We can find things that inspires us all throughout the day.  A walk through the neighborhood, choosing your outfit for the day, even cooking your meals.

Its the “art of living”

Bugsy is my little man.  I adopted this little bug when he was only 8 weeks old and he had my heart from the first minute.

My friend Jessica from SilhouPette has made it possible for me to carry this little guy close to my heart all day long!

Jessica the owner, is a dear friend of mine.  She is an artist, a wife, a mommy to her furry babies, and a light.  She pours her heart into each charm and loves hearing personal stories from pet owners.  The stories are sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and all the time heartfelt.  You can find some of those touching stories on her blog here.

Bugsy just makes me melt.  He is the kindest little creature.  He let me put my charm on him and he modeled for me.  I had to pay him in treats :)
