Love for a lifetime...

Love sign

On this Valentine's Day I wanted to share this church sign. It has spoken to me at a time when I needed so much love. Oftentimes we think that we are always the ones in the relationship that need the love and support. I would often say to Dynamo, "I feel bad that I need you way more than you need me." But, love isn't about keeping score. And, sometimes you may be giving love in ways that you don't realize, but it was somehow just what your spouse or friend needed at the time. Sometimes in our lives we are the ones that need the love and sometimes we are the ones being the rock. It doesn't matter how many times you need something, God doesn't want us to keep score. Give of yourself completely and wholly to the ones you love and care about. Don't expect anything in return. Don't expect a thank you or keep track. God wants us to be loving, kind, compassionate, faithful, and giving of ourselves always. Love is truly enough. Do everything with a happy loving heart. ALWAYS!

I'm so thankful for my wonderful, devoted, kind, gentle, and strong husband. This is our 10th Valentine's Day together. There's no one on earth I'd rather grow old and wrinkly with than him. Hold onto those you love with all your might. Protect them, care for them, and show them you love them. Enjoy each and every moment together. I love you forever and always, Dynamo!

Lovely lavender goodness

From time to time we change things up a little, and the lavender is no exception.

Lavender soap by The Daily Scrub

We wanted to give it a little extra umph and power so we added Purple Brazilian Clay to the recipe.

Besides being a natural colorant, the clay is known to draw toxins out of your body leaving it better than before!

We encourage you to this new recipe that's better than before and let us know what you think!

Little Man turns 3!!

I'm a little late with this post and I apologize, but I'm back on track now!

Our little man turned 3 on January 24th! Time sure does fly! We pulled out the usual party hat and got him all ready!

He could hardly contain himself as Dynamo lit the candle on the half of the doggie bone!

We sang to him and then let him enjoy his treat!

It's so hard to believe that he is already 3. We have had so many fun times together and he has brought so much joy to our lives. He makes us smile from ear to ear all the time! He is so full of himself and full of life! He truly is a blessing to our lives. Animals are such a gift from God. We are to care for them, love them, and keep them safe. After all...we all want to be the person our dog thinks we are! Their love is unconditional.
