Happy Monday! Hope you all had a sensational weekend. I captured this shot of UW’s Drumheller Fountain and Mt. Rainier showin’ off last week. <3 On Friday I smiled a ginormous smile when my Facebook page surpassed 1,000 likes. YAY, 1K! 😉 I am constantly aiming to grow my business and that was one milestone I […]

Happy New Year! Being the last day of January, I think that it’s also the last day that I can officially say that without sounding like a weirdo. I will admit, it has taken me a little bit of time to get going and feel motivated this year. I finished 2015 by having knee surgery on […]

(Months before that Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake #Hashtag sketch was produced. I have photographic proof. This is my sister Hailey hashtaggin’ it up […]

Happy humpiest of hump days! Today has turned into Christmas in April for me, holy smokes. I am beyond elated to welcome you to my brand-spankin’, sparkly new website!

Happy New Year! Wow. 2014?! Is it just me or does it seem like everyone was freaking out about Y2K just the other day? (I think I say this every new year.) A lot has happened this past year, and I have a lot to look forward to…I think it’s only fitting to reflect a […]

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I think the only reason Christmas ranks higher is because people celebrate that throughout the month of December, whereas we get just a day for Thanksgiving festivities. It’s the focus on family and quality time that makes this time of year so special to me. In all of […]

Jay got back from his training a few days after Valentine’s Day, so we celebrated over the weekend. We were super bums the first day he was back…I made pancakes from scratch (a yummy secret of mine is to add a bit of vanilla to the batter and use coconut oil to grease the griddle) […]
