Puppy Prayers

Puppy Prayers

The MN ‘summer’ has been anything but. One cannot help but feel more than a little bummed out at the lack of weather related reprieve, and it looks like Little Man is praying just as hard as I am for a break in the never-ending rain and gloom.

He’s so dang cute, maybe the Man upstairs will listen!


That ‘Onion’ Moment!

That 'Onion' Moment!

I recently turned 51. (wow, where do the years fly off to?)

One of our family traditions is to have the meal of your choice for your birthday dinner.
My birthday request was steamed mussels with crab legs and a beet salad. (you may be thinking that is an odd combination but hey, its my birthday, it’s what floats MY boat!)

So hubby and oldest got to work prepping and cooking. (Isn’t hubby snazzy in his chefs coat? The family got them years ago for christmas. The girls outgrew theirs, but hubby and I use ours all the time)

My daughter was in charge of onion cutting detail. I had to capture the moment and share, because anyone who has cooked has had that: ‘Onion Moment’!


“Stay with Me”, Cover by Sophia & Tyler

Now that my daughter is back from her study abroad she is back in front of the microphone, much to the delight of her friends and ours also! Here is the sweet voice of (in our biased opinion) the talented Sophia and her new accompanist Tyler performing the cover of Sam Smiths ‘Stay with Me’.

I hope you enjoy!
