Yep.. my second son is now days away from turning TWO and I’m just now writing his birth story.  No judging, please.  When we were originally told his estimated due date, (7/7/17) my husband was really holding out for a 4th of July baby. I just laughed, because our first son was born 2 weeks […]

It’s hard to narrow it down, but here’s some of my favorite safer / better beauty products that I’ve been using the last couple of Summers. I don’t prefer to wear a lot of face makeup so these items help prevent sun damage, sooth my skin once I’ve been out in the sun, and give […]

Doing your own kid’s newborn portraits is quite far from “easy”.  What you don’t see is the bucket of sweat from me, and the thousands of breaks we took to soothe baby Noah, who was a literal angel until it was time to do these portraits and he was not a happy camper at the […]

The summer we first moved up to Oregon (and I turned 30) we rented this adorable “small home” in a gorgeous hidden gem neighborhood in Lincoln City for a couple nights. It was the perfect size. Then, we grew (added a busy baby who was on the move crawling + our once small toddler was […]

How was this a year ago?? The blooms around Portland in the Spring are straight out of a fairy tale. It’s unbelievable. I am so grateful to live in a place with actual four seasons (for the most part).  It’s truly like we earned it and are being rewarded with beauty for coming out of […]

Last night we had our first Little League practice of the season. Brady has been SO excited for the season to start. This was the first year we didn’t do a Fall sport, but it was so nice since he was starting Kindergarten to allow for that adjustment/transition instead of cramming out schedule FULL of […]

It was a gorgeous (windy), sunny day at Suttle Lake last Summer on our family tent camping adventure in Central Oregon.  You can view more about our family tent camping adventures here and here.   We went out for a family hike/walk along the trail that hugs Suttle Lake and I couldn’t resist drone-ing.  We couldn’t […]

We were so grateful to have Granny P and Grandpa Clif (Brian’s dad) visit us from Dallas about 2 months after Noah was born (late Summer/August 2017). Yes, that long ago – hah. I’m playing catch up on life blogging.  We did a few Portland-y things while they were here, like visit the downtown waterfront […]
