Well, it has been a busy couple of weeks and I finally have a minute to write, although I’ll make it quick.  I have a few posts planned for next week including some recipes and an after Christmas gift guide! Stay tuned.

But first, I have to tell you about my favorite gift this holiday season.

Meet Rosie.

Meet Rosie

My parents adopted her a few weeks ago – she is a eight-month-old Brussels Griffon/Shih Tzu mix that came from a high-kill shelter in South Carolina.  And she’s adorable.   She’s thrilled to have a family and her sister Lily is just happy to have someone to play with. And thanks to Olive, we know how much love you get from those rescues.

Rosie likes to dig in the mud, but doesn’t like baths.

And of course, the whole family loves her. We just need to make some room.  Maybe I need a king size bed.

My other favorite gift (one that I actually could unwrap and take home) is my new DSLR camera! All of my harassing paid off and Mom and Dad gave me a new Canon Rebel T3i.  So, soon you will see some much cleaner photos. I just have to learn how to use it. 🙂
