Sneak Peek

Here is a teaser for you. The below cookies will be making a comeback this year and I have made my final selection of new cookies. It’s time to start gathering supplies and pulling out my stand mixer. I haven’t used it since last Christmas. All of the recipes are Pinterest finds, so if you…

Beautiful Things

Everything seems to have a day now. You always see today is National this day or National that day. If you Google “What holiday is today” something always pops up. Aside from the traditional holidays, you can always find something more obscure, unique. I recently discovered that there is a ‘beautiful’ day. Who knew? Beautiful…

Canine Crawl

I had so much fun out with Scruffy this past weekend supporting a great cause at the 19th annual canine crawl for the Humane Society of Eastern Carolina. I can’t believe I have never participated before, even when we had the pugs. Fact is, Scruffy is much more suited to things like this. We have…
