{Wakey, Wakey}

When you wake up in a tent with marshmallow dreads and chocolate still on your cheeks from roasting s'mores the night before, you know it's gonna be a good day.
Happy Saturday, y'all!

"We're going on a trout hunt, we're gonna catch a big one.
What a wonderful day! We're not scared ...
Sometimes you can't go over it, you can't go around it,
you gotta go through it. 
Keep pressing onward, brave ones.

To the yellow lab (and part billy goat) who ate my wading boots, our entryway rug,
and dining room curtains, Happy 5th Birthday!
You've learned how to walk off leash and you rarely ever bark.
You truly have grown into the best family pup.
We love you sweet River Casserole Loerke!

I need to watch this every Monday.
Did you make your bed this morning?

{Gratitude Lately}

Monday, September 11, 2017


Lately I've been thankful for a happy Gorge pup.


For a homemade sourdough loafer traded for fresh eggs.

For a daughter who loves to dress herself.



For mid-week time on the river.


And for the last honey harvest of the year!
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
Happy Sunday y'all.
What have you been thankful for lately?

First you take the graham, then you roast the 'mallow ...
It's that time of year, y'all. 
Happy Fun Friday!

Brave is a gift giver.
Normally she hands me something she's found outside after I pick her up from school.
Lately, her treasures have helped me see what she finds valuable.
Oh, how the mind and heart can shift with age ...
Thank you, Bravey Train, for always drawing me back to the simple.
Happy Wednesday, y'all!

{It's Here! It's Really Here}

We're not ready for fall. Nope.
Happy first day of September, y'all!

When you've spent half the summer believing you're a mermaid you've won the lottery in her mind.
Happy September Eve!
Here's to a new month and a new season!

{Iron & Wine} Waterfront Wednesday

Thursday, August 31, 2017


I couldn't ask for a better way to end a really challenging month.
August, you were not my favorite but you taught me much about grief and loss.

Happy September Eve!
