My definition of a Family

It’s no secret that my dogs are a very important part of my life.  Even if I could have children I feel that my relationship with animals would still be a special one.  I understand that not all people are animal lovers and there are those who flat-out don’t like dogs in general, just like […]

Dog Days of Summer

I am feeling more like myself today.  It was a bad week overall, and that’s just going to happen from time to time. But the weekend is here, and Monday is Labor Day.  Which means we’re into the Dog Days of Summer.  The dogs think that means something totally different here at our house:   […]

My goldens keep me laughing. Gratitude Video

On this Memorial Day it is raining outside.  Windy and rainy.  I woke up to our outdoor umbrella sitting on its side in the front yard.  At first I had to comprehend what exactly it was that I was looking at.  Then I realized the wind must have pulled it straight out of the hole […]

Thankful for a former rescue dog.

As part of my weekly series of Thankfulness/Gratitude photos, this week I’m thankful for my golden retriever, Emmie.   Tomorrow will be the second anniversary of the day we brought her home.  She has been transformed into the most loving, gentle, funny dog – she’s come a long way since the day she was rescued at […]

What a Week

It’s been quite the busy week around here.  The time change, fortunately, doesn’t affect me in the least when we Spring Forward.  I actually get up earlier and accomplish so much more during the day.  During the Fall Back though….ugh.  Let’s just say, I don’t handle it well.  I cannot wait for Spring.  I’ve been […]

Giveaway Galore

The first two months of the year is always somewhat bittersweet for me.  Tax forms start coming in and my goodness, the bills!!  Car insurance is due; life insurance premium is due.  Car plates are due.  I remember the first time I knew I was a grownup: it was the year I had to use […]

Getting my Groove Back

A few days before my surgery I went to the front desk at my yoga studio and requested that my monthly subscription be suspended until July 14th.  ‘Oh, for sure I’ll be ready to come back by then!’ I said with confidence. But when the 14th came, not only was I still unable to do […]

Blog Block

I’ve got nothin’. It seems as though not one interesting post can be squeezed through this space between my ears today. I have notes tacked to my journal in case I ever found myself in this mental void but, who knew I’d actually draw a complete blank for over three days?   Things to blog […]

Asparagus Served Cold. Dog Reads Blog. What Kind of Monday is This?

Good Monday, everyone – and thank you all for sending such kindness and love over the Internet this past Friday regarding my post on Emmie.  My husband, who read it last night looked up from his computer and said, ‘You really have some wonderful people out there reading your blog’.   I just smiled and nodded […]

One Year Anniversary of a Former Rescue Dog

If we weight loss/maintenance/healthy living bloggers aren’t writing about exercise or proper eating habits, we can be found writing about our desire to create a happier, healthier lifestyle for ourselves. If you were to ask the average person what would make them happy, I think you’d pretty much get the same answer: having a fulfilling […]
