You left … and forgot to tell my heart how to go on without you … As I sit here, tears in my eyes … I can barely type the words … they are stuck at the ends of my fingertips like the words catch in my throat. I can’t believe it has been two […]

I am completely and 100% obsessed with detox water this week. I cannot get enough of this stuff and have made several batches. Each of these detox waters smell wonderful, are refreshingly delicious, have a refreshing taste, look absolutely beautiful and has tons of health benefits! My current favorite is Cucumber, Lime & Mint detox […]

May 1 was always a big deal in our household. Why? It was Layla’s birthday of course! We would celebrate with a doggie cake, ice cream, presents, singing and lots of snuggles! Today is May 1 … Layla’s birthday. She would have been 13 today … Instead of picking up a doggie cake, going for […]

It’s a cold and rainy morning again in West Lafayette, IN, but we’re heading out early to drop our precious baby girl off at an unfamiliar place for surgery. To say I was nervous is an understatement. My stomach was in knots … we were running a touch behind that morning and I kept saying […]
