This has been a year of nesting, growing our family, expanding the garden, sinking our roots deeper down into our homestead and savoring where we are at in life.
Our tiny 700 square foot house is just the way we want it. Cozy, warm, and designed to fit our style.

Juniper has turned our life upside down in the most terrific way. Every day there is something new to learn, discover and explore. I can’t remember what life was like before her, and don’t really want to.
After completing my masters in landscape architecture degree, I am working as a landscape designer in Portland turning people’s garden visions into realities. I’m looking forward to a lifetime of building on my plant knowledge and honing my design skills. It is so exciting to get started down the career path.
There are no crystal-clear goals for the year ahead. The seeds have already been planted in our garden, with my garden writing, our family and my profession. I would love 2013 to bring me more of the same please. Just keep it comin’…
