Our Hearts are Full.

3 weeks ago we rescued this handsome one.

My kids have been asking forever for a dog and I finally did it.  I decided to rescue him from owners that did not want him at all.  His siblings have also been resuced by other families.

So here he is ........... Introducing River, my Kazakh mutt and did I mention he's a handsome one. 😉

 Of course, I don't know what environment he's coming from so sometimes he gets scared, thinks he's in danger and/or becomes aggressive.

But one thing is for sure he's brought much joy to my kids and my husband and I.
We're ready to love on him.

Welcome River.💗


Wordless Wednesday

If you ever have the opportunity to vist, do it.  
The love story is real ........... and you can feel it.💗


OMG - what happened to March ??

Cause it's April already??!! .......Whaaaaaaat??

I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend!  We were travelling, travelling back from Thailand.  I know what you're thinking.....again?!

Yes we went home again.  And as always we had a relaxing time and now it's back to the grind of life - real life.

I 'heart' Thailand.  This time we went to the other side of Phuket and we did things a little differently.  My husband and I even went to a cooking class.  It was fun and really super easy.  I get intimidated sometimes when it comes to cooking but this class seemed so easy.   And after the class I am convinced that 'anyone can cook'.


Well I'm looking forward to April and then May.  We have 11 weeks left of school for this academic year.  And my 8th grader is counting down for sure .....cause this is it for her, here.  She'll be off to boarding school ........sigh.  It's a little too much for my heart, but necessary.  It's a good thing she's actually looking forward to it.

Happy April friends.


28th of February

This day is always a hard one for me.

It's one of those 'would have been days'.

Happy Birthday to my Dad ..........I celebrate you today and will always remember 💗

Remembering you is easy, I do it every day. 
Missing you is the heartache that never goes away.


Monochrome Monday

Monday mornings aren't always the best for me.

I'm still tired from the weekend, the house is a mess and I need a strong cup of coffee to get me going.  Oh and I need to get out of the house to go get my 'sweat on'.

Do you go to the gym and when do you get a workout?  I'm a morning person.  I like to get it out of the way so it's not hanging over my head, the whole day.

lazy weekends....

Happy Monday!
