Oh, there’s no place like Alaska for the holidays.

Oh, there’s no place like Alaska for the holidays.

December was lovely… made all the more brilliant with time spent with friends and family. We found ourselves enjoying snowy Alaska in many different ways. No December would be complete without a walk along Matanuska River.  A perfect place to get amazing views and wide open spaces! We went there when it was super cold, right around […]

3rd Annual Christmas Cabin Loveliness

3rd Annual Christmas Cabin Loveliness

It has quickly become one of my favorite Ben and Katie Christmas Traditions. This year it turned out even more lovely than ever.

The Giroux Family.

It was the most perfect day. I spent time in the woods with loveliness all around. An Addie. An Elizabeth. A Jess, Brad, Bowen, and Cannen. The Giroux Family all filled with love and laughter.

We found some laughter, joy, […]

i love you much…

I was behind him for most of our walk, snapping photos and soaking in the sun. My view of him was of his smile and his shiny eyes. His deep laugh and infectious joy. He is everything handsome, whole, and good in this world. I am blessed to get to walk with him and enjoy […]
