I’m in Dublin… Sort of…

I have something a little different to share today. I received a tweet from Jane, the voice behind the beautiful blog Ill Seen Ill Said. The tweet had a photograph attached to it and said,"I did a double-take thinking this was you in this Irish ad!!" Now, I've been known to model here and there so I thought it was either going to be a photograph...

Every Sunday from May through October in our lovely little neighborhood, there is a quaint farmer's market that seems to appear out of nowhere. There is live music, fresh herbs and produce, stunning flowers and delicious food. We used to consider it a neighborhood secret...

Our lease isn't up till the end of the month but we already have the keys to our new place which means there is plenty of time for cleaning and painting before moving all of our stuff over. Our new place definitely has it's quirks, but makes up for it in charm and location. And now, a few links we are...

Our First Anniversary & First Giveaway! {Closed}

We have been together for nearly 6 years and while we love surprising one another, we are horrible at it. We always end up giving each other gifts early because we just can't stand the anticipation. This year was different though. We thought it would be fun to stick with the traditional first anniversary gift: paper. Nothing too big (we are saving to move AND for our...

Rain, Woods & a Bright Red VW Bus

This fellow turned out to be Mark Mirocha, a Portland based lifestyle and wedding photographer with some remarkable talent.

‘A portrait of one another, once a week for an entire year’ A few portraits taken around the house where I have been recovering this week. Today marks the 12th day of this awful sickness. I have an autoimmune disease, so when I get sick, I REALLY get sick. My immune system has trouble fighting things off on its own. My cough and sore throat turned into an...

It Wasn’t Just A Dream

I was very inspired by Jasmine's post about the importance of dreaming. Dreaming has always been a major part of my life. Growing up, I was incredibly shy and quiet.

Coffee Break

I don't know how it happened, but I caught a springtime cold: sore throat, body aches, chills, waves of nausea. I'm guessing Cory brought home some germs from the high school he works at...
