It’s almost the 4th of July, is there really anything more puppy-patriotic than a rescue Labrador Retriever? Nope. Not to us. Some people write out their children’s birth stories, well this is our dog adoption story. And it’s a long one. I may not be a consistent blogger, but I try really hard to be… Read More Porter the Puppy
It’s Friday before a long Memorial Day weekend and in a few hours we are taking the dogs and heading North on the Pacific Northwest coast, almost to Canada basically. We always get an itch to travel on this weekend and get out of Seattle. It’s a great bookend to all the hours worked in… Read More Long Weekend Getaways in the PNW

If someone would have told me last January 12th that the next day I would go on a date with my soul mate and never look back, I would have been so excited. (Warning, this is a sappy, sappy post.) I was already excited to… Read More The Journey of a Year
