A New Family Member

We are anticipating a new family member in April!

Meet our new Great Dane puppy-- born on Valentine's Day. He'll be staying with his mamma until he's 8 weeks old. We're so excited to bring him home.

My sister and her husband recently got a Great Dane puppy too. Her name is Bella. Currently she's 3 1/2 months old and 51 pounds. She came for a visit the other night and I think I fell in love.

Isn't she beautiful?

Our little guy should look very similar to her in a few months.

And then when he's fully grown, probably something like this: Picture of Olaf, a Great Dane dog on Dogster

They are supposed to be great family dogs and are nicknamed "gentle giants."

We have a few weeks until we can pick him up, so we have a little more time to read, get a few things ready. . . and to pick out a name!

What I've Been Up To . . .

I'm still around, my friends. I promised to return to you soon. I appreciate everyone who takes the time to read my little blog.

The past few weeks have been crazy for me.

I've been sick. 

I've been playing for a musical at one of the local high schools the past several weeks.

Down time has been precious and something had to give. It's been this blog. But it seems like a better choice than time with my family or sleep.

I will return with renewed enthusiasm soon.

Unfortunately, I had plans once upon a time to do all these cute things for Valentine's Day, but then life happened. This year I will even be lucky if I see my husband on Valentine's Day.

Some people hate on Valentine's Day for being so commercial or silly. I like the idea of setting aside a day of being intentional in romancing your spouse. My favorite things to make or do for Valentine's Day are hand made.

Here are a few things from others that I just love. I hope they inspire you.
