Thenaday-Last Summer


Last summer we had friends visiting.  Ohhh these two…I couldn’t get enough of them.  B and I miss you guys mucho!!!  Here are a few photos I took of them as they explored Cannon Beach or as they call it here “THE COAST”.  It was Kara’s first time touching the North Pacific Ocean’s water.  The little things that puts a smile on ones face–ohhh I LOVE!  Photos taken with Canon 5D Mark ii.  Enjoy!

Celebrations, Photography


The weekend was filled with activities.  One of them was a farewell/new job celebration/birthday get together for one of my dearest friend.  We have known each other for a year and some and my the bond we have is out of this world.  From the laughters to the tears of happy and sad, we had it all, even our mini fights.  All in all she is an amazing person and we are alike in many ways.  The dream she spoke of a year and half ago came true!  Quicker than we expected.  The timing was just right.  I can’t stop being excited for her.  I am sad I won’t have her a few minutes away and also happy she will start her new chapter with great things awaiting for her!  XOXO to you MEL!!!!!!


I took this quote from F21.  They had it on one of  their notebook.  This was so fitting for Mel because although it is an ending to one chapter it is just the BEGINNING of another.


Message in a jar to help her through the gloomy days.  DIY message in the jar posting to come soon.


Many of us won’t be able to make it down on her birthday so I decided to add her birthday celebration in there as well.


Ahhmazingly she blew out all the candles…


Last but not least, Lava was able to join in on the fun celebration.  She was so calm that night and typically this little rascal is all over the place filled with energy.

The night was great and thanks to all who came to celebrate.  She will be back!!! =)

Happy Tuesday.

Summer is leaving us soon.   For the last two years it has been a bittersweet transition of season for me.  I came across a snow cone booth this past weekend  at the Oregon Bite…how could I just pass it and not get one?!  It was 80 degrees out AND I needed something to cool me down.  It was a nostalgic moment…I felt like a little kid again.  While my half was coloring our shaved ice I was behind the Canon Mark II capturing away.




I hope you are enjoying the last bits of SUMMER 2013..I can’t believe we are already half way through AUGUST.  Happy Thursday!

Three years old–RyRy

Ry Ry loves spider man and his 3 year old party theme was Super Heros.  Besides my frenchies that I dog-sit–Kids steal my heart away and babies–even more when their around the 6 month mark!  Ben and I were honored to join in Ry Ry’s 3rd birthday celebration.  All photos taken by the better half with Canon Mark II 5D and Sigma 50mm lens.  Ry ry is so polite and well mannered little character.  I received a new nickname from him ” Auntie Tweet”.  So stinkin’ cute!! I love him.

tea-coffee break


Photo by: the lover boy with his Canon Mark II and Sigma 50mm–Photo was taken a little bit ago during our tea/coffee break–I was sippin’ on my Chai tea latte with soy–My favorite at STARBUCKS! Later to come I will share about our coffee/tea love. On another note, I am a big Nikon fan and I have now opened my world to learn the Canon family of DSLR. The more the merrier right? One household with too many varieties of preferences. Ahh ya! Explore the world because it is all yours to learn and share.

This Friday I am choosing to unwind with just hobbies and relax. Things involving little thinking. My mind has been neglected of therapy time. Hope you have your me and relaxing time too. Its great for the mind and the soul. Happy Friday folks!
