As we say goodbye to 2016, I’m reflecting on this amazing year! The launch of this blog allowed me to seriously pursue my love of photography!
Over this past year, I’ve enjoyed 12 fabulous trips: Florida, Bahamas, Canada (twice), Joshua Tree, Cancun, Palm Springs, Ireland, Yosemite, New York, Oregon and Lake Tahoe. Whether a short drive or a 13 hour plane flight, it has been a crazy adventure.
I’m finishing off the year with photos of some of my favorite memories!! Wishing you all the best in 2017!!
HAPPY NEW YEAR

Happy Fall Everyone!
My passion is travel, except around the holidays. Having my home decorated is a MUST! I’m now focused on Halloween decor. First stop was Petco so my boys could choose their costumes. Call me the crazy dog lady who loves to dress up her dogs. They look so happy, especially Ghost in his little hat. Enjoy this beautiful Fall season!!

I love long weekends where I can travel for 2 hours and have a perfect getaway. Kayla, a dear high school friend, joined me for this adventure. Destination…The Parker Hotel! It has always peaked my interest for its unique indoor/outdoor decor. The grounds are fun to meander. Without signs, we were constantly getting lost in gorgeous areas. We discovered tennis courts, hammocks, croquette, lemonade stands, water fountains, pools, and even a secret garden with white bunnies. While the weather was HOT ( 115 degrees hot!), I can’t wait to return!!!
Unfortunately, I have no photos of the adorable lemonade stand. However, here are two images from the internet so you can appreciate it!
The 4th of July has always been my most favorite holiday from childhood (maybe tied with Christmas). Since it is also close to my dog’s birthday, we have quite the celebration. On July 2, 2015, Loki (the german-shepard/husky mix), turned 2. At that time, I was content with one dog. However, the second I met Ghost (purebred Siberian husky), I knew he belonged in my family. They are now inseparable and keep me entertained. While Loki shares his birthday with Ghost’s “Gotcha day”, we use the 4th as an excuse to have a grand party for them both. Yes! I admit it! I am a crazy dog mom who loves puppy parties!!
Below I’m sharing photos from the 4th. I’ve also included one from 2015 to show Ghost’s growth. I’m amazed at how HUGE he is now!!!! I am so blessed with my little family and counting down the days till next year’s July 4th celebration. Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate.
Happy 3rd Birthday Loki!
Happy 1st “Gotcha day” Ghost!
Happy 240th Birthday America!!!
Best way to end the night, S’mores and a neighborhood fireworks show.
Hope everyone had a safe and memorable 4th of July!
“I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling 22!”
On June 7th, I turned 22! I happened to get the prettiest pink peonies EVER and obviously had to have a photoshoot.
Also, if you are looking for the perfect crewneck tee check out this one. I am obsessed! Of course, I bought it in every color!
