We’ve been living in Helena for almost two months now. Our apartment is mostly settled and ready for a baby boy any time now. We’ve started taking the steps toward integrating ourselves into the community of Helena. One of those steps was partaking in one of the largest events the city holds each year, Symphony Under the Stars.… Read the rest
When we moved to the Gorge, two and a half years ago, we envisioned living in Hood River or White Salmon. Close to work and close to play. The reality of the housing market kept us from our ideal spot and after a few months of living with Jess’s parents, we desired a place of our own.… Read the rest
With all the craziness of life going on. I have not spent the time with my family that they deserve. Either I’m home and busy, or gone entirely. At least that’s how it was. Now that the house is “done” and we are just days away from moving back to Montana, I’ve been able to spend some much needed time with my little family.… Read the rest
I accepted the job, finished the house to get it on the market and drove out to Montana to work a couple weeks. We are full swing into a new chapter of life, yet this seems more like a prelude. Nothing is settled, everything feels up in the air. It makes me think of catching a pop-fly ball when you know you have it, but you’re momentarily blinded by the sun.… Read the rest
I work at Skyline Hospital as an IT administrator. I maintain computers, networks, and help out the hospital staff with their digital woes. It’s something I feel I’m good at, but to be honest, it’s not something I’m overly excited about. But a couple times a year, I get to put on my creative hat and do some photo a video work for the hospital.… Read the rest
If you follow either Jess or myself on Instagram, you probably saw that we went on a family trip to Kauai recently. It was a great trip, though it may have highlighted some chapters being turned in our lives.
We traveled there with Elijah, Jess’s parents and her sister Krista. It was a nearly full van, especially the first and last day with all our luggage.… Read the rest
I have been at this whole multimedia side-hustle thing for a while now. I started off in high school making slideshow presentations for graduation ceremonies, homecoming events and recap videos for mission trips.… Read the rest
Hey all! I’m not sure if you all remember, but I love photography! Ha! I’ve been busy taking pictures and throwing them all up on my photography website over at jessicasaraphotography.com. If you haven’t checked it out in a while, please do! I’d love your support in any way that you can give it!… Read the rest
Part 2 of my adventure to Nepal with Approach Intl.
We got into Dubai in the late evening. The flight was long, but not too bad. We both got good naps and felt pretty good upon arrival. Andy booked us a hotel just off the airport for our layover. After going through immigration, getting my stuff searched through, shuttling to the hotel and dropping off our bags, we headed into the city to see some sights.… Read the rest
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. And because I rambled on in the last post, I’ll just leave you with way too many pictures to look at.… Read the rest
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. Well, it came Saturday night and there was barely anything on the ground.… Read the rest
