Today is Duke’s 1st birthday!! I can’t believe he’s already a year old, and it’s been just 10 months since we brought that fluffy 7-pound puppy home with us… Duke has definitely become his own dog and forged his own path in this house.

Red, white and ruffled!

Thumbnail for 1933

Red White and Blue Sangria

A delicious, refreshing, and patriotic sangria that is perfect for any 4th of July celebration or summer bbq.  For me, it’s not officially summer until the lightning bugs come out.

Friday Favs, 6/27/14

Thumbnail for 1919
Some of my favorite new submissions this week:   When CW reader Jamie ordered a birthday cake for her husband Jim Bob, she encountered one of the funniest dilemmas I’ve seen yet – and that is really saying something.
