I walked down the hall and there she was, laying on the floor of her room reading her scriptures… I tiptoed backwards as best as I could so as not to disrupt her. I was going for my camera… This was a moment I wanted to remember forever! It was a moment when all the parenting and all the struggling and all the effort comes together and gives you a perfect and blissful peak into heaven where you see that it really is sinking in. This was a perfect mommy moment, I’m so grateful that I was able to capture it.

I found this Cookies & Cream Scone Mix by Suburban Contessa at our little local market in Hockinson. I decided to pick up a bag and make them up for breakfast that weekend – they were so delicious I was back for more the same week. There are several different flavors and great news, you can get a hold of them online too! I’m definitely going to need more bags… So yummy and perfect for weekend house guests!

Dear New York,
Hello. I’ll try my hardest not to sing my introduction to you so as not to embarrass you but I’m just so excited and well, usually when I’m excited – I can’t help but sing. There is so much about you that I can’t wait to get to know. Our time together is very limited, only 3 days of my trip, but I am going to try to absorb all that you are in as intense of manner as I possibly can.
You offer so much to see, so much to do, so much to experience. It’s hard to know where to even begin, but can I be honest with you? From one city girl to the city girl… I planned my must see list based on reels playing in my mind from the silver screen. All of those fabulous flicks based around magnificent you… to finally meet you makes me feel like I’m meeting a hero. The great and wonderful New York City, where everything is possible! I feel the same way toward life and that’s why I know we’re going to be great friends.
So thank you so much for having me!
