With the Holiday weekend in full swing, I hope you and yours are finding a way to celebrate it together!  I absolutely love The 4th of July, it’s generally the real kick off to summer, at least it is here in Oregon.  :)  We spend our weekend at my grandma’s playing cards and dice, eating lots of BBQ and ice cream and enjoying the sunshine in her gorgeous backyard.  Of course, we also enjoy the gorgeous fireworks, which always makes me feel like a little kidClick for more »

::Living by the Rules::

While shopping the other night, I laid eyes upon a treasure. One that stopped me in my tracks and forced me to read it from start to finish. What was it, you ask? A wall hanging entitled: Family Rules. Of course, I had to own this piece of fabulousness, and as I walked around my house last night trying to find the perfect location, the words staring me right in the face, I realized that these “rules” don’t just apply to our family- they also applyClick for more »

::Garrett & Tristine:: Eugene Engagement Photographer

I have always been very close to my family, growing up we all spent a lot of time together.  Me being the only girl, I had to learn to be rough and tumble from an early age to keep up with all of my boy cousins and brother.  :)  We would spend hours playing cops & robbers, hide-and-seek, freeze tag, Marco Polo and occasionally I would convince them to let me dress them up.  Haha… No, Garrett, I am not going to post the evidence.  ;)  I know that I am a luckyClick for more »

::Be Inspired:: An Interview with Emma & Josh Smith

I have to begin this post giving thanks to the brave ones who put their lives on the line for our country.  Having family member’s in the military, I know how it feels to have them be hundreds or even thousands of miles away, fearing where they are or what they’re doing or how they are.  From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU, for all that you have done and all that you will do for our country.  :) Last week, while in Seattle, Jeff and I were finally ableClick for more »

::Seattle PASS Premier::

We were giddy- talking about a mile a minute, grinning from ear to ear, unable to control our overwhelming excitement.  This is usually how we feel whenever we are around the amazing crew at Showit, however, with the addition of Zach & Jody and Promise Tangeman, it was escalated to all new high.  I mean, we were so thrilled, we couldn’t fall asleep until 4am that night.  Or, I guess that be considered morning…  :) Showit‘s main goal is freedom forClick for more »
