A Lovely Year of Finishes


So let me tell you what I've been doing...

Bend for work..

In Bend seeing some June Jaeger beauties

I stopped by a quilt shop QuiltWorks to gaze at some wonderful quilts in their gallery.

Portland, Oregon for work...

Enjoying the good life.

My family came along and we walked nearly the entire downtown.

Voodoo Donuts
And there is a first time for everything

for the first time!
*Next trip is Blue Star for sure*


Registered the teenlet for her first year of high school

Oh no what's it mean

The car feels my pain


And this last weekend we went down to the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.

Amazing weekend at the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument in Oregon.   Best thing our taxes go to.

This is so beautiful and amazing to see in person!
Everyone must GO!
