The home you love is where you want to be and, when you go away, the place you long to return to.

And for many of us, the calm, patient, beating heart of our home has four paws.

These are the cats and dogs who greet you at the door and snuggle with you on the couch. They want you to remember that home is the best getaway. Sit with them in your favorite chair and (unless they object) rub their ears. And when you need a quick break from a busy day, take a deep breath and remember these peaceful, beautiful moments at home.

On the Single Frame blog, we’re spellbound by calm, peaceful pursuits at home; everyday beauty; quiet “home away from home” spots; books; and the pets who make a house a home.

Our photo sessions allow you to bookmark a moment in time with your beloved pet. It’s one way to find contentment in the peaceful everyday beauty of your home.

“I love cats because I love my home and after a while they become its visible soul.”
Jean Cocteau
