My sweet friend Valeria (who happens to be the designer behind Little Butterfly Wings) recently lost her sweet poochie. As she was sharing with a small group of us all that her little guy had been through, I was heartbroken for her. It was a nice reminder that, even though my dogs can be MAJOR pains in the neck at times, I'm super glad they're here with me.

To honor her sweet baby, she created an adorable kit. I'm not usually one for theme-y kits and whatnot, but I rather love this one!!  Here's the page I made with it.

And I don't usually do this, but here's a look at the kit she made. If you feel so inclined, go check it out. It's on sale for the weekend, I do believe.

Love my knucklehead puppies! My house is never clean, and they're always into stuff, but I wouldn't trade them for the world!

This week has been a quiet week around here. Sebastian is at gymnastics camp, and Meagan is at horse camp all week. Isaac has had music camp in the mornings to learn to play his violin. And even when he IS home after his music camp, he's the quiet kid of the family anyway. So it is rather peaceful around here.

I've been trying to take this week to get caught up on a few things that have been pushed aside for way too long. And I've been trying to get back into the groove with things I enjoy doing but haven't had much time for lately. Making layouts is high up on that list. Last week I managed to finish my first quarter of 2014 and get my album printed. Having it in hand gives that extra boost of motivation to keep at it. I do find that with less time, but not less photos, my style has shifted more and more towards 'keep it simple and get it done.'

Here's a layout I did for today's Something Old Something New sale at TLP. This is me with my co-workers at the school. We all have our quirks, but I love these ladies. It's great to work with people you can call friends.

I love this guy. Fourteen years ago today, I met him at the end of the isle and said yes. And while he'll probably kill me for posting this goofy picture of us, I love that we are goofy together. He makes me smile, when he doesn't make me want to scream. Happy anniversary, Lucas!  Love, Me
