August 2016

August 6 ~ National Mustard Day

Started in 1991 by the 

National Mustard Museum in Mount Horeb, WI,

National Mustard Day has become an 

annual event the first Saturday in August.

Mustard, an important ingredient in many recipes,

is essential on my hamburgers, hot dogs, or sandwiches.

What about you?  Are you a fan of mustard?

"Chance made us sisters.  Hearts made us friends."

August 7 ~  Sisters' Day

The first Sunday in August is designated as Sisters' Day.

Lucky me!  

I have a sister, and we have always been good friends.

Less than two years apart in age, 

we shared a room, did chores together,

and like all young girls, shared secrets and dreams.

As adults, we continue to share special times together.

As Mary Engelbreit says, "There's no friend like a sister."

Yes, I'm a lucky girl!

August 26 ~ National Dog Day

A day to celebrate all dogs everywhere.

Started in 2004, it is a day to bring attention to

the many dogs who need to be adopted.

We adopted our sweet Sadie Mercedes four years ago.

Thank you Wee Rescue!

We are so grateful to have this girl in our lives.

August is also a big month of celebration here.

Happy Birthday to the chef, and Happy Anniversary to us.

Extremely grateful to travel the 

road of life with this guy by my side!
