A moment

Jul 16, 2011

Today was a wickedly long day. A good day, but long. We’re prepping for a lakeside wedding tomorrow afternoon, and I couldn’t be more excited. When we finally finished our prep for the day, I spent a bit of time holding Alisa’s sweet girl Sophia – smelling her head and letting her little cooing noises […]

  Today MR and I celebrate 4 years of marriage.    And I can honestly say: I’ve never been happier.   He’s my musician. He’s my family man. He’s my best friend.  And I’m so in love with him.  Here’s to lifetime of adventure MR! I couldn’t ask for a better husband.

We have the best neighbors ever. Our lovely neighbors have two large cherry trees that hang over into our driveway, and this morning they told us to go for it and pick to our hearts content. Bliss! I’ve got enough to make the season’s first bath of jam, which is a celebration unto itself.

And there’s that random drunk person that crashed our cute couple pictures….both times. Not so grateful for her. Summertime has been lovely, so far. With our first wedding of the summer […]

Growing is Good

Pretty peonies. Summer is slightly delayed up here in WA, but my little garden is growing wonderfully. It makes me so happy to run outdoors and pick our salad greens at dinner…and soon we’ll have mature broccoli and kale to add in the mix. And tomatoes! Oh Summer tomatoes. 🙂 Cilantro & Italian Parsley Rosemary […]
