Love love love Valentine's Day

This week, I'll keep it short but as I do every year, I can't help but tell you how much I love Valentine's Day. I get caught up in all of it ....... as for my husband, not so much but at least he puts in the effort to make me happy. I hope you enjoy the pics as much as I had taking them. Happy Valentine's Day!!! Fleur 2 Tracey Ayton Photography

The house was much too quiet after Griffon was gone .......

May I introduce to you: FRANCESCA ~ a.k.a. "FRANKIE"

You can see our sweet boy "GRIFFON"  in the latest issue of Style At Home.  He was the life of the party and will forever be missed by everyone that met him.

We had a bout of sunshine here in Vancouver over the weekend and I heard we are in for a smidge more.  The little white flowers in my garden called snow drops are a sure sign that spring is in the air.  Dare I say snow??  But every year when I see these little flowers that drop their heads so gently I can't help but get excited.  In celebration, I decided to make some cookies that share the same name.  When the sun shines like it did yesterday, I can almost taste spring and forget about snow.  Here's my Snowdrop cookie recipe.  My apologies it's not gluten free but I'm sure for those that would like to make it gluten free, the recipe is pretty simple to substitute.  ~ ENJOY Tracey Ayton spoon
