I am past the boot-wearing phase. Now that we've had some warmer days, I've broken out the sandals and I can't go back, so if you see me out and about on a rainy, 50 degree day wearing my flip flops you now know why. I just can't. But summer is just around the corner, … Continue reading Life Lately :: How Is It Already May?!
After much planning and hard work, the office is finally done! What kickstarted this project was the fact that James was going to start working from home more. I wanted him to be able to have a space that was creative and more on the masculine side. First off, we painted all the walls a … Continue reading The Office is Finished!
It has been a long time since I've written a personal post! This summer we made another trip up to Lopez Island in the San Juan's. However, this time we got to take Olive! Ever since we were dating James talked about how he couldn't wait to bring our kids up here to experience what … Continue reading Olive + Lopez
At the beginning of the year, I had no idea what direction our life was going to go. The only thing we knew was going to happen was our European cruise but other than that, all was up in the air.

Do you ever hear or see something that struck you so deeply on the inside you couldn't get it out of your head for days after? A concept so fervent it protrudes your current way of thinking and forces you re-examine your life, how you live it, and how you can make it mean more? … Continue reading I Can’t Get It Out of My Mind
If anyone ever asked me to give them advice about life in general (you'd be surprised how often this happens...), I would tell them to find friends that you love to travel with. These are very special friendships because you couldn't spend a weekend or longer with just any friend, they have to be special. … Continue reading Our Weekend In Bend
When my husband and I first got married, we made a list of all the things we wanted to do before we started popping out babies. The biggest thing we had was take a European cruise, and guess what? It's really happening!! And not only is it really happening but it's all paid for! James and … Continue reading It’s Really Happening
Everyone has their "thing". The thing they could talk about non-stop, spend endless amounts of money on, and feel the urge to show anyone who walks through the door.
