valentine’s day baby

Well, today is February 14th. I have mixed feelings about this date because of course you should celebrate those you love every day (which honestly, I think is even more meaningful). But, that doesn’t mean you can’t use it as an excuse to leave work on time and spend some quality time with your significant other, your friends, or even […]

a stranger halloween

With Halloween on a Monday, it’s been a LONG weekend of celebrating. We have an office costume party today, but we’ll be keeping it nice and relaxed this evening with some homemade popcorn and a (non-scary) movie.

a hike and a dog

Yesterday I attempted my first ever solo hike with Kipling at Kenneth Hahn and learned two things. 1. Kipling is both the best and worst workout partner – she never stops. She is still a tugger, and she was going absolutely nuts over all of the gopher holes. She dragged me up the hill and […]

happy holidays!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! This is our family photo we used on our holiday cards this year. We tried to get Kipling to sit on the bench with us, but she decided to just hop up onto the table instead. We also took her to get her annual Santa picture taken before Christmas (see […]

life lately (from my phone)

Since Halloween, life seems to have simultaneously slowed down and sped up. I haven’t picked up my DSLR much, and I know my blogging game was off last week. I have managed to snap some photos on my phone along the way, so here is what we’ve been up to… We finally succumbed to allowing […]
