We hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!
We spent the day at Camp Hi Ho fishing, playing outside, eating, and relaxing with friends.
Tim also caught his first large mouth bass on the fly!
What was the highlight of your weekend?

{Something Amazing}

Thursday, July 02, 2015


While walking this week a stranger with a British accent asked us
"if we wanted to see something amazing?"
He then showed us this hummingird's nest made of spider webs, lichen, and moss.
Inside was filled with two eggs the size of jelly beans.
This morning was the first time we got to see the mama up close!
I'm thankful for another reason to look forward to my morning walk with Brave and
for sweet childhood memories of watching hummers on the back deck at the lake
with Twinner and our Grandma Anne.
Happy Thursday, brave ones!

{Wade Lake} Ennis, Montana

Tuesday, June 30, 2015






Camping at Wade Lake in Ennis, Montana was truly magical!
We woke up by the water and had a slow morning.
Becca made fruit quesadillas and we drank coffee before hitting the road for the Tetons.
I'm so grateful for my time with these women and with sweet August.
Their presence was easy and simple.
Just like the river!
Happy Tuesday, y'all.

Nothing says take me to the mountains like a log cabin.
So thankful to have spent a couple of days here while in Montana.

{Gallatin River} Montana

Hitting the salmon fly hatch on the Gallatin was a blast!
It was also good to be on the river with Wes & Alex again.
We landed a cutty and a handful of browns and rainbows.
If you've never fly fished in Montana before add it to your bucket list!
It's amazeballs.

{Gratitude Lately}

Wednesday, June 24, 2015


Lately I've been thankful for a full quiver of cukies.


For new adventures with these two.


For buzzing bees.


For table forts.


For a healthy garden.


For date nights here with Tim.


And for all things pickled.
Here's to gratitude and how it turns everything into enough.
Happy Wednesday, y'all.
What have you been thankful for lately?


{Happy Papa's Day!}

To the man who loves her effortlessly, plays with her tirelessly,
and regularly reminds her to live up to her name, 
Happy Papa's Day. 
You are the best dad I know!

{A Papi's Love}

Saturday, June 20, 2015





There's nothing quite like a Papi's love for his granddaughter.
Happy {almost} Father's Day, Papa.
The way you love on Brave is better than a Griswold #8 with a side of Banana Bread French Toast.
Love you,
Em

Thoughts : When there are no words, bang it out.
Music is powerful.
Happy Friday, y'all!

Dear Brave, this is the part of each day when you eat your dinner with a sand shovel and put black beans down my bra before giving you a bath. Being your mama humbles me each day but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Not even a beer or nap on the kitchen floor at 5pm.

Dear Laundry Cart, every afternoon you turn into a shiny red wagon and a rocket ship. Thanks for reminding me that imagination makes anything possible. 

Dear Twinner, this was the moment last Sunday walking out of church that I thanked baby Jesus for your glue gun skills. Thank you for making Bravey the only bow she's kept in her hair longer than 5 seconds.
Happy Wednesday, y'all!
