Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July, dear friends.  We've enjoyed our weekend which was filled with gorgeous weather and lots of fun.

My two hooligans are happy that this holiday is almost over.
Fireworks are definitely not one of their favorite things.

Stay safe.

Until next time...

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. Have a wonderful 4th of July, Katie.

    Our sweet Belle has been shaking all weekend. Just imagine how many people will lose their dogs today. Fireworks scare them to death and they run like the wind. :)

  2. Happy 4th to you all! Your pups are adorable! Maddy wants to know where you got their festive bandannas?? Our Scottie is running from room to room to find a table to hide under -- definitely bringing out the doggie valium for later! Have a safe 4th!

  3. Hope you have a great 4th of July too!

  4. Happy 4th of July! We have had a rainy weekend but lots of fun anyway! Have a great night!

  5. Happy 4th of July dear Katie! The house looks beautiful! Hope we can meet up soon! xoxo, Dawn

  6. So pretty - hope your 4th was wonderful!

  7. Happy belated 4th. Your home and dogs look festive!

  8. Sorry I missed this yesterday...had a wonderful 4th with my family, just one town away. Lots of fireworks, not fun for the dogs. Your two hooligans look fabulous in their festive bandanas.

  9. Your hooligans are adorable! If I'm MIA for a bit it's because I'm in the land of Limited Internet but promise to check in whenever I can!


Tuckernuck for Spring!
