Happy Friday and Welcome to the ‘What’s up, Weekend’ Friday Link Up! Welcome to the revamped link-up that Charlotte, from My Pixie Blog, Christina from The Brave Wanderer and I host call, ‘What’s up, Weekend?’ For the last two years, Fridays have always been (and always will be) a place where I reflect on the happy and grateful things in our lives, but more specifically from the last week.

Charlie Update – Two Week Post-Op Update 2   Recently updated !

It’s high time for a Charlie update, am I right?!  Time is flying you guys and in the case of Charlie’s recovery, that is good news!  He’s healing super quickly and we couldn’t be happier where he’s at.  Here he is at 14 and 15 days post-op — doesn’t he look incredible?  His stitches came out on Monday morning and he will be going back on August 9th for a consultation with his surgeon and it is at this time that we’ll get the all-clear to begin rehab and hydrotherapy.  Charlie and his pal, Lily (front). She and Charlie both had CCL […]


Our 7-day Paddling and Camping Adventures 12   Recently updated !

A Sentence a Day – June Edition 12

A couple of months ago, I stumbled upon Julie’s blog, Julie’s Touch of Style, through our Peaceful Posse Facebook group in one of the daily blog threads and I kind of fell in love with the idea of summarizing each day of the month with one or two sentences, hence the name A Sentence A Day.  April’s Sentence a Day post is here if you’d like to read it and May’s Sentence a Day can be found here. Leslie is kind enough to organize the link up and it opens up the first Thursday of each and every month.  So if you feel like playing […]
