Beach Life on Lido di Venezia, Italy
posted by: Sandra • in At Home
Oh we are LOVING the beach! It is cold and winter but we still love it. James REALLY loves it. When James was a puppy, we rented a beach house for a month in St. Augustine Beach, Florida (check out the old posts from that month here and here). James would play fetch on the beach every. single. day. And now 8 years later he still starts to dance when he sees a beach. He knows that beaches mean fetch time!

Our Apartment in Venice, Italy

Chris is working hard and James is napping hard: James really likes the cool terrazzo floors.

Heart Sponge for Washing Dishes
posted by: Sandra • in At Home
I prefer washing dishes by hand as opposed to using a dishwasher. Here in Europe, a lot of apartments don't even have dishwashers. But we've actually rented a few that did have dishwashers! I have been buying 3-packs of sponges every few weeks and using those for washing dishes. Right around Valentine's Day, I decided I wanted some heart sponges to wash dishes with. I don't even know how I came up with this idea - where was I going to find such a specific item? I think we must have walked
