I will be leaving for Porto and London in a couple of weeks!

Please let me know if you have any suggestions for favourite places to see, take photos, eat and/or shop for both cities.

Thank you! :D

This One is for the Animals

Recently, some of you have requested for a posting on Fig Newton, but what better than to celebrate both cats and dogs together?  Here's to all those animals that make us smile, laugh, and most importantly, love.

The cast of characters include (please pardon some of the fuzzy shots):
Fig Newton (yessss, I know she's got 5 pics here... ;P), Bean, Lomo Lomski, Khai, Lola, Iggy and Noah.....

Hope you have a happy furry weekend!

Nice, Nice, Special, Special

is how I feel about the following:

The loveliest (surprise) snail mail from J, M and R which puts a permanent smile on my face (Tack and Vielen Dank! xoxo) ....

Favourite snacks from Amsterdam (thank you, M! :**)....

Discovering delicious Raspberry Ale from England...mmm....

Having porchetta sandwiches (with rapini and truffle sauce) for the first time at Porchetta and Co. ....

Finding a nice gesture initiated by someone in the city....

Spending time with friends and having a funny moment captured by another friend (Me looking at C, looking at P, with M laughing...)....

Hope your September has been filled with smiles and surprises too!

SJ and Steve's New Place

A few weeks ago, my good friends SJ and Steve moved into a lovely rustic Victorian house.

They have quickly settled in and have plans to fix it up (like covering up the red backsplash for starters). I think Max loves the *new* home as it is already. ;)

Goodies From Finland

My good friend Jen just came back from Helsinki, and naturally, I asked her for licorice and chocolate combo candies (my favourite!).

She knows me so well that she included lovely Moomin and Haribo gummies as well......yum!!

Many thanks to Jen, I'll be enjoying these sweets for quite a while.
One day, I would love to visit Finland, and ride a Jopo! (*Hello, Polly!*) ;)
