throw back blog: our engagement

I always see people posting adorable throw back Thursday pictures on their social media and thought I would get in on the game (albeit several years late) with some throw back blogs!!! Our adventures started long before we were the Corwins (officially) so I thought I would post some of our amazing adventures from before […]

ruby roni is 4.

We have a little bundle of energy that lives in our home. Her name is Ruby. Ruby Roni. Ruby Roni Toni. Ruby Roni Grapefruit. Ruby Red Grapefruit. Ruby Tuesday. Ruby boo. She has many names. But really she is just my little angel puppy. She is really the best dog around. And it shocks me […]

We have been having much fun in the Valley. And heading out on many adventures, some big, some small… Not much has changed it seems like: We still make amazing sourdough blueberry pancakes.

Ben, Ruby, LaFonda Honda, and I headed up to our favorite blueberry spot today. I took the day off work as Ben and I had declared ourselves burnt-the-hell-out and so decided the cure was a day riding the wheeler and picking some berries. It was the correct diagnosis and treatment plan! We woke up, loaded […]

My friend, Emily, and her trusty sidekick, Zook, showed Ruby and me a new trail today! They took us to the Gold Mint Trail in Hatchers Pass. It was absolutely marvelous and a perfect easy-day trail. We walked about 3.5 miles before we turned around. We headed towards the most beautiful mountains and next to the Susitna […]
