    Photos: Daphne Turns Two

    Daphne turns two – that’s right, our sweep pup Daphne is now more than 2 years old – so wild! She spent her first night at home with us in December 2019 and we have loved her ever since. Daph-Daph is full of sass, is particular about treats, and loves to run. She’s a nap-a-holic and gets two walks a day. Oh, and during these hot summer days she’s likes to hide indoors by the ac vents. Ah, just a little spoiled, yes. Okay –…

    Recipe: Potato Dog Treats

    Potato dog treats – why? Because it’s Lily’s birthday, that’s why! Well, her birthday was on Monday and we celebrated in the morning with homemade potato dog treats. When Bella turned 11 she got sweet potato dog treats, so it’s only fitting that Lily, turning 7 and all, gets chips, too. Lily loves, like loves salt and vinegar chips. The problem? She’s older and we’re afraid to give her too many processed items because we just love her so much. As such, I made her…

    Project: Turing 30

    Turning 30 – that’s right, my husband turns 30 today! We are going to celebrate in style. This is the third time we will spend his birthday on the road, and the second time our destination is my family in Ontario. This guy is awesome. He’s not high maintenance in that he doesn’t need a special day all about him – he wants to just spend it with me. His kindness, however, shouldn’t go without a little celebration and special attention, right? So…what I’ve come…
