Sunday Snapshots: Oregonian Wedding, The Walk to End Alzheimer’s, and a blogger meet-up. 

A long time ago I had a series on the blog where I shared more personal items with no real intent behind them other than sharing myself with readers and recording history. I’m getting back into that habit as I feel that it is a great way for you to get to know me! I’d love to hear about what YOU did this past week as well.

This weekend was a whirlwind weekend and it looks like the rest of the month is going to be the same.

Saturday we went to a wedding for a friend of my husband. It was set on a campground in Oregon. The weather was perfect, the beer was delicious, and the crowd was laid back and friendly. We enjoyed the sweet ceremony and delicious BBQ dinner afterwards. The couple even made a custom flag that they put up the flag pole after they wed. Sweet touches like that make me happy.

Mainly, we loved getting to spend time together as a family while celebrating someone else coming together as family. There is just something really special about that!

Today was the busiest day our little family has had in a long while. We started the day working the Walk to End Alzheimer‘s in Portland.

I work in the senior living field and this walk is always a big event for us. My personal experiences combined with my work really make the cause of fighting Alzheimer’s a bit of a passion project for me. I love that my family and friends support the cause as well.

I painted around a ton of faces today and I’m pooped! But, it was so worth it!


After we ran home to get cleaned up from the walk we hopped back in the car to head to one of our favorite play cafes in Portland, Pied Piper!

Catherine, of Ten Thousand Hour Mama, hosted a little blogger and kiddos meet-up at the cafe. I met many local bloggers (and mommas) that I had only met online in the past. They were all so lovely. I wasn’t sure if I was going to make it after such a long morning, but I’m glad I made the trip!


What did you do this weekend?

    Those pictures are so gorgeous! Many of them belong in a frame.

    Also, I was so glad you made it to the family blogger meetup, even though you had such a busy weekend! As always, it was lovely to see you and the kiddos. They are so sweet.

    At times I didn’t know if I’d make it to the gathering, even though I planned it, haha. We spent the weekend in Eugene, and Kiwi didn’t sleep well. Thankfully both she and her older sis slept part of the way back to Portland. Thank goodness for car naps!!!!

      Thanks so much. I swear by the ColorStory app! 😀 I am so glad YOU made it to the meet-up. It wouldn’t have been the same with out you and your beautiful daughters. You were certainly super mom that day.
