Happy Weekend Pet Talk

HAPPY WEEKEND: THE SUMMER CUT

This week, you may have noticed that we’re experimenting with a new, more organic approach to blogging – something we’ve been wanting to try out for a while, but just didn’t have the guts to, haha. Admittedly, we originally planned on part 2 of the roadside table to go up yesterday, rather than early this morning (we had some last minute family come in out of town to stay with us).
