When I was little my mom always talked about driving through the Redwoods. She described it like the trees would be massive and magical and I always imagined it that way in my head. We never made it on that trip and so needless to say driving through the redwoods has always been at the top of my list of things I needed to do in life! This was actually the third installment of our trip (Seattle blog coming soon) We drove from Montana to Seattle and then Seattle to Crescent City California which is where this blog post picks up!Read More
Maybe fostering love looks like being gentle, slowly, repeatedly sharing a love for something. This is probably not that profound of a thought but I find it completely comforting to know that I don't have to force Jessamyn to love what I love. I don't have to take her into nature and say "you will like this or else." I can just gently and softly share life experiences with her and know that the memories we make, the continuity that comes from gently doing something together in nature... that is enough.Read More
SO you want to get outdoors, but its Fall and you have a baby... that means changing weather, changing light, and just the general extra needs of hiking with a toddler. We try to get out with Jessamyn pretty frequently so today I thought I would put together a little guide for how we get out in the Fall (and soon to be Winter) with a baby.Read More
Today's tiny style is a brand I have shared before but am sharing again today because we have the privilege of being the first to share a new style and because the dye obviously! Chocolate Milke is a brand that we absolutely love, Jessamyn and I probably have a good 9 pairs of leggings between the two of us and I am not exaggerating! I pretty much love how easy it is the pair anything with tie dye and honestly how quickly I can get Jessamyn dressed when just leggings and a shirt are involved!Read More
Recently life has been a bit hectic.
There have been boxes, contracts, objections, and a lot of home renovations.
Recently we have not been living,
more just going through the motions,
and now at the end of all of it...
We are holding our breath and waiting.Read More
Even though we couldn't actually "pick" any of the apples we did go walk around for a bit and Jessamyn really liked gathering up all the rotten ones off the ground. I know that she probably won't remember this experience but even still I hope she knows we tried and that even rotten apples can be beautiful.Read More
A few years ago for my husbands birthday I surprised him with a trip to Winter park! I didn't know anything about this town I mostly picked it because I found a cute airbnb to stay in and thought it would be fun to kidnap him... well now three years later we are going back with the tiny to recreate that trip!Read More
