May & June Recap Post

May & June Recap Post

I got taken out by a late spring cold in early June, and I just haven't been able to catch up. Life is completely bonkers right now, but as my blogging backlog just grows and grows, I know I need to try and catch up a little bit! It's funny to look at this photo first photo, because it's so dang...

April Recap Post

April Recap Post

I'm looking back at April, and I don't feel like I took many photos, because the whole month felt long. And it seems, a month when my girl changed a lot. The last few months have been pretty rough on me, I've been dealing with some things behind the scenes and I think I'm going to take a while to...

March Recap – Prague with Kids

March Recap – Prague with Kids

Slowly but surely, I'm catching up on blogging and recaps. I feel like March just happened, but I blinked and now it's May. Aaaah, Bloomsday is this weekend, and we missed it last year because we were in Germany, so I'm excited to have family in town for it and take our girl to watch it. She's...

February Recap Post

February Recap Post

Okay, I know I'm way behind on these, but combining two months makes these posts ridiculously long and then I get overwhelmed by all the stuff that has happened. Maybe this is the month when I catch up?! A slacking blogger can dream. So, February. We went to Hawaii. The weather was bonkers, Maui...

January Recap Post

January Recap Post

Oh my gosh, January feels like it was FOREVER ago. I think it's because the weather was decent in January, and then got to be so nasty in February. I feel like January was last fall, instead of just two months ago. Real talk: I was going to lump January and February together, but then I started...

October, November, AND December Recap

October, November, AND December Recap

Oh hi. When I fell off the blogging bandwagon, I'd try to start back up, and then I'd get overwhelmed, or the baby would wake up, and I'd just...put it off for the next day. My backlog is SO crazy, but I think I should start small, and maybe it'll be easier with a few behind the scenes photos?...

My Favorite Eastern Washington Wedding Venues

My Favorite Eastern Washington Wedding Venues

When you're planning a wedding in a more rural area - basically any area that isn't a major city center - it's hard to find information on venues and vendors online. You'll find listings for vendors in major cities - I'm looking at you Seattle-Tacoma-Olympia - on national websites, but it's hard...

September Recap Post

September Recap Post

Hey all! It's October, it's raining today, and I'm working on a million things, but I needed to get this post up today. We're back to a lot fewer photos...not that September wasn't a crazy, beautiful month, but little miss has gotten quite adept with messing with my phone, so I'm doing my best to...

Doing a Frivolous Job when the World is on Fire

Happiness can be found even in the darkest of times if one only remembers to turn on the light. -- Albus Dumbledore [JK Rowling] This week, I've really been struggling with doing what I do.

Neuschwanstein, Schwangau, and Bavaria on Film

I've been traveling to Germany for the past decade, and this was I think my 10th trip? I tried to count them up, but I can't remember how many times I hopped across the border while studying in Prague. It's like asking me to count how many times I've been to Portland. We've been to Munich a half a...
