October is my birthday month, and this year the family came down for a day of pumkins, football, and food. Here are a few photos from our day. LUKE! My ever- goofy daddy! I don’t know why, but I LOVE this photo. It slays me. We love Spooner Farms! These wild ones wanted to do […]
We have waited the arrival of this sweet boy for months on end. His mama is my dear cousin, Tawny (travel writer, blogger, shopping partner) and she and her husband, Christopher welcomed this little nugget into the world six weeks ago.

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 […]
