        Mary, I appreciate you so much. You work hard to share beautiful ideas and your sweet dogs. Thank you from my heart. Also, I just made your Cheddar/Broccoli cornbread from your last post. Absolutely delish! We are celebrating with Hoppin’ John over rice and cornbread. Thank you for helping me make tonight’s dinner the best. You are loved. Best to you and your family in 2023.

    Happy New Year to you and your family. Wishing you a happy, healthy 2023. The girls are adorable! You find the cutest headbands and sweaters. The girls always make me smile. December has indeed been so wet and cold. We’re having a damp New Years here but it’s so much warmer which is wonderful and I’m so thankful for it! I’m still enjoying my LCF centerpiece. It gets spritzed daily. Happy 2023! Clara❀

    You three brighten my day, ALWAYS!
    Sadie is sitting here beside me wondering where her cozy silver sweater and New Year’s crown are.
    She did get new tartan pjs to match her mom’s. I find mine warm and cozy. Sadie isn’t as impressed with her pjs.
    Happy New Year, girls!

    Happy New Year! May 2023 bring you joy as you bring so much joy to others. I know I can count on your recipes to work (just like my other favorite, Ina) and you spark new ideas with your creative projects. Add to that, the fun of seeing the lake in all seasons and the girls in all their Pawlidays finery, always starts my day with a smile. Thank you.

    I so enjoy all your posts and as others have said, your positivity. The way the news focuses today, you are such a breath of fresh air. I used to live on Lake Erie and then on a smaller lake so the lake views are really appreciated. I miss the water. Lola and Sophie are a delight. I’m so impressed at how well they behave for the photo shoots (and treats). Lol
    May your 2023 be healthy, happy and prosperous.

    I always love the puppy posts. And I love those sweaters. I wish I had found them back when you first bought them. I have two cats that I buy sweaters for ( for pictures).

    Thanks for all the beautiful photos and recipes and DIY, not to mention your wonderful and sweet dogs. I wish you all a lot of joy and happiness for the year to come.
    For me it’s the beginning of a new life as a retired lady
    and I’m ready and eager to make the most of it and at last be able to DIY more. Kisses from a little French village. MarieB
