Sweet visitor

Our friend Trisha stopped by for a visit today and Paisley fell in love. Luckily, Trisha loves dogs. We haven’t seen Trisha since last summer because she lives far away, but we loved getting to catch up with her today. Today’s #OneGoodThing was our sweet visitor! Day 141 of 365. And Day 507 in a row! 1…

Calla lilies return

These beautiful calla lilies finally blossomed in our front yard today! They die away in winter and we never know if they’ll really come back or not. We’ve been enjoying following their progress as they sprouted. Today’s #OneGoodThing was the return of our beautiful magenta calla lilies! Day 140 of 365. And Day 506 in a row!…

Fast errands & fabulous fruit

Today’s #OneGoodThing was shockingly fast errands that normally take forever (think DMV and hospital lab).

Summer fruits are our favorite food group. The…

Paisley’s new friend

A sweet repair guy came to our house today and Paisley fell in love. He was kind enough to give her a belly rub turned full-on doggie massage, and I couldn’t help but capture their adorableness together. Today’s #OneGoodThing was Paisley’s new friend. Thanks Bryon! Day 136 of 365. And Day 502 in a row! 1 year…

Roses in unexpected places

Our little car needed new brakes today and I was happy to discover these gorgeous white roses lining the front of the auto repair shop. Then I giggled to myself that I’d literally stopped to smell the roses. They just feel magical and ethereal. Today’s #OneGoodThing was finding these beautiful roses in an unexpected place.…
