Crying child, barking dog and a tired mommy

The irony in this post is so darn funny, as I’m sitting here listening to our youngest cry, our dog out front barking at people walking by, I look into our dining room at the things still sitting on the table to be finished sorting and made comment to my hubby when I tagged himContinue reading “Crying child, barking dog and a tired mommy”

Simple things. Cherish those you love. Life is too short!

Today marks the day of the anniversary of a loved one. Very much with a reminder to appreciate all the simple things in life. Life gets busy, days go by. We are taking this reminder, the memories of someone we love as a step forward. Unlike most loved ones we have lost, this loss wasContinue reading “Simple things. Cherish those you love.

Hubby nicknamed our pup (Becker) Chewy… I’m sure it’s self explanatory, he chews a lot, not as much as other labs thank goodness! He looooves stuffed animals, and blankets -chewing them and eating them… And he wonders why he is sick today! Stop eating blankets. He’s lucky he has his mama and dad to snuggle between on the couch lol literally he’s alternated his head on daddy’s lap and as soon as I began telling Jaz about how he was sick today, he instantly became the mommy sick! LOL ah I love him he’s been the perfect addition to the family.

When I hear this I think of you

When I hear this I think of you

The other evening while sitting outside with the kids by their playset (see previous pic) I beard this faint jingle, a jingle that will always be remembered of our dog Elwood, for days after he had passed I heard this jingle, always of 2 tags on his collar. When hubby, my dad and brother built the playset shortly after Elwood got a new collar, this is where his old one stayed. Even when we moved hubby made sure that when it was built the collar got put back on, we still had Elwood at this time.

Sitting there the other evening hearing this jingle brought me back so many memories and also reminded me that he is still always with us and watching over. The kids still talk of him and mention they miss him but that he’s up in heaven watching us.

While out there with the kids and Beck I had to take a moment to capture this piece of him. That will still always be a piece of us! Even if he was only here with us at this home for two days.

RIP Elwood… ❤

Always go with your gut feeling!

You know that feeling deep down that is like the little voice you hear of the angel and the devil when you are trying to make a decision. That uneasy feeling or the butterflies of pure joy. Without a doubt when you have to make a decision go with what you’re feeling, you’ll never beContinue reading “Always go with your gut feeling!”

Vibrant colour

20120504-328C0839-WM, a photo by {Pamela Zmija Photography} on Flickr. I love how gorgeous and vibrant these dandelions are… Even if they are considered “weeds” they are gorgeous when appreciated for their macro beauty. One of the biggest reasons I love photography, seeing the beauty in things that when looked at through another persons eyes areContinue reading “Vibrant colour”
