Week 20 ~ In Memory...

Jefferson Barracks has a peaceful serenity to its grounds, walking amongst the hundreds of thousands of men and women who have fought for our freedom. It's emotional to say the least. My mom and I were just a couple of the hundreds of people gathered there today, it couldn't have been a more beautiful day to remember all who have given their blood, sweat and tears. Thanks to all!

Week 19 ~ Happy Hula Birthday Katie!

It doesn't seem like 7 years ago that my little buddy was brought into this world. She is one of the coolest kids I know - smart, loving, creative and super funny (I am wee bit biased)! It's exciting to see her growing up and developing into who she will be as an adult, I just hope a part of her will always need her Aunt Kelly.

Week 18 ~ Seattle, WA

Welcome back to part 2 of our travel photos. The last stop on our trip was Seattle, WA, I am glad we had the chance to stay a few days as I have always wanted to visit. I found an awesome deal that included 6 of the most popular Seattle tourist sites for $59! A few different cities have them so if you are planning a trip, check this site out -

The Walla Walla ferry from Bremerton, WA
This is such a beautiful way to enter the city, we were able to see the entire Seattle sky line at once.

Gorgeous view of the city.

 I <3 Marinas, there is a elegance to them.

Week 17 ~ Oregon!!

Hi! The hubby & I  are back from vacation and have a ton to share with you. Our first stop on our journey was Portland, Oregon & then spent two days traveling the the Pacific Coast Hwy 101 up to Washington. I whole heartedly fell in love with Oregon, of what we seen there wasn't one thing I didn't adore about this gorgeous state! Below are some of the highlights from our trip:
