A Forgotten Post

personal Travel

I’m not sure how it all went down.  I think I just too busy and shifted the personal stuff aside.  So I’m now finally putting up a blog about Thanksgiving 2010.  Really its more about a trip we took out west and more importantly what we saw and captured.  A bit forgotten, a bit late, but here it is.

This past Thanksgiving we decided to visit my grandparents in Palm Desert.  Their main home is up in Seattle, but in the wintertime they re locate to the warmer parts.  It’s been years since I’ve been to Palm Desert, last time I was in high school.  It was awesome to go back with a new set of eyes, and to bring Eliot along too.  It was a short visit, but we made the most of it.  The day after Thanksgiving we ventured out to explore some of the desert.  I get excited by new scenery.

At one point we did get stopped at a Border Patrol checkpoint, guess who forgot their passport?  Luckily he didn’t fit the profile.

Hearty Mexican food for lunch, and beer of course.

Finally! The Holidays!
Whew! So my lack of updating is due to our move to Sunny FL! Well....actually we arrived in FL in the midst of a cold snap, and it's actually been colder here than Seattle (not even joking like 29 degrees).So I've been seriously busy trying to organize furniture for a house so we can stop looking like we're just squatting here with our mattress on the floor. More on Florida later, all I'll say is that we're here, we love the house we're renting and there's lots to share but that's for another post on a different night, including some news on going back to school.How bout those holidays? 5 countries in 3 weeks!We started our trip from ...

It's been a week since we got back from our holiday in England. My husband was away from home for 2 months. I took these photos before he left. We had such a lovely time in England, which is a separate post completely, but part of me was really looking forward to getting back home, to our home.Tea on our porch.Constant smell of sunscreen.Sipping cold beers on the boat.Playing in the sand.Thinking there isn't enough wind to sail, but going anyways.This is what summer looks like in our home in Florida. And although the heat and humidity are intense, somehow we find ways to enjoy it all.Zoë :: Double Exposure...

(kav-eh-na)A boy. A lovely, sweet cheeked, kissable baby boy. It's been 4 weeks since this guy came onto the scene, and I would be a liar to try to describe it as complete bliss. It has come with A LOT of challenges that neither one of us were prepared for at all. But we love this little person more than I can describe.When I was about 22 weeks pregnant we went for the anatomy scan where they check all the vital organs and you can find out the sex of your baby if you choose. At this scan we found out that our little person (not yet knowing if he was a boy or a girl) had a problem with one of his kidneys. This triggered other s ...
