I’m thankful for this April. For time with Sam and Ben and Ruby. For sunshine and mountains. For the Resurrection of my Savior. And our family and friends near and far that we got to spend time with. We started out April with a bang! A hike up Mt. Baldy on a just perfectly sunny day. Sam […]

A big birthday celebration, a visit from Grammy Julie, and […]

There were canoe trips, and fishing, and bird hunting, and campfires, and smores, and all things wonderful. The rest of […]

May is one of my favorite months. It always starts with my birthday and is filled with summer coming, camping trips, bear stalks and longer summer days. This May did NOT disappoint. 30th. Yep, I crossed in to my 30’s leaving behind the amazing decade that was my 20’s. We celebrated with fajitas, family, and friends. […]
