Deb Eve rains on the doggy parade!

Oh, gosh, a week of folks gushing about their pets and now it’s my turn. Yes, we have pets, but you won’t find me gushing over them. I don’t dress them up for pictures or parades. (Yes, our town actually held a doggy costume parade last weekend. No, Rufus and I did not attend.) And I don’t sleep with them! Look, I have kids. Not that I gush over them…

Last One Out … or Eve in a Nutshell

Hi, I’m Eve Brown-Waite, the last of the new Debutantes … finally taking the stage. And this is a picture of me building a stage (well, a barn actually). Since you already have that nice one up at the top with me looking all Debutante-y, I thought I should let you see what I really look like. Not glamorous at all! I do own a tiara though, and am thrilled…
