Obedience School (excerpt!)

Anyone who knows me is well aware of my dog obsession–one which the phrase “crazy dog lady” doesn’t even begin to describe. Live dogs aren’t my only passion: I’m also a dog motif enthusiast, and as a child would only wear clothing that depicted dogs (although I also found cats acceptable).

Memorial Day (in my opinion the most relaxing of the patriotic holidays–all the fun of a day off with none of the July 4 pressure) marks the unofficial beginning of sunny, chlorine-scented days separated by short, warm nights.

Browse through my holiday project round-up to find a … Continue reading
