Thoughts, rants and ridiculous notions about great food, adorable critters, and my life as I see it. I consider myself a jack of all trades, master of none.

I’m a small town girl that enjoys the finer things in life. The love of GREAT coffee (although my Mr. would beg to differ), inspirational art, my family and fabulous food makes me sleep well at night. Living within a 30 min drive of the ocean is a must for me, I feel claustrophobic if not.

We sadly (Dec. 19, 2012) lost our 2 year old Bernese Mountain Dog, Newton, to Renal Failure. He was an amazing dog and my best friend – We are still coping with his loss in baby steps. Although I no longer have my furry friend with me, I still proudly consider myself a crazy dog/cat lady. I’ve opened up my heart  to walking some great dogs at the SPCA, and opened my house to  week long furry boarders and *soon* foster care.

The shenanigans I’ll be discussing/ranting will include many things, including; the love of my life (A pilot), my fur-kids (2 cats), foodie greatness, learning how to sail and general silliness of home renovations. My latest adventures are Cross Fit and dog walking – stay tuned for more on that.


– I talk to my animals while cooking

– I can sing the entire musical score from Les Miserables, albeit badly.

– I am terrible at home renovations, mostly the finishing part…

– My socks will never match

– I have a terrible habit of rambling – I’m working on it ok 🙂

– I apologize ahead of time if I remember your dogs’ name, but not yours.

– Procrastination is my own worst enemy

  1. I always talk to my dogs! Why, just last night I told Daisy that I thought she’d eaten enough dinner and to share with the other dogs because she was starting to look a little chunky. She stopped eating long enough to turn around and give me a long, dark stare. I immediately apologized and she went back to eating. 🙂

    • haha, rightly so! It would be oh so boring if they didn’t bring the spunk and personality they all have. They’re smarter then most people think – I’m positive your Daisy knew exactly what was being said 🙂

  2. So sorry to hear about the passing of your beautiful buddy. But looks like you have many adventures ahead. Let me know if you’re looking for tip on traveling that part of Europe!

    • Thank you for your kind words.

      I appreciate any advice/tips you’re willing to pass on, it’s our first time. I’m looking mostly for places to stay in Venice & Cinque Terre.

  3. Hello…woof!!!! So great to meet you and thank you so much for following us too!!!! We really appreciate it. I think you are a wonderful writer and am so sorry for your loss. 😦 Our dogs take a piece of us with them when they go. I miss all my angels who have went on! Please be gentle on yourself, we are all encouraging you!!!! Blessings and strength daily!!!!

  4. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my latest entry! I talk to Nova all the time and I’m positive we’ve had some great conversations, nor do I doubt she understands me (in fact I probably underestimate how much she knows…). I’m very sorry for your loss, he was a beautiful guy. It’s the hardest thing about owning a pet, but I can’t imagine my life without them. I look forward to your future posts!

    • Hi,

      Loved your last post! I’m positive she does understand you 🙂

      Thanks for your kind words. It’s always so hard to lose one, especially if it was more of a soul mate. Since they are only with us a short time, we must appreciate them while we can!

  5. So sorry to hear about your loss of Newton! We’re still struggling with losing our Ringo Bojangles … you likely look behind you to see if your companion’s at your heels also. But I do believe in the Rainbow Bridge, and we’ll all get there someday. The rest of us have our whiskers and fingers crossed for your remodeling project! Thanks for liking our blog too. Purrs!

    • Thank you. It’s a hard road to take, and I’m very sorry for your loss. I still have some very tough days. What makes me feel a bit better is thinking what Newton was all about – love and happiness. I know he wouldn’t want me to be sad about it.

      I believe in the rainbow bridge as well. Can you imagine any better greeters?

  6. This is such a beautiful blog..I cannot wait to come back and read some more. I also really appreciate your definition of ‘mother’ 🙂 I will always be a dogmum!

  7. You truly have an amazing and inspiring blog!
    We continue to find strength and comfort when reading your beautiful words on the loss of your gentle giant Newton, as we grieve the loss of our dear Mollie.
    It would be an honor if you would accept our nomination for an ABC Award.
    You truly deserve it.

    • Awww thank you! I love your blog as well. Such yummy treats! I’ve made a few of them a time or two and took them to the shelter for all to enjoy 🙂

      Thank you for your kind words. I’m so very sorry about your own loss. It’s never easy. I hope you continue to find strength and comfort – not just in what I’m writing about, but what you’ve already done. Which is that you’ve given your Mollie a great life.

  8. I talk to my Dog when driving. Sometimes, he is not in the car with me, but I’ll remember that when I finished saying what I had to.
    I will also most likely remember dog names and not their parents’ names. 🙂 Thank you for following my blog. I enjoyed your most recent post on Italy VERY much!
