Picture hunting gets pretty competitive in our house.

Can't finish out the day without giving some love to this crazy kitty. Meia is definitely one-of-a-kind!

Pioneer Woman's Grave off Old Mount Hood Highway/Barlow Road. Discovered in 1924 by workers laying the highway, it's been a reminder of how hard the trail was for some Pioneers seeking a better life on the west coast.

Quote on the sign reads, "My father remembered meeting a man who had just buried his wife. He buried her in a wagon box made from the bed of a wagon, and made a crude fence around the grave. She had been very sick, and they had camped there several days before she died. The man had two small children, a boy and a girl, both under five years of age." -son of Steve Coalman (Barlow Road Superintendent)

There is no replacement for the happiness picture taking brings. For World Photography Day I thought I'd share the picture that won me my first photography contest. -circa 2007

A recap of our Pokémon GO adventure in downtown Lebanon, Oregon. We enjoyed catching some Pokémon and doing some local shopping.

Hmm... I love dandelions, but not when they sneak into my herb garden and go to seed.

Received my Comestible summer edition-Chocolate, coffee, wine... Love the layout and can not wait to dye with wild fennel this season.

The Mr. and I went seeking a new "something" for the coming Thanksgiving family visit. Taking pictures helps narrow down our favorites. The Mr. is a sneaky photo bomber.

The morning sun created fun shadows on our homeschool classroom window curtain. We've spent this week getting things organized and ready for a new year.

Sunny Saturday Sunflower.

We both got new glasses. The Bean went with frame-less/transition lenses and I went with clear. We're always, the cool ones in glasses.

You're never too old to ask for birthday presents. I asked for a pound of chocolate covered espresso beans and The Mr. came through for me.

Oh, oh, oh sweet child of mine. His gifts and unconditional love always make me smile.

Owning less is better than organizing more.

Can you believe this kid is a seventh grader and in junior high? We started back to school today in the Rain Valley Red Snails classroom. We are pretty pumped for this year and are looking forward to the challenges and fun ahead!

There was once a time in my life, between 2005-2011, that I was around people that made me feel isolated, segregated, bullied, and alone. I'm glad to say there are two people in my everyday life that never make me feel this way anymore. (Mr. Williams, your words are heartbreaking, now more than ever. You are so loved and desperately missed.) #noonecanmakeyoufeelinferiorwithoutyourconsent #robinwilliams #lovecostsnothing #bullyingisnotokay #adultbulliesaretheworst
