What a week. I took this picture on Saturday as I few over the Nevada desert. 10 years have passed since my last visit to this state, and so much has changed. It wasn't a trip I had expected to take so soon, but I am glad that I was... Continue reading

I saw this on pinterest a couple weeks ago, and I was like "yes!", so getting shit done is what I am doing. But even before I saw this, I knew that I needed to change my plans with school, and get it done. If I've spoken to any of... Continue reading

These past couple of weeks have been consumed by work and school. Thankfully, my spring semester is nearing its end, and I'll have a couple weeks off to play before summer semester starts. And speaking of summer...two weekends ago we experienced two whole days of summer-like weather! We ate outside!... Continue reading

I love this Camellia tree. It's taller than our house! and it's blooming like crazy right now. It puts a smile on my face everytime I look out the window. Happy Spring! Continue reading

This is me over three and a half years ago on a vacaction with my family to Florida. It was the summer of 2008. I think about it a lot, especially when I've had a rough week, because it was the last time I remember feeling like myself. Not long... Continue reading

Well isn't that the goddamn truth! This past week has been a little intense. I finshed a portion of my group project for web design, and it really did seem like an impossible task. But then again college as a whole seems like an impossible task. But we get it... Continue reading

Two years ago today, David and I adopted Miss Olive. Sometimes she is so sweet, and other times...well, i'll just leave it at that. Happy homecoming Olive! Continue reading

Working in an archive, I'm always helping people with their genealogy. It's one of my favorite things to do! I only wish I had time to work on my own. Way back in the spring of 2011, before I went back to school in the summer, I started archiving and... Continue reading

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope you had a good weekend. On Saturday I went with my mother-in-law to her riding club to take some photographs. This particular horse was very curious. Continue reading

Maybe it's the weather that is getting to me, but recently I've had the itch to travel. Unfortunately, being a graduate student makes travelling nearly impossible. So for now, I dream. One place that I've been thinking about a lot is San Francisco. When I graduated from high school in... Continue reading

Hey look! a cute picture of my cat. It's all i've got. These past couple of weeks have been a bit of a blur. Stress, illness, car trouble, i've had/have it all. But I'm still here chugging along. This past Saturday I went to the SAM with my aunt to... Continue reading

Here is a little something to ponder before the weekend. I'm hoping to take a day trip up to Seattle this Saturday to visit my aunt and go to the Kenwood House exhibit at SAM, but a cold might be lurking around the corner, waiting to take me down. Hopefully... Continue reading

Have you ever been to Aberdeen? It's kind of a sad little place. David and I decided to go there on a whim this past Sunday because its such a short drive from Olympia, and...we didn't really have anything else to do. For those who are fans of (more like,... Continue reading

So you know what I realized recently? David and I haven't had a picture taken together since our wedding! Over a year ago! Unacceptable. In an attempt to remedy this lack of documentation, I'm going to try to take portraits of us every month. We'll see how it goes! Continue reading

This past Saturday, David and I joined some friends for a day of clamming! Honestly, I thought I would hate it, and my only reason for going was to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. But hey! I really liked it! Which is why the pictures end near the beginning... Continue reading

Exciting things are happening! and February just got real. Following our long month and a half break, David and I are slowing getting back into work and school mode. This season David is working some crazy hours (I can't even keep track), and I am starting a month long position... Continue reading
