Daisy - The Real Life Cat-Dog

Meet Daisy - the real life cat-dog. Daisy could not be a more perfect (purrrfect!!) cat for me. I got her during one of the most lowest of low times in my life and she was just what I needed! In the three years that I've had her she has proven to be more of a dog than a cat. Every day when myself or my husband gets home from work, she wants to be let outside. She loves exploring the outsides. Of course, she loves trees and birds - just like any other cat - but she loves being outdoors. She begs at the door and paws at the door to be let outside. Daisy also loves to follow us around the house. She wants to be where we are. If we are watching T.V., she is handing with us in the living room. If we are cooking, then she is just chillin' no the kitchen floor awaiting the food preparation. She begs at the table just like a dog when we sit down to eat. To much of hubby's dismay, I do give her bits of food. I have found that she likes salty food. She loves bacon, but doesn&

Setting the Stage....Unapologetically Me

Anyone that knows me will attest to the fact that I tend to live my life "without a filter". While there are times that filters are needed, I don't plan to have much of a filter here. I will be unapologetically me here.

(I apologize in advance if I offend anyway. That is never my intent. Please know, I never go out of my way to be politically incorrect. - It just sort of happens.) With that being said, I don't want to come across as a harsh person either - because that's not me. I say what's on my mind, even when I shouldn't. I don't have tact half the time and I don't have what the hubby would call  nuance. However, those closest to me - my Ma and my hubb

Lattes with Grace Begins...

I'm sitting here on my couch on a Sunday evening. Hubby and I just finished a relaxing weekend at the Lake. (The most obvious place to vacation in Georgia.) My life is about to be the craziest it has been, so why am I deciding to start a blog? Great question! My husband swears is won't last past the end of the month, but it will - if only to prove him wrong . I've always loved documenting my life, but have never really found the right fit for me. In this world of social media: Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram and whatever else I have left out - and oh, yeah, Youtube ( vlogging obviously! ) - the options of "scrap booking" span far beyond paper and glue. I'm not sure what I will write about, but I've been thinking about starting a blog for about two years now. I won't share everything (obviously) because once you put something out there you can never take it back - a lesson I'm sure many have learned the hard way. I'll make mistakes I&
