When Life Gives You Lemons...

Monday, March 27, 2017

...you make a cake:) Yes, I mean literally! This beauty you're looking at above, is our first (ever!) home-grown lemon! It might have taken a year for it to actually fully ripe, but it was worth the wait! So now I'm off to make a lemon cake, brew myself a fresh cup of coffee and just for a short minute, gloat in my lemon-growing-glory:)

Ah, the little things in life...

P.S: This is how it looked about nine months ago.
P.P.S: Sunshine in a pot.

Dog People Wanted

Thursday, March 23, 2017

Are you a dog person? If so, what's your favourite dog breed?

Balazs and I are considering getting a puppy later this year, but we're not totally sure what kind would be best for us. We are thinking between an English Cocker Spaniel and a Golden Retriever, but we also love the idea of owning our own little sausage dog:) Aren't they full of personality? Plus, just recently, a friend sent me this teddy-bear-like photo of a Goldendoodle that stole my heart!

Anyway, I'd love to hear what's your experience with different dog breeds. Our aim is to have a friendly, calm yet playful buddy that we can take everywhere we go.

Do share...

P.S: Fancy more?
P.P.S: Giggle!
