Today was my sweet Charlie Boy's 1st birthday:) I can't believe how fast this first year has gone! It's amazing how fast they grow in their first year of life. Charlie spent the day on long walks, a trip to the dog park, and eating...

I had the great pleasure of spending some time with Miss Ayla Sunshine and Miss Lainy Grey this weekend. It was the first time the two little muffins had met, but they were fast friends. I spent the day cracking up at these two, the faces and the noises they both make are not only ridiculously cute but hilarious as well! We spent the day at Birch Bay playing in the water and the grass, giggling the whole way;)

Lainy is such a ham! I LOVED IT!

Ayla Sunshine’s little yellow bathing suit was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!

Justin's long time friends John and Ally Owens are in town with their cute as a button daughter Lainy. We had a wonderful morning exploring the market and playing at Greenlake:) We are headed up north for the weekend for fishing and fun but I...

This leg of our trip was truly magical because the scenery was just breathtaking, and then to be able to relate to it as being such a huge part of our heritage, and to share that with my family was really special.

I can't believe Charlie hasn't even been on this earth for a year and he already weighs over 70 pounds! I feel like it was just yesterday when he was sleeping in Justin's lap while I held his little paw between my fingers on our...

It's been an interesting, fun, and stressful couple of weeks. I'm looking to slow it down this weekend and get myself back on track, mentally and physically. So I'm just blogging a picture of me and my family, who I hope to spend some more...

Last week I posted a blog about a wonderful lady I met at a networking event named Kindra Reid. Kindra is a personal trainer who was looking for some new portraits and head shots for her business. We had a wonderful collaboration and ended up...

It's crazy how time seems to fly as you get older.  A year seems like just a few months time to me now. I remember last year at this time we were getting ready to move to Seattle and ordering boxes. In the midst of...
