Cutest little bulldog EVER!

So I am typing away at my “desk” at The NYC Bagel & Coffee House when I see this little guy across the room. It was love at first sight! When T-Bone’s mommy turned around she could see the excitement in my eyes!

Not sure if anything can top this joy today! And it has already been a pretty stellar day!

Walking back from the festivities, I smiled inside thinking about what I could make with the remaining juicy cherries – Fresh juice?! Cobbler?! So many ideas raced through my mind!  Continue reading

Joy #1: I saw this photo of a squirrel sleeping in his food dish and just had to share – I LOVE squirrels! It came from my favorite blog, The Worlds top 10 of Anything and Everything!!!. There are so many people out there who don’t love squirrels and I don’t get it. Look how adorable he is!!!

If I was an animal, I’d surely be a squirrel! What type of animal would you be? Continue reading
