I’m back and I have the best news ever.


I've had a much needed break from blogging and being so visible online, and it's done me good. My life has changed so much since I've been away from you guys! And all for the better. Now, I am back and with the best news ever. I am leaving my job with the corporate world and starting my own business. That's right! I get to be my own boss full time. Many of you know I've done freelance web design and graphic design on the side for years, but it's come to the point where the corporate world just Continue Reading

Early spring in the little garden

  Friday was a holiday for my work so I spent the most gorgeous day outside doing a little yard cleanup and garden work. Kyla got a little hot and sought out the one shady spot in the backyard, under a chair I brought out for reading.

I'd have to agree! Myles is so cute, full of energy and very squeaky and barky. I love it. Kyla has a sordid past Continue Reading

Jimmy and the Beast

Observe the seemingly cute dog and her unsuspecting victim. As the victim worships her, she gives warning. Note the cocked ear and the hungry look in her eye. Strange sounds emit from the evil mouth. The attack is swift and fierce. Her prey is vanquished. Continue Reading
