Amish country offers peace to the soul...  From it's vast fields of green trees and plenteous crop...

To the secluded chalet where we hang our hats at the end of a day of exploring and shopping...

Peace surrounds us.

 Our walks offer nature at its best.

Perfect!  Except for one thing.  We miss our DOG!!!

And speaking of DOG.  Allow me to share some throwbacks from our DOG.

Gracie.  The best Christmas present ever.  She turned 14 last month!  FOURTEEN!  No matter how you say it, that is getting old in dog years.  What will I ever do without her!!!???

So while in Amish country, we ran across this cutie...

A Gracie look-alike!!  I know, right?!

So I texted Gracie and asked, "Shall we bring her home with us?"

She texted me back.

There is no room in this house for a wild, crazy, hungry, energetic, goofy poop dropper, nor is there room in the bed.  Abort that idea.  Gracie.


  1. Well, Gracie is right! She needs to remain queen of the house! I love these old pictures. What an adorable place you stayed in!!

  2. So pretty in Amish country! Gracie was wise with her text. You got the best dog in her. Why spoil it with adding another one to the mix right now. Just enjoy her!


  3. Laughing out loud at Gracie's reply. Sure was an adorable pup though.

  4. Oh Gracie, that's funny:) Looks like a beautiful place to visit. Have a beautiful day dear friend, HUGS!

  5. Amish country is lovely, so glad you got to relax. That puppy is too much, looks just like Gracie did. But she's right, getting too old for a puppy, I know just how she feels.

  6. agree with gracie about the new pup cute as she may be. let gracie live out her life as the queenbee.


  7. Hello there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group? There's a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Thanks
