{Dooley Beloved} A Bachelorette Party Done Right!

Tuesday, July 18, 2017











Last week we were in Wyoming celebrating the marriage of Heidi & Tyler Dooley!
We spent a day fly fishing, drinking bourbon, eating burgers, sleeping outside,
and sharing laughs and tears around a sagebrush campfire.
Was this really a bachelorette party or was it my birthday??
What a gift to be surrounded by such strong and thoughtful women.
Who are some women you admire and respect?
Happy Tuesday, y'all!

{Dear Bravey Train} Letters from Mama

Thursday, July 13, 2017


Thank you for bringing out my inner wild thing.


For reminding me of the magical things down low.


For being a girl who commits when she's hungry.


For showing me that two are better than one.


And for helping me break routine and enjoy Popsicles on the roof.
I love the ways you change me Brave Richmond Loerke.
All my heart,
Mama

This video had me both laughing and crying in our kitchen this afternoon!
Here's to taking time to make those we love feel celebrated.

{A Pickin' Good Time}

Tuesday, July 11, 2017





A couple of weeks ago Brave and I took our friends Chels, Ava, and Silas blueberry picking.
This was the first year Brave was old enough to out-pick me!
We left with full bellies, sun kissed shoulders, and two exhausted kiddos who
enjoyed playing hide and seek in the fields as much as they did picking blueberries.
Kuplink, Kuplank, Kuplunk!
If you go picking don't forget to save some blueberries for homemade preserves,
always to open on the first snow of winter!
Happy Wednesday, y'all.

{A Dream Accomplished}

Friday, June 30, 2017


I've watched this girl make incredible sacrifices over the past 4 years to be standing where she is today.
There were the pre-rec classes she started taking just 3 weeks after Rowan was born, the lengthy application process to get into school, an interview which lead to an acceptance phone call 1 month before PA classes began, countless hours spent studying for exams, rotations both near and far, and
finally graduation day ...
I couldn't be more encouraged by your perseverance and dedication to finish what you started Molls.
You've grown so much in this process and I'm beyond proud of you, PA-C!

Almost 12 minutes of music that will fill your soul.
A great way to kick off a new week if you ask me. 
Happy Monday, y'all!

{Happy Papa's Day!}

Saturday, June 17, 2017



To the man whose imagination rivals that of Peter Pan, who goes above and beyond to provide for his family, and who gives Brave a bath each night before tucking her into bed,
you are adored, appreciated, so very loved and respected!
Happy Papa's Day.

Often times my pride and desire to achieve keep me from truly resting.
These two ground me. 
Happy Saturday, ya'll!

{Happy 37th Twinner!}

Thursday, June 08, 2017


To the girl who deposits relational change into the pockets of anyone she meets, whose strongest muscle is her thoughtfulness, who loves to pair blueberries with her morning coffee, and who makes me feel at peace whenever I am with her, I'm truly forever changed because of your friendship.
Thank you for being the best wombmate and twinner I could ever ask for.
Happy 37th Bubby!

{New Zealand} A Day Fishing the Temuka River

Wednesday, June 07, 2017






This was one of my favorite days on the water when we were in New Zealand over the holidays.
Moll's and I had great success with our guide who helped us land 5 of the 6 fish we hooked.
If you ever get the chance to fly fish in New Zealand your inner river will never be the same.
Mark. my. word.
Happy Wednesday, y'all!
