Sophia colored this picture on this kids coloring site! It is always nice to find a new site for her!

Click on the picture to get to the site, really crappy design, but fun site! I love that I can post her artwork.

Our outside yard and gardening is really coming along this year. Usually, I try to plant a garden, but don't end up with much reward, this year, I haven't yet eaten a tomato from my garden, but there are a lot of green ones in there! Hopefully the sun will make a few more appearances and redden them up. I have been giving tons of zucchini away, I am so grateful to have something growing, yet, someone should've told me not to plant it in my garden box with anything else, it really knows how to take over! My other fruitful plant has been my green beans, those have been just right! Sophia eats them up and says she's "getting healthy", which of course, I LOVE! Here are a few images of the garden and our little area right out the front door! 


I get to walk out my front door to this every morning!

Well, that's all for today!

4 a.m. and blogging

It has been a LONG time since I last posted. I have been pretty busy and I suppose that is somewhat of a good thing. I have been working a lot, and am just not used to this whole 8-5 life! But, I must say, I am getting more comfortable in it and actually really like my job, I just hope I can keep it. My job now is an internship and is supposed to end on September 5th, there is paperwork in the process of approval for me to stay longer, however, but as all large companies go, it is taking FOREVER. So, I have been just patiently waiting to see if I will have a job as of September 6th. 

This internship has done so much for me, I have been exposed to so many new things that, as a designer, I should know. I was able to attend a photo shoot and a press check. I understand the corporate world so much more now, and to top it all off, I have met some wonderful people. They are so helpful and understanding, always willing to help, yet they totally trust me and have confidence in me that I don't even think I have. It has been a great experience either way. 

On another note, Sophia is 5, and she starts Kindergarten on Friday. YIKES! She is very excited to start in a big school. She will still attend an immersion Chinuk school, but she will go to the public school in the morning and attend the immersion school in the afternoon. Her school offers all day, five days a week Kindergarten, so she would be going that often either way. This way she just gets to keep her language aspect. I am so proud of her. Wow.

Well, I am signing off, but I will leave you with a crafty find! I found these from a link off of

Trying to jump on the green train...
