Go Getter’s Getaway

Hey all. I am working on doing some big things with Jessica Sara Photography. I want it to be more than just taking pictures. There is so much I want to happen with it and I just need to slowly move forward with these goals. For now, go check out my latest post over at my business website to hear about what I am currently trying to do.… Read the rest

Rising Early

I recently made the switch at work to a 4-10 schedule which means I now wake up (too) early, but I get Monday’s off. A while back, we had one of our favorite families over for a couple days and I decided to make the most of the early morning on my day off.… Read the rest

Our Norwegian Adventure | Reykjavík

I know. I know. Reykjavík is in Iceland not Norway, but it is tied to our Norwegian adventure. It will forever be part of that time when we went to Norway and had a little added bonus on our way home. We arrived at the airport not knowing where we would stay or if we would even get a place.… Read the rest

Our Norwegian Adventure | Oslo

We took the very scenic railway from Bergen to Oslo. It is said to be the best in Europe. We sure enjoyed being able to see more of the countryside and to enjoy the long ride without being in a plane for a change. It was helpful for Elijah as well because we were able to walk around with him more and there was a play area.… Read the rest

Our Norwegian Adventure | Bergen

Elijah had another successful night sleeping away in our old Bergen home away from home. His schedule was back to being somewhat normal which made for an easier trip for all of us. It helped us to really enjoy the rest of our time in Norway. We frequented the local grocery store Kiwi in Tromsø and were glad to find one across the street from our house in Bergen.… Read the rest

Our Norwegian Adventure | Norway in a Nutshell

After leaving Tromsø, we flew to Bergen. I fell in love instantly from the sky. Looking out the window, I knew that this part of the trip was going to be spectacular and it was. We quickly settled into our new Airbnb which was an 1920’s old wooden home. It sure had it’s charm.… Read the rest

Our Norwegian Adventure | Long Travel Day(s)

Our Norwegian Adventure

Long Travel Day(s)

We started off our first day of travel by waking up too early in the morning. Elijah decided that he was way to excited about his first international trip that he needed to wake us up at 5 a.m. We knew that it would be a long couple days and were hoping for a little more sleep.… Read the rest

Blessed

Anniversary Day

Today marks Brent’s and my 9th anniversary. There is just so much to say about how blessed I have been over these last nine years. It is hard to know where to begin. Here are just a few of my thoughts on Brent. I sure do love this guy!… Read the rest

Night Night

I love when it is time for Elijah’s night time routine. We have a fun little bath and then it is off to drinking his milk. We usually get to snuggle during this time which of course is my favorite. This time around I set Elijah down in the chair while I went to get him his bedtime milk.… Read the rest

Backyard Fun

Grandparent’s yards are fun

After we went to the park the other day, we spent more time outside in the backyard. I couldn’t help but keep taking pictures of my little man. He is just so much fun to watch. I love how he is always discovering something new in the backyard.… Read the rest

Background Photographer

A couple weeks back, Jess had a photo session with a friend and her boyfriend in Hood River. I tagged along and wandered around with my camera while she took their photos. I’m going to try to be better about posting my images on the blog. I take a proper camera with me nearly everywhere, so I have a lot of images.… Read the rest

All to Ourselves | Sorosis Park

Sorosis Park in The Dalles

With the weather being in the 80’s for a couple days here in The Dalles, I decided it was a good chance to put the kiddo in shorts and go to Sorosis park early in the morning. Apparently, I am the only parent that thought of taking their little one at 9 in the morning.… Read the rest
