  This ad, featuring our favorite smooshy faced pooch, is a billboard by The Shelter Pet Project, a wonderful initiative founded by the Humane Society of the United States, Maddie's Fund, & the Ad Council  to encourage potential pet owners to adopt from shelters. 

This is Bandit the pug, an adoption success story :)

The Biltmore Wine Experience Part 1: Wine Finds

    Back in June, we mentioned a little honor of which we are quite proud: Meagan being chosen as the design winner of the 2011 Biltmore Christmas Wine Label. After months of anticipation, we have finally been able to see this label in all its glory. It seems like everywhere we look it keeps popping up! Our first encounter was at our local wine superstore: Total Wine (from whom we ended up purchasing three cases!). Next, we found it at our local grocery store: Harris Teeter. From there it spiraled out of control showing up at Ingles, Target, World Market and of course Biltmore itself. 

   One of the biggest surprises was that the label actually mentions Meagan on the back and displays her quote she created for the contest:

Like Biltmore, this label inspires magical memories

of Christmases past, present, and the wonder of those to come.

   Being a small husband and wife team, we are so extremely proud to have Meagan's work featured on a bottle that is sold all over the country. Her skill and artistic work are showcased beautifully and we are so happy that she won the contest!

 Here is the finished product as seen on this year's Christmas at Biltmore wine!

   Through a bit of serendipity, we came across this Wine blog on Biltmore's Facebook page which gives a nice overview of the taste and aromas of the wine itself while subjecting it to the critique of a wine enthusiast. Click to read the blog and find out what he thought! (hint: it isn't bad!) He also mentions Meagan, yay!
