What’s Daisy doing here?

So things seam a little different when you wake up from a deep sleep in the middle of the night. It’s like a whole different level of reality. Anyway, the other night I woke up and felt something hairy down by my foot. I remember thinking to myself, ‘That’s weird Jeremia never brings Daisy to […]

Party Entertainment

Pug Pushes Stroller

I love pugs! If only I could teach Daisy to do this… I’m currently trying to teach her to mock “I love you” with no avail. Anyway, this is so cute I could not resist!

Destination Wedding

My husband I chose to do a destination wedding in Cozumel, Mexico. It was inexpensive and wonderfully exciting. What is more beautiful than getting married on the beach in front of your most intimate friends and family?  These days everyone gets so wrapped up in having the biggest, most beautiful wedding. They ultimately forget the […]

Make Your Own Art

There are some very easy things that you can make, all you need is a little creativity (even if it is borrowed creativity). Pictures with geometric shapes are very popular right now, and honestly not that hard to make. For example, buy a piece of plywood at Lowe’s and some regular art paint and the […]
