We’ve been working on a little project in Southeast Nebraska… a SUMMER CABIN!

Making trips every chance we can to work on it here and there has taken up a lot of our weekends, but a HUGE thanks to our family who has helped us so far….even if it’s just to watch Violet.  Our goal is to have it enclosed before the snow flies and the foundation was poured last weekend!! I feel like it’s a realistic goal. We chose our colors (I’ll share some cabin inspiration soon…) and all the materials are on order. It’s feeling real.


and here’s Violet playing at Grandpa Jim and Grammy Jana’s house…

Ryan’s best friend got married last weekend. We never thought we’d see the day!

I feel slightly bad about this…  ; )

But we COULDN’t be happier for JJ and his Amanda. She has a heart of gold, this one!

This is a sweet story about a little girl named Livya, who, last Summer was told she was going to be a big sister…. to TWO babies.

She had, indeed, expected her ‘surprise’ to be a new doll perhaps… a bike. Something to unwrap.

‘We though you wanted to be a big sister?’ said her parents.

NO! I want to be an artist,’ said Liv.

But now…  TWO babies, a big move, a flooded basement, and a year later, Liv is feeling better about things.

Willie, Rebecca, and their little kiddos visited our sweet little Wahoo for their summer vacation. I think they’ll be back! They traveled from Southern Iowa and I think just google searched cabins? And stumbled acrossed Spencer Hill Cabin. It’s so beautiful… I photographed Carrie and Gunnar’s wedding here last fall. I highly recommend you consider renting it! Pretty perfect.

I ran to my car in the pouring rain right after this shot… It really let loose!

she’s definitely into crawling everywhere… loves to practice her loudness and can eat a whole cup of frozen blueberries in one sitting. Her 1 daily task is moving all the dining room chairs back and forth to make sure they’re in good working order. I think she is now scared to open drawers after getting stuck, so that’s good for now.

Arrow’s loving the backyard! All fenced and landscaped.

Next task: raised garden beds. Hopefully by snow? haha

2 raised beds here…

and Ricky and Ashley (after years and years and years of dating) are finally getting married labor day weekend!

Ricky is Ryan’s eldest nephew who lives in KC and loves baseball.

Vicki is not only our sort of neighbor… but also my sister in PEO and my ‘Grandmother’ in Wildtree. I’ve LOVED getting to know her this past year. She gives 100% of herself to her family, her job(s), and her friends. She has a BIG birthday coming up and there will be some Outlander marathoning. Just saying. Vicki.. we HEART you!

(and your red-heads)
