So Many Invitations...Not Enough Time



Did you ever notice that you can go for a string of weekends without any invitations to events, then you get multiple ones for the same day around the same time? That's what happened to us this past Saturday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SARAH - Our friend Sarah was celebrating her birthday, and she's been braving a battle against cancer, so we went to celebrate with her and her husband.
Sarah is the most loving, optimistic, determined person ever, and radiates love. Even battling for her health she maintained smiles, hugs, and love for everyone. Sarah and her friend Dona (whom we had never met until Saturday) had spent days last summer baking and making elegant cupcakes for our wedding reception. The cupcakes were such a hit that we only had one left after the guests departed! We also share a deep love for our canine children. We are so proud of Sarah in her determination and we ask you to keep her in your prayers.
One of her friends hosted the event and it was wonderful. The house was situated on the Severn River and had a beautiful view into the Chesapeake Bay. There was also a hammock there, that Tom couldn't resist!


GRADUATION EVENTS - The events that we were unable to attend (both in different towns), but were there in spirit were for our friends Sadie (graduating from college) and Phil (graduating from high school). We are very proud of both of them and they've both got a great life and career ahead of them.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
