For Friends

Jan 31, 2012

Today I sat down for a bit and made some presents for my far flung friends. Some are far, far away, like NYC. Some are far away like CA. And some are just far enough to be missed terribly, like Seattle.  Friends,  I am so thankful for you.  And while I’m probably the most terrible […]

Heavenly Pursuits

Jan 27, 2012

I found this quote while perusing a favorite site and it really resonated with me. I can get so bogged down with worry about things I have no control over. I took this photo last fall in Post Falls, ID during a family photo session. The sky seems so big up there, it’s crazy. I […]

This year I decided to buy 2012 Calendars through Pinhole Press, a chic company with an array of fun products. I sent them out as Christmas presents to family, and kept one for myself. I love them! In a world where we’re all about iPhones, computers, digital everything – I love having an actual paper and ink […]

Snow Times Ten

Jan 18, 2012

The snow – it’s here. It’s been away for a long time, but it’s finally returned home. With gusto. We should be neck deep in no time! For the most part, I’m enjoying it from indoors. 🙂

An Unexpected Find

Jan 16, 2012

Since we moved to Spokane,  my elusive white rabbit has been a pair of bamboo captain’s chairs. Back in CA we found them […]

Wannabe Travel Bug

Jan 13, 2012

I’ve got the travel bug like crazy. I know two people that are going to Hawaii in the next three weeks. And I’m SUPER JEALOUS. So, anyways. I took a picture of a globe. And thought I’d share the color palette. xoxo

The start of 2012 has been pretty good. Mainly because I’ve been ruminating on our mid-June departure. And searching for tickets to see the Hoskings.  But we’ve definitely been low on our spending-time-with-awesome-family quota. Today, this will be remedied. Kathy is here until Sunday and I couldn’t be more excited!  I hope you all have […]

Goals for 2012

Jan 1, 2012

The start of a new year is such a magical time. I’m a sucker for a new beginning, and I feel particularly inspired as we enter 2012. Matthew and I are on the cusp of many brand new things, and the excitement to begin is awesome…and overwhelming. 2012 will be about waiting for the right […]
