We are traveling this week… And have called a beautiful place home for 8 days!

What gifts this trip has given us!!

It has given us some good ideas for our house (to welcome others and make their stay better) but most importantly it has given us the gift of time. We have been together — just us, the kids and fun.

Getting this time together has been priceless… We hope people receive this gift when they stay at our place!



I was feeling kind of FLAT lately … thinking of what to write about and what to use as inspirations to others.

And then I read this little piece about the love we have for our animals and how a fellow owner helps those bring their “babies” to her home and I knew it was just what I needed!

We certainly welcome pets at the house — but we could do better.

We have lots of stuff for children – down to pack-n-plays and toys – but for the doggies? It was just the inspiration I needed.  

And now it makes me think I kind of want to check out Donna’s place to see how awesome she treats the humans!
