight but I complained about having to get out of bed much less go for a run ๐Ÿ™ƒcont.๐Ÿ‘‡

This woman. My mom, my confidante, my friend, the one who gave me her name. I never thought I would say this, but I can't wait to be like my mom when I'm older. I find more and more similarities between us and I'm so excited for what else we discover in common. She's a "cool" mom โœŒ๐Ÿผthanks to her we got to go to Cabo together and spent 3 days just lounging poolside for the first time in uhhh forevaaa! She planned dinners on the beach, cocktail tastings, and ocean facing rooms which made it so surreal. Can't wait to go back and make more memories โค

I'll ๐Ÿ humble but I won't sit down (mainly because I can't due to the burn covering my entire body)

So this weekend I went camping with 8 strangers. It was messy, loud, mosquito ridden and one of the best trips I've been on. Being in the forest with no cell service and only the essentials really makes you bond with those around you. We shared a ton of laughs and made memories that will stick with me forever. We were able to see the Palomar Observatory and gawk at the telescope's size and capabilities (scope the cover for our Christian rock band on the steps outside). All in all I couldn't have asked for a better group of people to be smelly and itchy with โค now for camping with the boyfs family!

Today is a special day for our family because it marks 6 years that my mom has been cancer free. She was diagnosed when I was in high school and it came as such an unexpected shock. You never think that cancer is something you'll have to learn all about through a first hand experience. That being said, my mom handled her diagnosis with the most courage I have ever seen. She refused to back down and accept her fate but rather took her diagnosis into her own hands. She didn't let her doctors choose what path was right for her out of fear.
For anyone that knows someone going through cancer or is going through it themselves please know you aren't alone. I can't say it will get easier because does it really? Even being in remission for 6 years there is always that little bit of doubt in the back of your mind; will it come back? But through the ups and downs the one thing that we are sure of is that we can handle it together. My mom is the bravest woman I know and I have no doubt in my mind that she can beat any obstacle that comes to her. Happy 6 years mama โค

beach please

The aftermath of this weekend hit me like a wrecking ball ๐Ÿ’ฃ road tripping to SLO then San Fran then back to SLO and making it in time for the 4th equaled a ton of driving but it was all worth it for the food, laughs, and most of all the company. So grateful to have friends that make 3+ hour drives (times 10) totally worth it โค

Still riding out the sugar high from my 4 trips to Cafรฉ Du Monde for these beignets ๐Ÿ˜ you can say it was the best 21st celebration ever all thanks to my wonderful parents โค

You know when you get your hurr did and can't stop running your hands through it? โ˜๐Ÿผ that's me all thx to Melissa ๐Ÿ’—

Butt what we would do without the Earth ๐ŸŒŽ (keep swiping to get the pun)

"Hey girl you come here often?" โ€ข
Missing my other half and all our fun adventures involving poles ๐Ÿ˜œ jk this might be the only one
