Three Years on the Farm

Three years ago today, we arrived from St. Louis to live full-time on the farm. No regrets, no looking back, and our marriage is stronger than ever. I am now in the sweetest sweet spot of my life!

Beach and Nachos

This morning, Buttercup and I took a long run, from the farm all the way down to the beach! Sweet Baby G grabbed Gidget and drove down so we wouldn’t have to run all the way back (thank goodness).

After some play time at the sea (Gidget does great off the leash) and some farm chores, we closed out the day with some crazy good nachos: slow roasted pulled pork and chickpea refritos… DELICIOUS!

Dogs in Rome

I had to pick up my new passport in Rome, so SBG and I made a day of it… with the dogs! The US Embassy is near Villa Borghese, so we found a good parking lot there.

After I picked up my passport, we walked the dogs to several of the usual sites: Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon, the Campi(DOG)lio, the Colosseum, and the Forum. We also snagged a little gelato at a small bar before making our way home.

Here was the most pleasant surprise: the people in Rome were very, very friendly to the dogs. (They found B-Cup especially attractive.) Lots of smiles and stopping to introduce themselves. It was really nice because not all Italians are fond of dogs.

The girls did great (and were totally exhausted), so we’re hoping to do another day trip together soon!

Buttercup Romps!

After  a couple of days of snow (about 2.5 feet in total), B-Cups decides to have some fun. (The snow has melted a bit – thankfully – but it’s still plenty deep for playing!)
