A visit from the old neighbors (and I’m stealing their backyard)

This weekend, a few of my old neighbors stopped by to see my new place. It’s so nice that we are keeping in touch, and I’m really thankful that they came over to visit us. I gave them a tour and we had a blast catching up over drinks. I think the kitchen was their…

The Fence is Up!!!

The Fence is Up!!!

Roxy is a happy lady! The fence gate was installed today. It looks awesome!!! It’s a chain link fence about 4 ft high, with all the heavy-duty essentials for keeping a super tall 90lb dog contained. She just loves it… and I love making her happy and keeping her safe. She likes to lay in…
