Summer 2016

So… It’s October 2nd. My last post was June 29th. The last month I had determine I wasn’t going to renew this space. But this morning something washed over me and I’m just not ready to let go. I was reading back through older post and this space holds so many memories. I cannot wait to continue to add to our memory box.

So what have we been up to this summer you ask. A lot.


I went to a bachelorette party and these people were walking the camp grounds like life size stick figures.

Went to my second rodeo and felt the need to dress the part.

Calvin came up to visit. Had to take our usual selfie.

This sweet girl is having a baby any day and I got the privilege to throw her an Oregon shower.

Calvin and Lola needed snuggle time (he posed).

I found a yard gnome! Our new place came with him and I couldn’t be more thrilled.

Went hiking to Abiqua Falls.


Hiking is amazing but even better when you have great company along the way.

Hiking around Rhody Lake.

Terrible yoga by Rhody Lake.

Cleaned up for a wedding. Love Oregon wine country.

L’s mom got a puppy! She was there the morning of my last day as an insurance agent. We needed to document the morning.

Puppies and their unusual sleeping spots.

Slow Sunday mornings with our fur babies and sunlight.

Enjoyed many Harley rides before we retire the old girl.

Started building a fence.

Had many days sunbathing with my girl.

Our annual trip to Oktoberfest in Mt. Angel.

Going on day dates to enjoy the sun before its gone for 9 months.


Well that was our summer in a nutshell. As I sit here typing this it’s raining and gloomy. I love it! Life can sneak up on us (2016 is almost gone!) and I hope to embrace it more everyday.

Happy Sunday everyone.
