why I don't want to leave the house today...

Puppydog eyes and yummy foamy lattes make me want to stay home and stay warm!
When Grace woke up this morning, she ran out into the living room & leapt on my lap & gave me the exact look you see below. She then curled up in a ball, with her head curled on my arm. I tells ya, how does a girl hope to achieve anything in a day with a warm puppy on her lap?!
To make matters worse, I made the prettiest of all lattes right before Grace joined me. So, not only was there puppy cuteness, there was foamy honey-topped latte goodness!
It's a good day. The sun is shining, the snow is glistening, and this girl is warm & fuzzy.

Grace face - hard to deny those eyes. heart latte - foamy goodness with honey on top! heart latte - foamy goodness with honey on top!

{had to do it : an animated gif of Grace face!}

I hope you find warmth & sweetness today, too, my dear chickadees!
with joy,
Caren & Grace
