Let me start by saying that I am not a huge fish fan.  I want to like it.  I’m a Northwest girl.  Fish is our thing!  It’s healthy and good for me.  My husband is a fly fisherman and catches trout, then makes it this big ritual to clean it, put it on the grill, [...]

Recently I blogged about my latest fascination with Acai Berry Bowls.  Since I often follow the Trim Healthy Mama healthy eating lifestyle, this means I can’t mix fats and carbs.  The concept of this eating plan is that your body runs best when it is only burning one fuel at a time.  So it’s best to [...]

I’m sure you’ve heard of them unless you’ve been hiding under a health food rock.  You’ve probably had one.  You may even be addicted.  It’s surprising, these Acai bowls.  When I had my first one, I thought, “Huh… yes, really good, but worth all of the hype and the cost?”  I wasn’t so sure.  But [...]

Around August I start panicking. The fully stocked back-to-school shelves in Target remind me that the close of another summer looms. I spin the rolodex of summer activities in my head – have we done everything the kids wanted to do? What about what I wanted to do? Has it been meaningful? Fun? Have we [...]

Struggling to stay awake, my head rested on the palm of my hand, my elbow barely holding them both up as it perched on the hard surface of the desk. My teacher, a short, bald, athletic man sat in the front of the room, droning on about this war, that general, and these periods in [...]

My mom’s first cousin, Shauna, met a Brit during her college years at the University of Oregon who happened to get a job as a trainer for the national rugby team in Melbourne, Australia. So our beloved American Shauna became Australian Shauna, with a unique blend of an American/Australian accent.   We’ve stayed very close over [...]

Moms – You are the difference-makers. Change agents. Heroes. What you do every day – the hugging, working, teaching, organizing, praying, carpooling, cleaning, playing, laughing, crying, serving, and giving – it changes the world by deeply impacting those right at your kitchen table. We see you. We like you. We know you – because we [...]

My husband is a very thoughtful gift giver.  Because “gifts” is not one of his love languages, he has to work at thinking of something that would make another person feel cared for and valued.  He often says, “take the money you would buy me a gift with and buy one for ____________ (fill in [...]

I just got back from climbing one of the world’s tallest peaks, Tanzania’s Mt.Kilimanjaro with One Million Thumbprints.  Fifteen women summited on International Women’s Day on behalf of women in war zones, specifically Syria, South Sudan, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It was a fantastic experience overall.  I did quite a bit of reading [...]

*I wrote this post in my head during the hours I was climbing Mt.Kilimanjaro with One Million Thumbprints on summit day.  When I got back, I typed it out. **Almost all of the pictures in this post were taken by fellow climber, Chelsea Hudson, a talented photographer, and beautiful soul. __________________________________________________________ Fifteen pairs of boots hit [...]
