This book reminded me of so many friends who have adopted their dogs or volunteer with humane societies and rescue groups.

Almost five years ago, in front of this enormous fireplace we promised our lives to each other :)
I remember when we were at the lodge planning our wedding they were setting up for another wedding. They were covering the great room with a zillion yards of tulle draped from white columns. A fabric covered board was inserted in front of the Lewis & Clark painting above the fireplace. They even wanted the tapestries taken down (the lodge refused.) I couldn't help but wonder why choose the lodge if you want to change everything about it.
We loved the look and feel for our wedding day. Gratuitous wedding picture ahead :)
Back into town. It is always such a pretty drive I hate to see it end. However, I love this view of the bluffs, trains, flour mill and river coming together always makes the end of the river road drive a little easier.
Slow Cooker Indian Spiced Lentils.
My niece is a big fan of Indian food - it is kind of our thing to meet for lunch at the local Indian place. We have talked about trying to create more of it at home. Since I am a recent convert to lentils and I am trying to use my slow cooker more this recipe seemed to be a perfect fit.
Sometimes, I still can't believe...I eat lentils. I had such bad experiences with them when I was younger I thought I would hate them forever.
I found another crock pot Indian recipe that I will be trying soon. It has potato dumplings in it. It sounds a little more labor intensive before the crock pot phase, but some days I don't mind that.
