Puppy Reveal… Meet ’Camille’💗

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted. ~Aesop

Hello, sweet friend…

Our family has grown exponentially during these last 2 years…

a kitty, horse, and most recently a puppy…

I am so excited to introduce you to our sweet, sweet Camille. Last weekend we brought her home with us… After finding a Morkie breeder over two months ago Joe and I had decided to take a leap of faith and put a deposit on this little puppy that hadn’t been born…much less seen..yet deeply hoped for.

She is currently a little over two months old and weighs one and a half pounds… No doubt she is a precious gift from above. Joe & I are both so overjoyed to be her pet guardians and to take her on this adventure of life with us!

What’s Cooking…

Since this was Camille’s first 4th of July I wanted it to be celebrated! So I decorated the outside deck (fortunately the weather was perfect)… I cooked veggie burgers, corn on the cob and made a side dish of old-fashioned potato salad which is super easy and always a favorite!

Old Fashioned Potato Salad


  • 3 pounds russet potatoes about 5 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 ¼ cups mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • ¼ cup pickle relish
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons white vinegar
  • 5 hard boiled eggs diced
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 5 green onions diced
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Paprika


  • Place diced potatoes in a large pot and cover with water. Add a couple teaspoons of salt and bring the water to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Cook until potatoes are fork tender, about 10 minutes. Watch closely and do not overcook or the potatoes will become mushy. Drain and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, stir together mayonnaise, mustard, pickle relish, garlic powder, sugar and vinegar.
  • Add potatoes and stir to coat completely. Fold in eggs, celery and green onions. Taste and add salt and pepper as desired. If desired, top with a few sliced eggs and a sprinkle of paprika.
