A little while ago I got a random idea... What if I captured life one photo, one sentence and one day at a time – for a whole year? So that's exactly what I'm doing. I hope you enjoy.
We had a blast celebrating Charlie's 60th at the Tap House Grill.
We drove through an awesome Christmas light display at a local neighborhood today to get us in the Christmas spirit.
Searching for the culprit.
I'd highly recommend the poem "If" by Rudyard Kipling to anyone, but especially the men out there.
Phoebe playing the piano at Nana's family Christmas party (with some assistance from Nanny).
"The stockings were hung by the chimney with care..."
Time for my work Christmas white elephant party, which we deciding is an ugly Christmas sweater party.
That was too awesome not to share – my folks ordered this burlap Christmas sack from England for Pheebs' presents.
We had a fun surprise visit today at work by The Dickens Carolers.
I saw Interstellar tonight with my dad, sister and brother-in-law for my dad's birthday — what an epic movie!
I had an adorable little helper assist me with the Christmas tree.
Our first (real) Christmas tree as a family!
It was awesome to see one of my oldest and best friends today and be able to congratulate him and his bride-to-be on their engagement.
Angie is SUPER crafty, so at any given moment she could have one of a number of different projects (like this one) in the works.
My lunchtime run is something I look forward to everyday because it helps me de-stress, keeps me in shape and gets me out of the stuffy office environment for an hour or so.
The sexiest reindeer on Santa's staff.
Pheebs ordered the fidebksjshehsks.
It's getting quite festive in the office!
Who says it's too cold to run in 21 degree weather?!
I like Bellingham a little more after seeing this.
One of the many things we're thankful for — delicious gluten-free stuffing!
Heading up north for our Thanksgiving festivities!
FYI — the Christmas tree section of Hobby Lobby is excellent for peek-a-boo.
Days off are the best because I get to do activities with the family that I couldn't normally do on a Monday afternoon, like go to Wiggle Works to run around!
Napping, eating, begging and journaling on a sunny Sunday morning.
I'm freakin' thankful for — our first annual thanksgiving breakfast, family (the good ones), pumpkin pancakes, Frozen (on behalf of Phoebe), Cairo and Bruno, Angie and Phoebe kisses and laughter.
It's Pheebs with Little Sebastian!
Full disclosure — it's only November 20th and the Christmas decorations have been up for 20 days.
I work at World Vision, and we believe in children (and orange Christmas trees!).
Everyday carry (EDC) – these items get me through the day, keep me safe, sane and connected.
