I spent the day in Ferndale with Dad, Mom, and Luke to celebrate Dad’s birthday. I started with a visit to Luke’s work, Van Heusen, to do a hint of shopping. Isn’t he so handsome?! Dad wanted to try this new restaurant in Fairhaven called övn. They do wood fired pizza, salads, and small plates. […]
It was a lovely day here at the Taylor Homestead. We had my parents and brother over, and for the very first time, Grandma Myrna and Aunt Cynthia. Food is my love language. What better way celebrate a few of the mothers in our life. Mom’s famous egg dish. When she asked if I’d like […]
This was a GREAT day. Play to Learn was canceled so some of the parents organized a walk through Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, and they were sweet enough to invite Rosie and I along. It was a scorcher. This is the “before”. You will see at the end of the post why this is pertinent and […]

I have had the privilege of seeing her grow from the time she was three months young, to her now sixteen months of age. And some days, she is especially photogenic. Exhibit A: Breakfast.

We have been having record highs this spring in the Pacific Northwest. And what better way to take advantage of that, than to have some of your favorite people over for a barbecue. I started the iced tea early. Mmmmm peach and coconut (our wedding tea). These two! Chris and Tawny (my 8 months […]
My beautiful, talented, sweet cousin Tawny is having a baby boy. Here is a glimpse into her special day!
This is one of those moments that in the future, after I have conceived, carried, labored, and am finally holding our baby that I will not even remember. But right now, it has me so upset. A year ago, I had my first doctor’s appointment with a provider that was standing in while my […]
I had the pleasure of spending time with a sweet little family on their rural property here in the Pacific Northwest. It was a beautiful day full of duck wrangling, garlic planting, diaper changing, and nature loving. Here is a peek into their special Sunday time.
Confession: I took close to 500 pictures of The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in 3 days, so I am editing as fast as I can. BUT I wanted to throw up a few as a little teaser of things to come. Enjoy!
Who doesn’t love a good pumpkin patch trip? Waking up early, caffeinating, bundling up, then it’s on the road to our favorite patch. It seems like there are more and more family farms with pumpkin patches popping up every year. We like one out in Puyallup called Spooner Farm. It’s about half an hour from […]
