Dog etiquette takes practice
Since rescuing my pup more than seven years ago, I’ve discovered the joy of having my dog socialize with as many pups as he can. The truth is, he’s such a friendly dog (especially for a Chihuahua mix) I would hate to deny him the ability to socialize. Plus, as they told me at the... Read more »

Why classic candy shops are not out of style

Why classic candy shops are not out of style
So while I’ll admit I’m still learning about my new surroundings, one of the things I LOVED about my old neighborhood was that there was a mix of everything nearby. Yes, that’s partially biased to say, but I did get to learn it so well. So, I set out to find my new go-to sweet shop.... Read more »
