    Photos: Dogs of Instagram

    Dogs of Instagram – who doesn’t love following sweet fur pups? Well, since this past Saturday was National Puppy Day, I thought I’d share a few of my favourites.

It can be sad without a pup since I sometimes wonder…

    Photos: Blue Jays

    My oh my – we have 5 blue jays at our house! Blue Jays This past July we celebrated our sixth wedding anniversary and Bryce’s parents got us a bird feeder, not only is it beautiful, it’s made of cedar. Well, we finally got it up in late August when we purchased some standard bird feed. It was a mix of black, white and brown seeds. The little finches we see around love the black seeds, yet toss the white ones to the ground. Recently,…
