Easy Chocolate Fondue

I am not a fan of getting big gifts for Valentines day. I am all about keeping it simple. That said, I do like to do something special. This year I decided to surprise my husband and kids with a chocolate fondue and spread. We love going out to fondue,…

Puppy Love: EmBARKing on a Puppy Journey

This past Christmas, Santa surprised our family with a golden retriever puppy. There she was, sweet as can be, all wrapped with a bow under the tree on Christmas morning. Could anything be more magical? Honestly, no, it was one of the best and sweetest surprises ever. It was completely…

Our Fall Favorites

We love Autumn! I mean who doesn’t, with things like warm apple cider, beautiful colored leaves, and cooler cozy evenings, what’s not to love?  There are so many fun things to do during fall, it's sometimes hard to fit them all in-- but somehow we always do.   Below I have…
