Bloom, my pretties. #succulents #aprillove2018Let’s let a new month be a reason to take pictures everyday. You in? #photochallenge #AprilLove2018Love is being willing to look like a clumsy goofball for the friend and coworker who wanted to spend her final day’s celebration by floundering around trampolines! We all know you’re an Olympic gymnast @auntiesarah97! We’ll keep trying @janelle_meyers! Scroll for our video in which I just basically fall a lot. #skyzone #trampoline #CoworkersWhoJumpTogether... #IUsedToBeCool #IHaveBlueMatFear #HelpThis sweet face. She was the perfect patient today during her a very long and complicated surgery to remove a 3-pound fatty tumor that was mingled with layers of muscle. Though she’s my old lady teenager, the docs say her labs look like that of a puppy. Thankful for this sweetness. #My13YearOld #WellBeInTheDogBedIfYouNeedUs #dogchild #aussiechow #coneheadAlways fun with these girls. Happy birthday to my lil adventuring friend, Andrea! I hope it’s a year filled with boundless ski slopes, hiking trails, tent dreams, hot tub soaks, wine & cheese savoring and paddleboard naps. #happybirthdaySWIPE for some pretty greenery 🌵😍>.>.> Spent the afternoon in the sun roaming one of my favorite nurseries and pretending summer is with us. They have a great greenhouse restaurant, but make sure you get there before 3. #highhands #nursery #succulents #plantsGetting in my weekday steps, vitamin D and color fix. #afternoonwalk #theothercoffeebreakThat time when you’re ranting to God about life’s crazy, and how all you want is to get away and feel some ocean air and your friend texts to say the car’s leaving in 20 minutes. #AnsweredPrayer #APrettyClearConnection #SoThankful #BodegaBay #PacificPrescription #Blessed #RoadtripAnd then there was wheat bread - like six loaves of it! So thankful for friends who teach me how to turn wheat berries into flour and then into bread. #baking #breadbaking #wheatbread

On the rainiest day in Porland, Brian, Captain the dog, Maggie and I loaded into the little red truck and drove to Multnomah Falls. The water was falling hard from the sky onto our windshield and we each quietly hoped … Continue reading
We went to Cargo on one of our last day’s in Portland. I’m so glad we made it because it was like a wonderland of color, art and beauty. They had beautiful papel picado, artful statues, beaded chairs, beads of … Continue reading
I’ve heard about the Ace Hotel. All over the place. So we went to drink its Stumptown coffee and take pictures in the photobooth. Yay.
I was entirely charmed by Portland neighborhoods, where houses are old and crafted and the porches are big and welcoming. I could definitely get comfortable in a place where home owners aren’t afraid of bright color combinations, lawn art and … Continue reading
