Meet Shelby + Amber!

This dynamic duo will surprise you!

While most older dogs (small ones especially) seem to get a bad rep – you know, being cranky and all – these two are simply too chill for that. I mean, except for the occasional bird daring to invade their yard, these two are quiet and wonderful companions. They keep their barking to a minimal and the snuggles they give? You. cannot. imagine.

“– and we are ready, willing, and more than able to binge with you on that latest Netflix series (especially if you have bones for snacking on and a blanket for us to burrow in). We also happen to believe that two is better than one, and since you have two hands, well… this whole petting thing is gonna work out just fine.”

– Agape Animal Rescue

So let’s meet our furry little companions, shall we?

The Shelbinator. No really, it’s just Shelby

Well, hey there!

I’m Shelby! I’m super sweet. I’m the little sister that is easy going and certainly not shy like my big sister. I love my cuddles with Amber but I also love binge watching Netflix with my human. Preferably with my sister on the other side of your lap of course. I just like to know she’s there.

I think my face says it all in this picture, actually. I’m just waiting to show someone how much fun I am and that I’m such a happy girl. I’d love to live out my days with my best sister and my best human. Would you like that, too?

Oh hey! Here’s my sister!

Hi. I’m Amber.

Hello. How are you?

Hi there. My name is Amber like my sister Shelby told you. She’s a fun one, that girl. I am too but I’m a bit more shy than her. I think we make a great duo, you know? A yin and yang thing. I’m a little bit older than Shelby, a good 3 years if I’m not mistaken. (I don’t always get these human years of yours)

Now, a little surprise about me. I’m shy and all that, but just watch me when I get really happy. My Agape humans tell me that I burst with playfulness (especially with my favorite toys) and that it’s the funniest thing you’ll see! So I guess I’ll take their word for it! You’ll just have to come see it for yourself.

Well, thanks for meeting us! We hope you get the chance to talk to our Agape humans to see about taking us home. We love you already!

Aren’t these two adorable?!

SPOTLIGHT: Patch Foundry

Spotlight time!

Today’s spotlight?

P A T C H + F O U N D R Y

Boutique music patches crafted in Nashville, TN. 

Okay… I know pretty much every person that reads my blog is NOT a tech person, is probably not a musician (and even if you were you STILL probably would not understand this) but could you PLEASE take 5 seconds and see this website?!



This is my husband’s website but Im just SO PROUD of him that I really wanted to showcase it. He just released a new product and we’re SO excited.

Back up…

What does he do?

Well he is a patch designer. In layman’s terms, he designs sounds for keyboards + synths that are programable via computer and make incredible sounds on stage, in sessions, production work, etc. Even I don’t fully understand it but that’s about all you need to know. He makes a sound, you can download it and use it on your piece of gear.

He just redesigned his website from the ground up and its spectacular! He has worked on this for months and months and moooonnnths.

So please take a look (CLICK HERE) or if you know someone in the music industry, share it with them! 😉

Thank you, Lovelies! ❤


I may be little but I am… LOVEABLE! Belly rub anyone?

Well, hello. My name is Cassandra but those around me call me Cassie. I suppose that name suits me well enough, don’t you? Here’s a fun tip about my name:

In Greek mythology, Cassandra was the daughter of King Priam and Queen Hecuba of Troy. She had the gift of prophecy but the curse that her prophecies would never be believed.

So seeing as I have the gift of prophecy (lol)… I “prophesy” that I will be adopted by someone awesome because I’m also awesome, too! Here’s a little bit about me:

SPOTLIGHT: My Fave 5 Coffee Shops (Nashville, TN)

The more I have been blogging, the more I have ventured out of my house and sought the comfort of a cozy Nashville coffeehouse (and let’s be honest… it also allows me to be with other humans beside my 2-year-old and fur babies)

I have many that I like but here are my top 5 favorites!

Story #3: Keep Drama To Yo-Self


I played a gig in Mississippi a few weeks ago with an amazing cover band called Downtown Band. We showed up to the gig and started unloading as usual when someone realized that the trombone player Eric was gone. We figured he was in the bathroom, and kept setting up.

Spotlight: Footjunkie by Stage Tech Solutions

Happy Saturday!

Today is a spotlight blog! I want to introduce a product that one of my friends has created, that I think is simply brilliant. I love it when someone invents something, whether big or small, and has the guts to build something with it. Bravo to you, Jonathan!

So, What is the Product?

Footjunkie is currently a sustain pedal stabilizer, something that has been needed for quite a long time. Whether you’re at a show and you slide your pedal right off the stage (haha – yeah that’s definitely happened. Can you imagine? Whoops) or you’re working in your studio – laying down tracks, you really don’t need the distraction much less the hassle of endlessly adjusting your pedal. Time is precious for a musician. Uninterrupted creative thought is even more precious. Don’t waste it on something so ridiculous.

It solves a problem that has been a curse of keyboardists since the sustain pedal broke away from the original piano. – Eric Barfield

Below is a video of my husband, Eric Barfield (professional keyboardist & touring musician here in Nashville) giving a review of the pedal stabilizer. You can find the original video, along with a lot of other reviews + info regarding the product, at

 Please check out the product pictures below (click on them for a bigger picture), and give this company a ♥ on Instagram (@stagetechsolutions) & on Facebook (Footjunkie)

PS: I’ve never asked for this before, but if you feel inclined to it, would you be willing to help my friend out by spreading the word? Especially if you’re a musician or know one… Share on FB or Instagram or even my blog post. Whatever works best for you. I know those at Stage Tech Solutions would appreciate it 😉

Thanks, lovelies!
