2018, hold my coffee.

We always start the New Year off with an adventure.  This time we attempted to see Snoqualmie Falls from the Salish Lodge but was welcomed with a blast of mist, fog, and complete whiteness instead. We had a little more luck hiking to the bottom (as you can see!).

And we always make time to play…

…and get mushy.

So if the man agrees to a sweet shot, you don’t say no.

I also tried a new type of photography style…a little more dark and moody to match the cold weather and Ara’s face, ha! And then realized how it’s getting harder and harder to get them to cooperate.  Because just like that! they were done.

I don’t know about you, but 2017 left me exhausted trying to do it all.

And sometimes you just need to go out with unkempt hair, breathe in life just to wake up the wrinkles, and hit the pause button in this crazy rat race called life.

And we are looking forward to the adventures of this New Year! ❤️

good start…

let it begin...

so i’m taking my own advice.

there are so many things i’d like to include on my endless line of “resolutions” because i adore lists, lists, and more lists.

but it’s high time i just DO them. check them off, one by one.

with that said,

1. finally went to vashon island via ferry.

2. saw the “bicycle in the tree” – left by a young man who went off to war. a hundred years later, the bike grew with tree, high above my head.

3. got a photo by a charming little lighthouse.

…hope i end the year with this much enthusiasm. 😉
