Not much new to report here. I’ve been a little MIA this week. I have to blame HBO’s Westworld for being such an intriguing distraction.
I will be hosting Sunday Social here again this Sunday. (For the record on the Sundays where I know I will be busy IRL, I cancel Sunday Social.) I just want to make sure I can engage with my guests and not just drop a post. I will try to post a cancellation message on the Sundays that I cannot host.
For Picture FriYAY I chose some photos that Miles took on his hike at Steven’s Pass. Most of the images are from the drive up (and down). They were taken on Highway 2.
Have a wonderful weekend, I hope to see you all on Sunday.♥
I’m currently typing one-handed while holding Hayden with the other. (Please excuse typos.)
I also caught the cold that I have been dodging for weeks. Seems like everyone has been sick.
Luckily, I can still host a virtual party without serving my germs as a party favor. I hope you can attend Sunday Social this week, even just to “pop in” for a few minutes. I can’t tell you how much fun SS has been for me! If you can’t make it, don’t worry, you can stop by again next week.
The photos featured today were taken in the photogenic farmlands, and river valley of Snohomish, Washington State.

Miles took these from the rooftop of The Mediterranean Inn. (Where we stayed in Seattle.) The room was pretty inexpensive, the staff was great, and it was in a good location. The rooms were a bit on the small side and dated, but really not bad for the price of staying downtown.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend full of adventure or rest (depending on what you need most)!
I hope everyone is having a cozy winter, and you are all recovering from the bustle of the holidays. Does everyone have New Year’s Eve plans? Miles and I are going to enjoy a quiet evening at home with the kids.
I have compiled a few of Miles’ photos that he has taken this winter.

Last week our family visited a local pumpkin patch. I’m amazed at how much there is to do at a pumpkin patch now. I remember going as a kid and there were normally animals and pumpkins and that was about it. Now there are slides, and duck races (rubber AND real ducks)! The corn mazes are huge and elaborate. Some scary, some educational. There are corn kernel pits and blow up jump toys. It’s wonderful that people have made pumpkin patches so trendy, they are the greatest thing to happen for local farmers since the novelty of Christmas tree farms.
Here are some pictures from our pumpkin patch adventure this year. Miles and I took turns with the camera so these pictures are a mix of our varying talent.
I hope everyone is falling cozily into the season. I’m getting tons of baby snuggles and toddler kisses… as well as meltdowns and projectile vomit. All par for the course right?
Anyway I was going through pictures and found these photos from Miles’ “dude” weekend. Miles and all of his close friends went to Hood Canal a few weekends ago. Even though it was “guys weekend” it was all very tame (So I’ve been told). So the pictures are all “G” rated. 🙂
*Hi honey I hope you don’t mind me sharing*.
I love the PNW and sharing the beauty that surrounds us.
We currently don’t have a computer set up. Between all the house rearranging and projects it’s been shoved into the basement. So I’m currently blogging from my phone.
My roses are bursting right now and it makes me so happy!
I wish I could remember the names of all my roses. I started keeping track of plant names a couple years ago but these roses were the first thing I planted when we moved in 4 years ago. The last rose featured is called “Peace”. It’s the most abundant and hardy of all of my roses.
