joy in the little moments…

I love being 51 years old. I know it sounds crazy, but I’m convinced I’m getting younger. At this point in my life, I really focus on experiencing true joy. I’m definitely not sweating the small stuff any more, and the beautiful little moments in life mean so much to me. This sounds so “new age”, but I can’t help it. I’m a believer in shifting my paradigm and finding joy everywhere I look 🙂

it’s a dog’s life…

What a great way to start off the 2015! I was interviewed for a wonderful blog called Coffee With A Canine, which profiles really interesting people who love coffee and their furry companions. I struggled to get decent photos of my dogs, because they’re lawless and camera shy (hmmm…come to think of it, so are the humans in my house). Pop by the interview and get all the juicy details about my exotic life.

We were all surprised by how frigid Crescent Beach was this afternoon. My teeth were chattering and my fingers were numb when I fumbled around with the camera (shocked anything was in focus). Considering the 6 feet of snow the folks in Buffalo are shovelling out from under, I can hardly complain…oh yes I can.

i know what you did last weekend…

I am soooo happy it’s springtime and the robins have come back out to sing! My toes are particularly tickled when I get to visit Canada’s jewel–the Okanagan–at this time of year. I lucked out marrying an Okanagan farm boy, ’cause I get to go visit the in-laws on their beautiful farm in Armstrong, at least a couple of times every year. And that’s exactly what we did last weekend.

Jane on her favourite farm toy!!

Happiest dog on the planet when she's at the farm--doggy DisneyWorld!!!!

Look what the Easter Bunny left on the wood pile!!!!

Our weiner roasts always involve some epic mooching!

There are always cool little things on farms, like this haunted bird mansion!

thank you furry friends…

At this time of year, I start to reflect about all the things that have happened over the past 12 months and all the things that I’m thankful for. I’m so grateful for my children and my family and friends. Where would we be without the people we love? I tend to forget the other important beings in my life–my dogs.

Four years ago, if you had asked my friends what I thought about dogs, they would chortled and exclaimed, “She is NOT a DOG person!”.

So here I am with not one, but two dogs that…yes…I even allow to cuddle on my bed with me!!!!! I’m a walking, talking example of an old dawg (eh hem…) who can learn new tricks!!!

I’m so glad I broke down and invited dogs into my family. They have been an amazing source of love, companionship, loyalty and hilarity! So here’s a big thank you to my furry little friends, who have thoroughly enriched our lives.
