A Photo Of My Feelings

A Photo Of My Feelings

Aug 19, 2014

I spied this scene while out walking with my family on Sunday evening. I would not have even noticed if my daughter hadn’t asked for a water break. So, we stopped underneath  two Holly trees that create an arbor over the sidewalk. As the kids drank water in their peckish and slow way, I looked […]

The moment I knew photography was my passion

Feb 13, 2012

This is the story of how I discovered my passion of photography. It starts, however, with a boy. We were going to get married, that was the decision. He knew we were meant to be together forever. Then, like the practical girl that I was, I explained to the boy that we had to get […]

I can do better

Aug 31, 2011

My son’s new favorite song starts out like this, “You can do better, You can do better, You can be the Greatest Man in the World…”  We’ve been listening to it a lot lately. I’m not sure that his 5-year-old self can relate to the catchy tune’s lyrics, but it is really fun. The other […]

Welcomed Relaxation

Jul 1, 2011

For the last week, our family has traveled by plane to a Florida Beach wedding and then a long anticipated visit to rural Arkansas to meet Great Grandparents. Each place another world from the one we call home in Seattle. Our first time flying with both kids, the longest trip as a couple, the new […]

What I learned from the World Domination Summit

Jun 8, 2011

On Saturday, I sat in the warmth of sunshine while admiring sculpture and reflecting on what I’d just heard during the opening talks of the World Domination Summit. I was outside the Portland Art Museum, and a security guard approached my husband, Casey, and I. He wanted to know what the event was about. He […]

Growing Pains: I need your help!

Jun 2, 2011

Last September, I had no idea that I would finally find a solution to my baby’s constipation and embark on a new passion: finding healing through nourishing food. As chance would have it the previous 9 months had laid the ground work for me to be open to making changes to how we eat, and […]

How To Start Cooking From Scratch

May 29, 2011

Do you want to start cooking from scratch?  Cool! I am cheering for you right now. I probably don’t need to tell you how much more nutritious your meals will be for you. I do want to let you know what you’re getting yourself into, what I’ve found myself struggling with, how I’ve adjusted and […]

Turning Discouragement into Inspiration

May 11, 2011

It has been one of those weeks where I feel like I’m just out of my groove. I think stuff just kept piling up without leaving me room to breathe and it all collided with a simple cold for everyone in the house. Nothing to call the doctor over, but enough to make everyone cranky. […]

Lessons from my road trip to rural Oregon.

May 2, 2011

I felt like I walked into another world full of sunshine, warmth and simple beauty. I was forced to slow down. I was in a rural Oregon town to visit my Mom and family for a quick Easter weekend. While I only had a full day to visit, I savored every slow hour. The drive […]

From There To Here

Mar 2, 2011

For three days I did not leave the house. Our Little Miss was sick and only wanted Mama to hold her. We read dozens of books, Dr. Seuss ones being a favorite – hence the title of this post.  Holding her while she napped, I had plenty of time to think, think, think, think.  Sometimes […]
