Three Weeks Later

Motivation where are you?

I have still had no motivation or desire to go on a run. I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I’m that type of runner that needs something to train towards. Even if I know that my marathon training is going to start in 4 months, it still is something that gets me out there to run.… Read the rest

I had the perfect option or so I thought…

I have been dreaming of running another marathon. I went through hours of searching the web to find one that would be easy to get to and be able to make a cheapish trip out of it.… Read the rest

And it happened again

Alright you all, the second snow stuck this week and it was even more than the first one we played in the other day. Needless to say, we were back out there early in the morning for some snow filled fun.… Read the rest

Snow Day

Alright all you all. This Montana girl has been wanting snow and now that it is almost spring here in the state of Oregon, it has come! I can’t lie that I wasn’t liking the sun and warmer temperatures, but I was sad about Elijah missing out on snow adventures.… Read the rest

That really puts a damper on going camping, hiking or anything else outdoors on top of a remodel.… Read the rest

Experiencing a Loss | Miscarriage Part 3

News came

Two fridays before Christmas, I couldn’t help myself. I took another pregnancy test and walked out of the bathroom to tell Brent that I was still pregnant. I chuckled a little in relief knowing that I was in fact really pregnant.… Read the rest

Did I have a miscarriage?

I hardly even know where to begin as I start this post. I don’t think I have ever shared anything like this on here before. I am hoping that it speaks to someone out there that needs to hear that you are not alone.… Read the rest

Christmas Tree Farm | A New Form of Tree…

Brent and I have been married for almost 10 years. That means this Christmas will be our tenth one together. It is so much fun to think about that. We don’t have a lot of traditions established yet. Mostly because we just did whatever was going on with our families and our friends.… Read the rest
