Photo Ledge

If you’ve been here from the beginning, you might remember when I DIY’ed some canvas art to hang over our buffet table. I still love how they turned out, but I am definitely ready for something new.

I have been wanting to take the pups to a beach for a long time. Since before we got them, I’m pretty sure. And since I have been feeling like I just needed a break from life for a few days, I decided why not?  Continue reading “Beach Getaway”
