Fall in love with life…

With an undefended heart, we can fall in love with life over and over every day. We can become children of wonder, grateful to be walking on earth, grateful to belong to each other and to all of creation. We can find our true refuge in every moment, in every breath. Tara Brach What an […]

Yesterday, we met up with the Grahams at the Kenai Lake put-in in Cooper Landing. We loaded up Happy Adventure, our NRS Otter, for a day on the river. We fished, relaxed, laughed, and unloaded our stresses. We planned for a rainy day but the day was brilliant. Hot and sunny. Cloudy and breezy. And […]

Ben and I loaded up early one morning and set sail for the Kenai! We had one day off together and decided to spend it attempting to get some reds, maybe some trout, spend the day on the river, and have a great time catching up with some friends. We made it to Sportsman’s like […]

  It is that time of the year where we go after some birds. It is always one of my favorite weekends of fall, see here and here! It is such a low-key adventure where we wander around back country roads and shoot birds. We row around lakes and find fish. And just live up the quiet moments […]

Back in October, my friend Rachel and I had a delightful idea to go visit her parents in Trinidad over spring break. Yes, you heard me right, as in the island nation of Trinidad and Tobago where her parents are currently living. We basically had to only book the tickets and wait…. but for just […]

an evening with all my besties…

Saturday was a brilliant day… We slept in. We did some chores. But then, we escaped the house. We drove down to the Whale Park a.k.a. Elderberry Park in Downtown Anchorage and went for a walk in the lovely sunshine amidst all the happy downtowners. We walked down the bike trail, then took a right […]

Welcome to the story of how Ben and Jake conquered sheep country on opening day. They left early Friday morning for sheep country and upon arrival, hiked far into the hills to find those little white specks upon the cliffs. And they found gobs and gobs of them as well as a few other critters! […]
