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 […]

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 […]

Here’s part 1 of our family tent camping adventures this Summer. This blog post focuses on the time we spent at the campground/Suttle Lake before venturing off to the Metolius River before heading home. We chose Suttle Lake near Central Oregon based on great reviews from friends who visit the same campsite annually. It did not […]

We had a CRAZY (long, cold, difficult) winter this year. It snowed and iced several times across several months. It seemed like it would never end. This was the beginning of it so, of course we hurried outside to enjoy the beautiful snow in our own backyard. Little did we know it would snow MUCH […]

Since it’s now June, I thought it only appropriate to blog about our cutting down of the Christmas tree from last November. 🙂 Finally playing catch up on more personal photos now that I’m officially on “maternity leave/baby watch” for the summer. This Fall we ventured to a different Christmas tree farm than last year, […]

We went on our first family camping trip back in September 2016 to Clear Lake in Mt. Hood National Forest just East of Portland. It’s in a really beautiful area, but beware, there are TWO Clear Lakes in Oregon. Of course, the pictures I kept looking at of the super clear waters were from the one […]

It was a very cold January day for Dallas, TX. I had just travelled from Portland, OR back to my old stompin’ grounds (Dallas) to document this sweet family’s day. We had only spoken on the phone a hand full of times before meeting each other early that morning.  A little fact about Lorilei is she […]

To round out the time of my family visiting us from Texas last July… we (Daria and her mom effortlessly whipped something up while Brian grilled) made a delicious dinner for us all and we topped it off with s’more by the fire in the backyard. I’m so grateful for this great house we’ve been […]
