Happy Easter!

Happy Easter, dear friends.  I hope that your day is filled with all that is good in the world.  

I would also like to wish one of my oldest (for sure), sweetest, funniest, and most of all, bravest friends of mine a very happy day today and the year ahead.

Have a wonderful day to all, especially my two funny bunnies.

Until next time...


I wish I could tell you that this is Chowdah.
He's not this well-behaved.


Again, not Chili.
Same reason.

I'm Katie. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am an empty nester meandering through my middle-aged years while entangled in the never-ending process of renovating an antique home on the South Shore of Massachusetts. I love to write about books, movies, TV, celebrities, decorating, and weekend adventures. My favorite writing material is derived from my family: the Mister, my girls, #1 and #2, and my two untrainable, rambunctious pups, Chowdah and Chili.


  1. Happy Easter to you,too! I always enjoy reading your blog, thanks!

    1. Thank you for your kind words, Maureen. I hope that you have a wonderful Easter.

  3. Happy Easter to you and your family! Those are sweet pictures of your daughters! -Jenn

  4. Happy Easter, Katie! My, what big ears your family have! And all adorable!

  5. Well, no need to put bunny ears on Chow and Chili. They could never wear them as well as your two adorable bunnies. ;-)
    I'm still chuckling about the second Easter shot of the girls. You have to tell me the story behind that one. It's priceless. I trust you have this framed and out for all to see.
    Have a beautiful day with the mister. I hope he isn't having to work.
