Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

Take a break from the politics and check out our pumpkins for this year. My girls are all in there 20's and this is one of the things that we still get together and enjoy and have some laughs.
