I am that hippie kid who grew up in the 70’s and 80’s . When asked from where specifically, I tend to sum it up with “the United States Collective” I’m a product of Growing up Global ly but in a local form, having never left the US until college. I have lived in 10 different states and several places within and most spots in the middle of nowhere, or at least that is what I thought as a kid. I only wanted to run and do the opposite of my parents like any normal rebellious child. I dreamed of moving to the city where I would marry a man who wore a suit and worked in an office, I have no idea why but maybe because it was different. Years later I’m grown and have run back to my roots to dig up all those skills I ignored, but know I must have assimilated through some sort of crazy osmosis. I remember fresh fish and game, homemade yogurt, and blackberry picking excursions down by the river that were fueled by motivation: more berries = more pies. With those seeds of self sufficiency planted from my childhood and my hands on education in the outdoor world; I hold degrees in a ski bumming, river rat swimming, climbing vagabonding and more title oddities that only a prolific reader of climbing route names would understand, I have begun to grow roots and enjoy the fruits of tending to my plants.
I have a family of my own and if you know me, you know my husband’s suit, top to bottom consists of a ski hat, down jacket and jeans. I’m excited to share that wonderful childhood with my children but with my twist. I’m just wondering where they’ll want to run!
Join me as I rediscover the sweeter things of life through food, family, travel and community.

I take photos so that I may share and remember. The practice of living in the moment is an aspiration that I try to live up to on a daily basis, and photography helps me recognize and remember that each instant is unique and that every one of us has the capability to fully experience it in our own way. I have chosen to spend time behind the lens to record these blink-and-you-miss-it moments. I strive to capture the positive facets of life as it is presented each day. Be it a smile on a chicken, a mountain range in flux or the drape of a bride’s veil, life deserves an advocate who is devoted to capturing it at its best.

Do you do giveaways and product or book reviews?
We haven’t done any giveaways or product reviews yet, but are not opposed to it. If there is something to shout about and it is super awesome we would love to know about it.
I am planning on a vacation to the Methow Valley, Washington State where should I go and what’s not to be missed?
Oh, the list is long and it really depends on what you would like to do here.
The Methow Valley experiences all five seasons (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter and Mud) so pick your favorite or just visit often.
The Summer is lovely and if you drove over the North Cascades Highway 20 you already know how beautiful the American Alps really are.
Autumn is an outdoor lovers paradise here in the Methow. If you can think it up it’s probably an option, unless of course you want take out or shopping after 9pm ;0)
Winter is full of wonder. Ullr lays down a beautiful blanket of snow right about mid December just in time for the Piston Bullies to awake from their slumber and leave their tracks for all ski enthusiasts to follow.
Spring is amazing if you enjoy wild flowers and like us love color after a winter of living in an Ansel Adams photograph. It’s beautiful but change is beautiful too.
I am working on a dedicated page with a list of whatever I can think up. Check it out here!
