Welcome August

taking a moment to find joy in the little things



My girls have been planning a Water Wars party for at least 6 months, and it took place last week. Eight girls, lots of water and our backyard for 4 hours.

I had the opportunity to travel to Peru in 2010 and met some amazing people. One of them was Cecilia, and she was a fantastic (and fun) translator for our group. She happened to be passing through Portland this past week, and I was thrilled that we got to meet up for coffee on Sunday morning. 

At one point during the water wars I went out to clean up a bit and found this clever way the kids came up with to identify which cup of jello was theirs...


  1. The morning glories are glorious!! Water wars sounds awesome!!

    PS I'm taking over Little Things Thursday for Kim! Come join me at next week!!

  2. Adorable identification tags! Happy August!

  3. I always love to see your photos - they're always a delight!
