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! ❤️

apple-picking for the win!

i’m excited to say that our attempts to cash in on all the fall activities have begun commenced. although we were a tad late on our our apple-picking adventure, we still came out winners.

we recommend checking out curran apple orchard in university place, wa.  it’s free, safe, quiet, and charming —> everything a mama approves! thus we have kept this little gem on our autumn bucket-list for two years now. (thank you, jenny! 🙂 )

within 20 minutes we managed to get enough apples to make caramel apples, apple crisp, and perhaps apple sauce. (more of that to come later!)

and oh! i snuck in a darling mini photoshoot to mark the adventure!
