dogs in the house

Life with a dog...

  is just somehow better than life without one.  Our rescue mutt is Raven.  Before Christmas, Marilyn Peryer of Style House Photography was at the house doing a shoot and took this precious photo when I wasn't looking:

Raven is a very skittish dog.  She is also incredibly sweet and very social - but everything scares her.  So to find this in the pile of photographs Marilyn sent to me was a wonderful surprise.

Thanks Marilyn!

It's a sunny Sunday and this made me smile as I walked through the room, so I took a picture.  A little later I walked through again...

Someone else liked this spot, and put that sunshine to good use!


I hope you notice and enjoy the sunny spots in your home.
