Serious Business


1. Big job today - my person is sick. Hard work this Comfort Spaniel stuff.


2. What kind of Mother leaps at the opportunity to take their child's photograph while they are suffering from a migraine? Well a better one, than the one who actually posts it online I guess! Becky looked so thoughtful trying to will my daughter to feel better, I just couldn't resist grabbing my camera.

3. Time and again, dogs demonstrate their ability to empathize. They comfort family and even strangers in need of comfort never expecting much in return. Cavaliers are noted to be especially good at this task and excel as working Therapy Dogs.  


4. Cavaliers have comforted and owned a few celebrities throughout the years:

Ronald Reagan, Jennifer Love Hewitt , Liv Tyler, Diane Sawyer, Courtney Cox and Davic Arquette, Jerry O'Connell, Amanda Byrnes, Mischa Barton, Koda Kumi,  Terri Hatcher, Jon Favreaum Sylvester Stallone, Claire Danes, Jerry O'Connell, Brittany Murphy, Kirk Douglas, Michael J Fox, Emma Bunton, Seth Rogan

5. This is my first try at using a "Film Grain" overlay. Usually you see that technique on black and white photos, but I really like the mood it gives these photos.

Pumpkin Gingersnap Parfait


I love "finding" everything Autumn has in store for me! Rich colours, crisp mornings hazy skies, perfect golden light to capture in a photo and I can not resist what the fall harvests brings in. Those twirling winds scream it's time to "turn over a new leaf".


So in my quest to eat healthier I have been scouring through Pinterest for new fall recipes. I love Pumpkin Pie and this recipe tastes just like the filling! Big bonus here, it also is good for you. Pumpkin Ginger Parfait hosts 100% of your day's requirement for Vitamin A, has 3 grams of fiber, is loaded with potassium, and boasts a good dose of cancer fighting beta-carotene.


What your all waiting for - the recipe!

There is one little problem though. Kodee & Becky are used to me opening a can of pure pumpkin to feed to them! So it was no surprise they where smack at my heels waiting for a taste. Who is going to resist those big, pleading eyes?
