It’s tiki time!!! We are celebrating a lot of things here at our House as of late, so we decided to have a tiki party.
Is there a more fun theme for a festive outdoor fiesta? We think not! In the end, Harvey was a little pooped out, so he decided to ‘tiki’ a nap….it had to be done.
It’s time to take a break. I decided a while back (after this post actually) to take more time to take time off. It’s so important to your sanity and your wellbeing to stop what you are doing from time to time and really focus on the art of relaxation. And while my “time off” is not necessarily a traditional version, I will be taking a few days here and there away from the blog to collect my thoughts and generate some new ideas.
In a world of “go go go” and “the next big thing”, it is easy to get sucked into the whirlwind of life. But we mustn’t forget that the best, most innovative ideas come from a refreshed and relaxed mind. It’s just a fact.
So as I go on an adventure for the next month, I hope you bear with me, sit tight and maybe even tag along for the ride. (More to come on these adventures soon enough!) It’s going to be interesting to say the least.
I hope it is a thought full weekend for y’all!
It was about time we tackle an obvious favorite breed, the Shar Pei. Yes, Harvey happens to be part Shar Pei (part unknown terrier), but my love of this ever-so-wrinkled breed began long ago.
I’ve always had an affinity for wrinkles, both of the canine and human variety, and what more adorably wrinkled creature is there than the Shar Pei?
FUN FACT: Shar Pei’s lose their wrinkles as they age. They are the true fountain of youth, on four legs. I know my Sharperrier is keeping me young, at least.

Although I live about 30 minutes from the coast (and such a beautiful one at that), it shocks me how little time I’ve dedicated to lounging on and enjoying the amazing beaches of SoCal. This summer, I plan to change that.
In order to fully embrace this new, beachy lifestyle, we’re gonna need some swag…right? Here are a couple of items on the wishlist.
beach chair / radio / bag / octopus dog toy / towel / bathing suit / dog carrier / beach ball dog toy
Sun, sand and Sharperriers make for a very memorable beach day!
Being part Shar Pei – typical water-hating breed – and all, it often shocks me how much Mr. Harvey loves the beach (Exhibit A). He could run, sit, stand, sleep and literally bathe in the sandy glory of the beach for the rest of time. A swift breeze and some cool sand is all this guy needs to find pure bliss. And as any mother will tell you (canine or other), when your baby is happy, you are happy.
And thus was the perfect afternoon along the coast.
