Family Time


I have had a great opportunity this summer to spend a lot of time with my family. Its not very often that you get time off of work and school together so we are trying to make the most of it before our precious time is up.

We have traveled around our state quite a bit and realize again what a beautiful state Oregon is. Its got the ocean, mountains, rivers, deserts and much more. Even though we have lived here our whole lives, it is so nice to explore some new places together and discover new things with our children.

I feel like I have come to a point in my life where I realize how important having time together is! I feel so fortunate to have been married for almost 13 years and have 3 beautiful boys. I have always been one to not stress too much about what people think and just live my life. So that is what I am doing, living life - enjoying life! We don't have to wait until we are retired to enjoy it! Enjoy it now while our children still live with us :)
