Here’s to 2015


Even though it’s already mid-January, I’m still in ‘wrapping up Christmas 2014’ mode (i.e. I have a few Christmas New Years cards left to write and I just finished editing a batch of photos from Christmas and New Years – posted here). While it may be too late for resolutions, here’s to being more like this guy guy in 2015… Cheers!



We’re moving! Luke has been offered a job in the beautiful city of Ann Arbor so we’ve decided to sell the house and try Ann Arbor on for size. We’ll be moving at some point this summer so fingers crossed the house sells soon.

There are things I’ll miss about Kalamazoo… like the Alamo, Bells, and Waterstreet …but mostly hearing people laugh when I tell them where I live.

Addison Elizabeth

On February 21, my sister (with a little help from my brother-in-law) had her baby: Addison Elizabeth. And last weekend, I got to meet her! She’s a little nugget. She doesn’t do much other than eat and sleep but Connor is already trying to teach her some dance moves. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the weekend (more photos posted over here)…



If you’ve been looking for pictures of what Bear and I have been up to (since Luke doesn’t like to be photographed) check out my feed on Instagram ( The quality of the photos is pretty terrible since I’ve been using the camera on my phone. If you’re on Instagram and I’m not already following you, leave your username in the comments.


Winter wonderland

It has been snowing almost every day for the past week or two. I snapped a couple photos of some window frost the other morning. I also posted pictures from our fall travels to Flickr awhile back, in case you’re stuck indoors on your computers, too.
