Trail Snail

My husband and I are transplants from Norway currently residing in beautiful Washington State with our daughter and our two adopted Italian Greyhounds (aka nutrias), Wellie and Basil*.

Is this really November??

Happy birthday to me!

JK works for a Large Computer Company¬© and I am making the most of my life as a Green Card-less trophy wife (scratch that! I finally received my Green Card…about a week before I learned that I was finally pregnant, so now I am stay at home mom) by doing my favorite things – hiking, backpacking, trail running, mushrooming, scrapbooking, and attempting to grow edible things in our backyard. My patronus is a marmot.

I made it!

Me and the Arm

This originally started as a scrapbooking blog, but my new hobby obsession, hiking, has pretty much taken over by now. Fear not, faithful scrapbookers; I still make pages…about hiking.

*Our first beloved pup, Bobby, passed away in 2010.
