Today is another archive post – I found this video on my hard drive and I wanted to share it. This was the end of summer 2017. This is the reality of moving! Stuff everywhere and our cute decorations are coming off the wall. Chris came up with this idea in Toronto years ago when…
I am cleaning out my hard drive and finding old videos that I never edited or posted here on YouTube. One is this video of the first muzzle we tried with James. We knew we would need a muzzle for James when we moved to Europe. Some countries require it on public transportation (Austria and…
In the US, James has his own bed on the floor next to our bed. But while we are traveling in Europe, we can’t exactly tote around a big dog bed! Instead, we have a blanket we bring and we put that on top of the foot of the bed and James gets to sleep…
I always enjoy reading biographies and memoirs. I don’t know much about Suzanne Somers because I think she spoke more to the Boomer generation. But this was a fun read. It is interesting to see what
I really enjoy trying new foreign beauty products. I spotted this Lebon Rose Orange Blossom and Mint toothpaste the other day and I decided to try it! It is actually really nice!
Our balcony in Padova, Italy gets wonderful sunshine! James and I have been going outside almost every day to soak up the sun.
This little fuzzy guy decided to join us. I love taking macro photos
The news that Kate Spade commuted suicide is just awful. I don’t know Kate. But I wonder what was going on in her mind. I imagine she was lonely or depressed or unhappy.

Years ago, we had Nextel phones with the walkie-talkie feature. All of our friends had Nextel and it was a great way to have quick chats. I was a little sad to see it go, but we all moved on to phones
It is so beautiful here in Lido di Venezia, Italy. We took some nice posed photos of all of us – finally!

Chris and James:
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
We really love our Airbnb in Venice, Italy! We are actually out on Lido di Venezia. Being Floridians, we were missing the beach and we weren’t sure we wanted to be in the heart of Venice. The motoscafi
The More of Less – Book by Joshua Becker
I wouldn’t consider myself a minimalist. But I have owned and moved WAY too much stuff in my life. And more recently, I have downsized – twice.
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!
Did you get a chance to see Animal Planet’s 2018 Puppy Bowl?
James has his very own Puppy Bowl trading card for 2018. Since James isn’t a puppy, he is officially part of the Dog Bowl. James can
When we decided to move to Europe, we knew we would need a muzzle for our Standard Poodle James. We had been to Europe before and seen dogs on the streets with muzzles attached to their leashes or collars.
Italians have a reputation for being chaotic drivers, from Hollywood to Rick Steves’ tours we hear about the traffic in Italy. But we discovered something interesting about Italy and now Italians
Wheeling around a large suitcase is a pain, especially when you get somewhere only to find that all of your things have settled and there is plenty of empty space that somehow wasn’t there when you
A few weeks ago you may remember the funny story we told you about our silly restaurant idea. The restaurant called “You”? (All About You) Well this story continyoues with more things that are named
One of our travel tips for sleeping in new places is to get a noise app. When we first arrived in Vienna, Austria our apartment was SO quiet. Too quiet! It was actually hard for us to sleep because
The other day I was finishing off the last of a small bag of chips for lunch and happened to come across a chip with an oddly familiar shape. I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to show it along side the
