I Heart Weddings


Posted on Nov 4, 2008

I had the privilege to attend my friends' wedding on Sunday.  It was held in a beautiful barn in Independence.  The setting was just gorgeous and the bride was stunning.   She asked if I would take a few pictures to help document the festivities.  Well, documentation is my middle name.  I was thrilled to do this for my friends.  The lighting was beautiful, but dim so I was really unsure of...

Last Friday, we celebrated my Mother-in-law's Birthday by taking her to see Ladysmith Black Mambazo in Salem.  My husband had a trigger finger when he purchased tickets and we had glorious  front row seats.  The show was amazing.  It was far beyond my greatest expectations.  The energy these guys have is unreal.  The concert was at the beautiful Elsinore theater.  I have walked past this...

Portland Marathon 2008

Yesterday was the annual Portland Marathon.  My husband was among the 9300 runners.  He did an amazing job and I couldn't be more proud of him.  This is something I could never do.  The race kicked off at 7am.  It was crazy being downtown with so many thousands of people.  Spirits were high and everyone was very friendly. Having the pace setting lizards was so great.  I was able to see my...

Filling the kiln


Posted on Sep 30, 2008

I spent the last week at my good friends' house taking care of their adorable beasts.  Since my kiln lives at their house, I also had the opportunity to get some glass done.  It feels like it's been years since I did any glass.  It was so nice to spend all day Saturday being creative.  I managed to fire 2 kiln loads.  That makes me so happy! You will probably remember these guys since I house sit for...

So You Think You Can Dance


Posted on Sep 22, 2008

I'm a sucker for dance.  I love everything about it.  I think this love started from watching Debbie Allen on Fame when I was a kid.  Since then I've watched everything I can from musicals to the cheesiest of dance shows on TV.  Last night I went to see the So You Think You Can Dance tour with a friend.  I've been addicted to this show from it's premiere.  These contestants are so talented...

Chipmunk Fever


Posted on Sep 4, 2008

People who know me, know I love squirrels.  The only thing I like more than squirrels are chipmunks.  During our hike last weekend on Mt. Howard, we were surrounded by tons of very friendly chipmunks.  I was in hog heaven.   I probably took more pictures of the chipmunks than I did of the vistas.  This little guy was so friendly and took me by surprise when he jumped on my leg.  Chipmunks tried to...
