I've finally gotten back to reading fiction, and what a great reunion it's been! A book club selected Girl Waits With Gun, by Amy Stewart, and it was the perfect book to reignite my love for a good novel. Without further ado, here are my favorite recent reads.Read More
I think Carkeek Park is one of Seattle's hidden gems. Of course, those who live in the Greenwood area are well acquainted with this special place, but the rest of us have a lot to gain by making a trip there. With lots of paths (and a playground!) to explore, and direct access to the beach and the Sound, it's hard to find a park with more to offer.Read More
From chocolates and macarons to paper goods and bath treats, there is sure to be something here for your sweetheart. Order online and impress your Valentine with your thoughtfulness and planning ahead!Read More
I know there are plenty of Valentine's Day skeptics out there, but I am not one of them! I've always loved Valentine's Day, regardless of whether or I've had a particular "Valentine" to share the day with. Why? Probably because my mom always made it a fun holiday for my sister and me -- or, I should say, makes it a fun holiday! We still get Valentine's gifts from her -- it's one of my favorite times of the year.Read More
Discovery Park is quickly becoming one of my favorite locations. Whether you make it all the way out to the lighthouse or not, this is truly one of the most beautiful places in Seattle. With spacious lawns and lots of paths for adventuring, and amazing views of the Sound and the Cascades, the park has a lot to love.Read More
Oh, 2015. You were a little bittersweet, weren't you? But you certainly delivered on your promise of simplicity. For good and for bad. But we'll get to that.
I love the enthusiasm of looking forward to a new year and a fresh start. It gives us an opportunity to be intentional and refocus, when it's so easy to get caught up in the pace of life the rest of the year. But we shouldn't be so quick to jump in that we don't reflect on the past year -- our important accomplishments (be proud!) and the valuable lessons we learned from the things that didn't go so well.Read More
I don't know how last autumn passed without this day at the pumpkin patch making the blog! This was such a fun session, with all of the elements of fall -- pumpkins, a corn maze, cozy clothes, and tall boots for tromping cheerfully through the mud.Read More
I have several autumn sessions ready to go, but I find myself nostalgic for summer already. After the dreary weather of the last few days, I wish I were running through the sprinkler with these kiddos!Read More
