Life Lately

Hello, guys! Happy Halloween!!

It’s is an extra special day because my sweet Tilly girl is 5 years old today!! She is the sweetest, hilarious, most adoring doggy that I could have ever asked for. I love her to pieces and don’t know what I would do without her. Happy, happy Birthday, my little baby!

As you may have seen, we went on a little vacation up to the North Shore of Minnesota a few weeks ago with my family. We spent 5 glorious days on the shore of Lake Superior.

The Fall colors were just stunning. Nature always provides me with respite and fills me with peace in this crazy world. It was just what I needed to reset and unplug!

Tilly had so much fun hiking and scaling big rocks!

As always, I have chosen 2 posts from the last link party to feature this week.

My first feature this week comes from my friend CoCo at The Crowned Goat! She always has the best seasonal decorating ideas and her spooky season decor with bats and pumpkins is just incredible! You will find some amazing decorating tips from her, I’m sure of it!

    Looks like Tilly had as much fun as you did Rachel! I wish our pup was better behaved so we could take him on vacation. We have been wanting to take him on a trip, but our small trips around town prove to be interesting so we can only imagine what a long one would look like with him. Happy Birthday Tilly!
