Shaniko, Oregon

Last weekend we decided to hop on the bike and embark on another adventure. Thanks to sites like Pinterest I have been able to research things to do locally and find is quick weekend adventures. Because of this research I found so many articles about all the little ghost towns within a 2-4 hour drive.

The first of our ghost town adventures was Shaniko, Oregon. Shaniko was once a bustling town that made most of its income by growing sheep and selling the wool. Once the railroad found a more direct route from Eastern Oregon to Portland, Shaniko slowly died. Then half the town burned down from a brush fire. Today the total population of Shaniko is 25-30 residents.

If you ever find yourself on Highway 97 take an hour to stop and walk around. Loved experiencing this little piece of history and intend on returning soon.

Memory lane

Happy November 1st! I hate to say it’s officially the holidays but woah! Thanksgiving is only four weeks away. Hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween.

I’ve been meaning to get this post up all week but work and life have been busy.

My mom and sister came over Sunday morning for a little walk down memory lane. We spent a few hours together going through old family photos. It was emotional but also so good. I think we needed this to really appreciate the lives we’ve been given and the memories attached.

Here are a few photos from our walk down memory lane. Enjoy!

I still make this face when I’m upset/not getting my way.

Gosh we were super cute 80’s kids!

Fashion Blogging //

I can’t even count how many fashion blogs I follow. I need them to help inspire my own personal style. It helps me break out of my comfort box. 

I was recently scrolling through my phone and realized I’m no where near as awesome at fashion bloggers. Sometimes I think about sharing more of my personal style but then I’m brought back down out of the clouds when look at my awesome fitting room/bathroom portraits. 

I complied a few just to show you guys. My style isn’t anything spectacular but sharing it does sound fun. I hope you enjoy my attempts at fashion blogging!!

It’s officially official.

Well folks, my name has been legally changed. So to honor that here are some pictures from the wedding… Too many in my honest opinion but I didn’t know which one’s to cut. I narrowed it down from 1000 to these select 98.

I understand if you unfollow me or don’t even bother looking at all of them.
