Special Delivery

We got a puppy!!! We have never had a dog so this is BIG news at our house. The photo above is what we fell in love with on the Labs4rescue website. It is an amazing organization that is actually run out of our small town here in CT but caters to states all over. Our sweet little 11 week old girl arrived yesterday from Texas. I feel like I have a new baby (and slept like I had one too). Seriously, the last 24 hours have gone so much better than I expected. My boys are so excited for our new addition. We decided to call her Tali because our favorite ski trail at Magic Mountain is Talisman but because she is a girl, it's just Tali.

If you are looking for a lab of any kind, I highly recommend Labs4resuce.
It was a wonderful experience ... everyone involved cares so much about the dogs. The transport company, Rescue Road Trips, was great to deal with as well. It was a smooth process and we are thrilled that she has arrived!


Here she is straight out of the transport crate into our care.

She jumped on her new bed the minute she walked in the house. How did she know??


Welcome to your new home Tali!!

"Romantic Re-do"

Spring is the perfect time to start thinking about a romantic re-do for your home. The world outside is changing color and bursting with new life. Let a new season begin in your d├ęcor as well. Giving my home a romantic re-do by changing just a few elements is something I look forward to every spring.
