Well, we moved from Seattle to Oregon and couldn’t be more pumped on it! And we actually stuck around this summer and tried to settle into our new life in Central Oregon – house remodeling, adjusting to new work schedules, exploring the immediate area with friends and family… it’s been extremely busy but lots of fun as well! More below…

Endless renovation projects… this house is gonna take a while… but it’s got epic potential! We bought a house in the Old Farm section of the Old Mill. It’s the best of both worlds, we have a half acre right in town and awesome neighbors! Most of our neighbors we’ve known for the last decade and all have kids around the same ages – what luck!!! Best neighborhood we’ve ever lived in hands down. We also started doing a few small projects on the property, one of which is camp circle for friends to come and visit and camp in our yard.

We hiked into Bagby Hot springs, such a rad experience, and then jammed over to Portlandia to check out some protests going – what a crazy world we live in. Courtney published a few articles about these protests: Portland and Seattle

Some of our favorite people, Carly & Amos, stopped by for a visit to camp at our camp-circle and to have a day of fun in the area… so we showed them some waterfalls, views and lakeside hot springs.
