This past Friday we moved into our new apartment. The girls and I love the new space. It truly feels like a fresh start and a warm and wonderful home. On that same day we also welcomed a new addition to our family. 

It wasn’t supposed to happen this fast… We had just put our beloved Dopey down not too long ago. But, as I have learned time and again, life doesn’t always work on  a specified timeline or go exactly as planned. 

A kind hearted and amazing soul named Judy who works with the group NYC Second Chance Rescue was fostering Memphis. I decided to go and meet him. From the moment I laid eyes on him, I knew he was the perfect dog for our family. Memphis is a total love bug who loves everyone, is curious, happy to meet other animals and loves cuddles and kisses. He is approximately 9 months and weighs 40 pounds. Judy is convinced Dopey sent him to us, I think she might be right. Hard to say if we rescued him, or if he rescued us đź’ś

I feel like brighter days are ahead. Hard to  have a bad day when a happy, wiggle butt greets you at the door!

A BIG thank you to Judy and NYC Second Chance. We are grateful for all you do. 

Happy Wednesday my friends, sending puppy kisses your way!!

The new year hasn’t exactly started off with the positive bang that I was hoping for but I do believe things are looking up. On that note the girls and I are having an incredible time in California. 

California truly is one of my favorite places. I am not sure if it is because it is my place of birth but every time I return, I feel a sense of peace. We are staying in Carlsbad, just north of San Diego and it is beautiful. Being able to wake up to a view of the ocean every morning is good for my soul. I love sharing my love of Cali with the girls. 

This morning the little one and I went on a sunrise adventure for donuts. We have driven by the Leucadia Donut Shoppe on the pacific coast highway numerous times on our travels. The first time there was a huge line and the second time we drove by there was a sign on the door- the donuts were sold out by 10:30am! We were intrigued. 

My body still wakes up like we are on the east coast so this morning Re and I hopped in the car and headed off to get donuts. At that time of the morning we were able to see the sunrise, meet other crazy people getting donuts at 6 in the morning, chat with the super nice guy at the donut shoppe and stop to say good morning to the ocean. Perfection. 

And the donuts? Unbelievable. Amazingly good. Might be worth the sunrise drive every morning!!! 

Enjoy the pics. Hope you are all enjoying fun and fabulous February adventures đź’ś

I sit here writing this with my cup of tea, the dog at my feet, sitting in a chair that is overlooking the lake. The sun is fighting to come out from behind the clouds, the wind is gently blowing and the only sound I can hear are the waves lapping on the shore. Perfection.

I love cottage life. I have always loved it. Some of my fondest childhood memories are spending time at my Aunt and Uncle’s cottage on Wood Lake in Muskoka. There is something about the fresh air, trees, lake and pace that are just good for the soul.

Ron, Dopey dog and I are having a much needed relaxing time, doing a whole lot of nothing. Reading, swimming, chasing the ball (Dopey), kayaking, eating, drinking, playing cards, grilling (Ron), chatting (me) and checking out the local town. It is exactly what we needed. Especially Ron who has had a ridiculous work schedule lately.

We are about 1/2 an hour from the girls camp in New Hampshire and I am super excited to pick them up on Saturday but right now, I am going to pour another cup of tea and grab my book. Summer. Life is good.

Happy Wednesday everyone, hope you are finding time to enjoy a bit of peace and quiet in your happy place!
