Spent a four day getaway at Ware River. My dog tagged along for the adventure. Took her on a little kayaking trip on the river. Y’all we had so much fun! Here are some awesome memories I got to share with my dog, Ariel.


I love spending time with my dog & I love to garden. I garden in the front yard & unfortunately it’s not fenced in. For the most part my dog will stay by me and hang out while I’m gardening. Although, as soon as she sees a dog walking by she’s not to be trusted & will run in the street to greet him. To keep her safe I put her in this enclosed play pen so we can still hang out together & she can partake in what I love to do in the spring and summertime.

This year we planted lavender, thyme, rosemary, basil, asparagus, peas, lettuce I bought a tomato that’s already been started and we planted three different types of flowers!

Happy planting!

Wands For Wildlife

You have Lashes for days. I’m pretty sure you are using mascara to achieve that look. Just a reminder, don’t toss away your old mascara wands. Put them to good use and send them to

Appalachian Wildlife Refuge. I will be going on my third year sending them my old mascara wands.

Did you know something as simple as an old mascara wand can help wildlife?!? Appalachian Wild uses mascara brushes to help remove fly eggs and larva from the fur of animals & our cleaned mascara wands are great for getting off all the little bugs that have become attached to their fur.

Clean off those old wands in hot soapy water and we can put them to good use!

Clean brushes can be sent to: Appalachian Wild, P.O. Box 1211, Skyland, NC 28776
