doggie destinations: virginia is for (dog) lovers

When I realized that my babies aka dogs were not going to be in my wedding, let alone at a kennel (albeit a really nice doggie spa called Wagsworth Manor…), I immediately thought, “I need to plan a vacation for them.”  They’ve been to North Carolina, our Delaware beaches, Cape May, New Jersey, and lots of places in New England, so obviously their tastes are … Continue reading doggie destinations: virginia is for (dog) lovers

toy story: halloween edition

Ever since I decided to start making my costumes, the world of possibilities has seemed endless.  I usually start planning the following year’s ensemble November 1st (or really October 28th if I’m being honest), and then force Craig into some male counterpart that he never wants to be, but does because he loves me.  We’ve been a Tiffany’s box and gemologist (Craig thought he was … Continue reading toy story: halloween edition

Whenever I travel, I feel like a salesperson for the state of Delaware.  Small but mighty, one of our most beautiful bragging rights lies in the jewel of the state, the Delaware beaches.  Between Cape Henlopen State Park in Lewes, the towns of Rehoboth and Dewey, the quieter Delaware Seashore State Park, and Fenwick Island, there are plenty of places to enjoy the sun, surf … Continue reading doggie destinations: delaware beaches

doggie destinations: new england

When it comes to my style of pet parenting, I’m known as “The Spoiler.”  My dogs know exactly how to manipulate me into getting exactly what they want– an extra walk, treats before bedtime, filet mignon for dinner…ok, just kidding, that was only twice…a week. My boyfriend and I love to travel, and one of the hardest parts of jet setting around the country is … Continue reading doggie destinations: new england
