Elizabeth’s Birthday

Happy birthday to an important member of the Calendars.com team, Elizabeth!

Elizabeth has been with Calendars.com for nearly six years and runs the Facebook page and blog for DogBreedStore.com, our sister site. She also manages the Calendars Ebay store and comparison shopping engines.

I love Calendars, canines, caffeine and my Mac – not necessarily in that order.  I balance work with volunteering, training dogs, gardening and cooking. My favorite travel destination is home, where I am surrounded by ten beautiful acres of wildflowers and two adorable and adoring (mainly at dinner time) Bulldogs who think I am an absurdly good cook.

Here are a few of her staff picks, but see Elizabeth’s complete selection on our Staff Picks Page!
