March Recap Post

March Recap Post

March flew by in a haze of sickness for the first half of the month, and then in the struggle of recovering from it in the second half. Whew. Last weekend we got outside and got some spring work done on the house for the first time since fall, and the fresh spring air felt amazing. The month...

Thinking Back on Summer

Thinking Back on Summer

Yesterday's weather felt like the first kiss of summer was in the air, as I took Shadow to the dog park and ran into two lovely friends and their pups. It was the kind of day where you dropped all post-work plans to take your pup to the park for some sunshine. I've got tomato starts in my pantry -...

Bend, OR on Film

Last August, we went down to Oregon for my family's annual rafting vacation. For this year, H and I wanted to finally make it down to Bend. We'd heard so much about the small, Eastern Oregon town, but never made it down there for a visit. So we rented the sweetest AirBnB and spent a couple days...

February 2016 Recap Post

February 2016 Recap Post

It's sunny outside and I can hardly believe it's March. February is a short month, but it flew by. Probably because we did a lot of work on the house. This year for Lent, we gave up watching TV. It's been hard, but on the other hand, we put the finishing touches on the bathroom, and redid the...

Two Years in Our House

Two Years in Our House

My realtor texted me (and sent the sweetest card) earlier this month to wish use a happy two year "House Anniversary". And today, this week, this month, it is happy. We're finally working on some fun projects (as opposed to things like: a new furnace, 22 feet of sewer line, a hot water heater,...

January Recap Post

For 2016, I'm hoping to do monthly recaps. To see the year in smaller chunks, and to remember what happened. I feel like my life is speeding by, faster and faster, and I'm trying to slow down. I want to remember the highlights of each month as they happen, and since I've given up on having the...

Best of 2015.

Best of 2015.

Oh, 2015. You were a crazy, roller coaster of a year. I spent most of the summer in fear that a couple would call me, saying that their venue was destroyed by the forest fires. But luckily, that never happened! Luckily, we had amazing weather for almost every wedding, and 2015 was a great year. I...

I was hoping to have my best of 2015 post up for you all today, but I completely underestimated the time it would take to narrow down my favorite photos of the year! :/ I'm trying not to get all sad about 2015 being over, because 2016 hasn't started out on the best note. Sick for the first week,...

Hello, 2016. Let’s Do This.

Hello, 2016. Let’s Do This.

I'm endeavoring to make my monthly recaps a thing. They probably won't be my most popular posts, but I want to have some way to look back at life, and see what happened each month. Especially because I often get months behind in blogging weddings, and although I love blogging summer weddings in...

Getting Some Sun & Surf

Getting Some Sun & Surf

Earlier this year, we realized that H had a lot of airline miles just sitting around. So we cashed some of them in and booked a vacation in the Caribbean for the first part of December. With the crazy windstorm that happened in November, adopting our puppy, and renovating the house, an almost week...
