After 15.5 years of kisses, cuddles and love.. our eldest Pug, Jordan, crossed the Rainbow Bridge last week. We didn’t know about rescues in 2004, so we found Jordan in a pet store. I remember looking at a bunch of pups and seeing all of them just go berserk at the sight of people.. except …

I was so very blessed to know my Grandmother, aka “Nanny”. She turned 93 about two weeks before she passed away in 2015. There is so much in my high school history book that she actually LIVED THROUGH. I’m amazed at some of the stories she has told me. One thing nagged me though. It …

This “getting older” thing sucks! I feel like every time I turn around, I’m saying good-bye to another older family member. This time it was “Uncle Joe”. One of my favorite things about him was how much he loved his wife. Sure, they bickered like old married couples do, but if you heard the way …

I wish I was kidding. I really do. Summer vacation is supposed to be for fun. Summer camps, sports, outings, day trips, vacations.. All of those things are synonymous with “summer”. Not our summer. Not this year. It’s so hard to type through tears, but here goes.. Mini’s birthday was in June. Her and I …

I decided to link up with BlogHer’s November 2014 NaBloPoMo writing prompts. I have been looking for a good blog challenge and this is it! I already missed the post for November 3rd and it is after midnight on the 5th (meaning I technically missed the 4th), but I wanted to do the November 4th …
