Happy 1st Day of Summer! 😎☀️🌴



Today is the longest day of the year!! 😎Woke up this morning to a pretty cloudy/overcast day in SB. We call this “June gloom” haha. Hopefully it will all burn off by this afternoon and we get some sunshine!

SB is very into parades and celebrations of any kind. Check out the Summer Solstice Celebrations that will be happening this weekend! Sadly we will be out of town (again…we’ve been SO busy), but love all the festivities of SB. Here are some other fun/interesting articles about Summer Solstice: Traditions Around the World and Summer Solstice isn’t just about weather – it’s also about romance.

Hope you all are having a great week and get a chance to be outside and enjoy the longest day of the year!!

Feliz Cinco de Mayo!

Wishing you all a GREAT day filled with lots of food, fun and of course MARGARITAS! Sadly, I will not be having a margarita (maybe a virgin one), but will celebrate with lots of chips and yummy food! Check out some of these delicious margarita recipes! Can’t wait to try them ALL at some point.

I’m also hoping to get my hands on some of these yummy cupcakes from Sprinkles.

The Casamigos Margarita cupcakes are just delicious and are used with George Clooney’s tequila…how can you say NO to that?!?

Ok everyone, enjoy your day and the weekend! See you next week.


Happy National Puppy Day! 🐾🐾

Today is National Puppy Day (woof woof) and Friday!!!

 ❤️ 🐾❤️🐾❤️

What a combination! TGIF friends.


We are the proud owners of TWO wonderful white miniature schnauzers Emma & Dash. Here are some adorable pictures of them both as puppies.


    This girl picked me out 2.5.11 ❤


    Went to “look” at this cutie on 2.14.15 and of course ended up taking him home with us! ❤

These two are always up for a road trip or adventure with us and LOVE us unconditionally. I can’t even imagine life without either of them. They are not only best buddies, but they are also a huge part of our family. We love them dearly!

Look at those serious faces!

Companionship is probably one of the best things about having dogs. I feel so close to each of my pups and I knew we all need each other in some way. There’s also nothing better than coming home to their smiling faces! They are so precious and fill up my heart and life.

A few years ago I shared that our pups are pure bread mini schnauzers and actually share the same dad. Read all about our sweet pups here. Don’t forget to check out Skansen Kennel in Sebastopol and read about mini schnauzers here.

Here are a few of my favorite quotes about dogs to round up this long post about how much I love my schnauzies.

“Everything I know I learned from dogs.” – Nora Roberts

“When the Man waked up he said, ‘What is Wild Dog doing here?’ And the Woman said, ‘His name is not Wild Dog any more, but the First Friend, because he will be our friend for always and always and always.’” — Rudyard Kipling 

“Dogs don’t rationalize. They don’t hold anything against a person. They don’t see the outside of a human but the inside of a human.” Cesar Millan 

“It is amazing how much love and laughter they bring into our lives and even how much closer we become with each other because of them.” — John Grogan

“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.” — Roger Caras 

“Happiness is a warm puppy.” — Charles M. Schulz

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”– Josh Billings

Awwwww. Dogs are so wonderful! ❤️ 🐾❤️🐾❤️22539684_10106013865322517_4893829944599991828_n

Happy National Puppy Day Emma & Dash! We LOVE you oh so much! Thanks for being so loving, spunky, fun and keeping us on our toes!

Happy Friday friends! Enjoy your weekend and we’ll see you next week.
