P.S. – For those of you who read us during your lunch or dinner, we are very flexible.

    We’ve got beautiful brown Spoo eyes at our house & I gave up a long time ago & every morning fix her an extra piece of bacon to go with her scrambled egg!

    Keeli does the exact same thing, except imagine those eyes as beautiful icy blue.
