This Thanksgiving, Pops, myself and the whole crew went to Yosemite for a few days. Needless to say the views were amazing – I simply LOVE this park! The days were cool – with a nice chill in the air! The air was super clear – making for a great time to snap some photos! […]
Last week Pops and I took a mini trip down to Malibu and the Central Coast of CA (more on those stops later), so finding out today’s word for Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 is “HOME” seems so appropriate. Returning home means we’re back with our little sweet potato – BUBBA! love this little stinker!
Ready for day 11 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013! The prompt today is PLAY!! Something Bubba is always ready for!! I think everyone needs a Frenchie to play ball with!
Here we are at Day 4 of Susannah Conway’s August Break 2013 and the word for the day is LOVE! AND who doesn’t know how much I LOVE this little French wonder boy?!?! I have so many goofy names for him it would be hard to fit them all in here…but the all-time favorite (and one […]
Yes, Life is GOOD – and very, very busy (both at home and at work)!! For fun, this past weekend, we went down to the little central California town of Cayucos to see a movie showing of our friend Sam’s latest documentary. What documentary you may ask? Well, this one: Sam’s latest documentary tells the […]
Were you wondering what happened to my Friday Fabulous Five? Well, this week, my fabulous nephew Ty was in town for a quick visit, so, instead of posting I was enjoying 5 of my Favorite Fabulous guys!! Each one of these cutie pies brings so much love, joy and happiness to my heart there are […]
How do you put yourself first? How does taking time for yourself help make you happier? These are the current “Life Well Lived” Getting Happy questions? WOW – these are big ones. Questions that, unlike Bubba above who only lives in the moment, I don’t think I’ve even mastered the answer to yet – though […]
As you may have noticed, this week I was gone and away from my computer a lot! You see, our anniversary falls every year over the President’s Day weekend, so we always have a bit of extra time off that we like to spend together. We actually picked this date to get married based […]
AND for the BUBBA lovers: Many Blessings to you and your’s this holiday season and hopes for lots of joy in the New Year!
I love our little town of Los Gatos!! We have family friendly events for EVERYTHING! My favorite is the Halloween celebration for Dogs!! It is absolutely amazing how many people participate and how many stores and businesses support everyone who does. Here are some photos from last Saturday’s fun: The streets were packed with costumed […]
Yes, that is a naughty dog up above…though he has no idea that he’s being naughty. I shot this in Malibu this past weekend when we were visiting some friends. It was a long weekend filled with friends – some old, and some new, fun & laughter, love, good food, and GREAT music! Here’s to […]
Ok, that doesn’t sound too bad does it?? It’s not, and I’m not complaining…well, except I would’ve liked more time to blog about our trip this week. I have more photos from beautiful Lake Tahoe coming soon…what a fabulous time of year to visit the lake! There’s still snow on the mountains, the air is […]
So, so sorry for the delay with this day’s winners – the LOVE has just been overwhelming…and I’m simply basking in it!! The two winners of the cookbook of their choice are: Sue Favorite foods are fruits and veggies. I’m not vegan, but love all the fresh things and try to do as little processed […]
Of course, we couldn’t go on vacation and return with nothing for our precious bulldog, so, here’s what Bubba-loo received: His very own, stylish, Harley sweatshirt (with hood). He paraded his “beefcake” look all around our town this morning – to a lot of positive reviews. He was very pleased with himself after his “fashion […]
I send happy weekend wishes out to the world as I sit here on this chilly (40 degree) Saturday morning listening to the sounds of my oldest Grandson Hunter and my hubby Pops as they read books, put together puzzles and make up games in the living room. They’re having their “boy” fun time and […]
This week has been INSANE!! I swear every year I say this is not going to happen…and I start all the preparations early. My decorations were up before Thanksgiving week was over. Most of my presents were purchased before the second week of December began…the problem is the word “most” in that sentence. The reason […]

Follow my blog with bloglovin Last Monday there was a Pet Blessing at our church in honor of St. Francis and his love for animals. Pops and I popped over to the church with Bubba on our morning walk so he could be blessed (which was great for my nerves seeing as we’d be leaving […]
Sometimes I struggle with how crazy, hectic and difficult life can be. Admittedly, I create all these issues and the stress and anxiety that come along with them. Honestly, my life is good. Better than good actually, it’s great. Though some days I lose sight of the simple philosophies I want to live by. As […]
The afternoon of Pop’s (BFBJ’s) birthday, he and I and our two daughter, two grandsons and crazy french bulldog headed to the beach in Santa Cruz. They have a great beach there that is kind enough to allow dogs to visit. This guy is certainly happiest when he’s on the beach! It was a fabulous […]
Yep, on June 15th 62 years ago “Beloved Free Baba Jimi” (a.k.a. Pops, Jimi, my love….) was born. I know, I know, he looks way too young to be 62. Ya know what? I’m going to let you in on a little secret of his….. YOGA but not just any yoga…. Bubba Yoga!!!! Every morning, […]
I’ve been uploading some of my favorite photos to Flickr lately. Check them out by clicking the Bubba picture below.
There are so many incredible people in my life, and I just happen to have hundreds of photos of them. Here are some of the boys that I love, love, love with all my heart. This first one was taken at Stinson Beach last year. They look cold, but oh so handsome! Pops and his […]
This photo just had to be shared…notice the lip – the “Elvis” lip. A very common look for this studly dog. “I said One for the Money, Two for the Show, Three to get Ready, Now go CATS go!”
Perfection is overrated….I don’t do perfection – not because I don’t want to, but because I find it utterly impossible to attain that goal – in my garden, my life, my blog, etc. So, I stick with the best I can do at this moment. For instance, in my garden, I wish I had one […]
