Dry Creek Falls Hike - January 2015 - Part 1

Back on January 3rd, I went on a hike with my friend Sonny, and my dog, Mocha. It was such a fun hike (which I've done before), I had never done it in fog before. Its relatively easy, and not too steep. This week, you'll get to follow throughout the hike in 12 pictures :) Enjoy, and check back Mon-Fri this week for new posts!

Sandy River Delta Park - January 2015 - Part 3

Sunset is a gorgeous time to take a walk at the dog park. Mocha and I normally kill about 1-2 hours walking around. Getting there an hour or 2 before sunset sets that up as a possibility to see gorgeous skies, and light! Even though Mocha is 9 or so, she doesn't act old. On the contrary, shes like a puppy, only with some grey :)

She's my little model..

Mocha is SO happy she's smiling :)

Her, "Okay, can we go now?" face.

Back to what I said about her acting like a puppy: Here she is running into the sunset.

Sandy River Delta Park - January 2015 - Part 2

Like I said earlier, the dog park is SO scenic. There is so much to see around there, with tons of trails and ways to get lost. We've even seen herons fishing in the river, though Mocha scares them away every time.

Sandy River Delta Park - January 2015 - Part 1

Back on January 7th, I decided to take my camera to the dog park with Mocha and I. Its such a scenic area, and we both love to meet new dogs and people. This week you will see our walk through the park! Here is Part 1!

Song and Photograph of the Week - January 12, 2015

Already the THIRD week of the new year. My goodness!! This is also the start of the second week of classes. I am enjoying all of mine so far. One class I am taking is, Writing about Film. It is a 300 level class, and my awesome teacher is probably in her late 60's or early 70's. Guess what movie we are watching first?! FROZEN! Yes, the Disney movie, in a college 300 level course. It's pretty amazing :) What is more fun than watching it in a college class? Watching other Juniors and Seniors that have never seen it, watch it for the first time. It's priceless :)

Staying with the Frozen theme, the song of the week is from one of my favorite parts of the movie. I am a big fan of Olaf (the snowman), he is so cute! So Josh Gad – In Summer is the song of the week :)

I've been trying to be more active on Instagram, both on my personal feed and my business feed! Daily postings are my goal, but with Tue/Thur having work, school, and nanny all in a row, I'm thinking my postings will be 5 days a week. ANYWAY, one of my favorite images I've posted on my personal page was one of Mocha (my dog) running at the dog park. I also added below it another favorite from that day! :) ENJOY!

Song and Photograph of the Week - January 5, 2015

Happy 2015! I am so looking forward to this year. I have some exciting new changes planned for NbDP within the next couple months! One hint is, I am going to be making the client experience more in person! Exciting huh? I think so!

How many of you have New Years Resolutions? I have a few! One goal is to go through all my personal 2013-2014 images and delete the unwanted photos (blurry, multiples, and bad pictures). THEN I need to go through and edit them :) I am done with deleting ALL 2013 images, now all I have to do is edit them. This goal coincides with my Project Life goal. In the summer of 2013 I bought a Project Life scrapbook thing. Its amazing, but I haven't gotten around to putting my pictures in and writing about them. So going through all my images and editing them will help me to feel good about printing and scrapbooking them!

I found a song today that I really like. This song is by Mat Kearney, who was born in Eugene, Oregon. I think that's pretty cool. Mat Kearney – One Black Sheep was released this past December. Go give it a listen!

This past Saturday, I went hiking with a friend I met a few years ago in a design class, up at PSU. Hes local to Gresham, same as me! We finally found a day we were both free to go hiking! We went up to Dry Creek Falls. We were hoping it would not be raining up there. Thankfully it wasn't, but foggy? YES. It was so gorgeous! The falls were still frozen, it was so beautiful. Only complaint was that it was cold. It's definitely a hike I would recommend, only 4.4 miles there and back. I couldn't narrow it down to 1 photo. So here are 3! You are the first ones to see these :)

Mocha has a thing about my camera. SHE (almost) NEVER LOOKS! Usually she's looking away from it, its hilarious. But, also frustrating because I want to see her eyes :)

Song and Photograph of the Week - December 29, 2014

I missed posting on Monday, I've been a little consumed with a project for the past several days. This will also be the photograph of the week :) So, after I came back from going on a mission trip in 2010, I bought a quilt kit. It's been sitting under my bed for awhile. Several days ago, I found it again and decided to do it! After lots of frustration, it is done. And I've included the room I've been in working on it. :P I added the big table today for my new project I'm working on.

I hope everyone has a great, safe New Years Eve!
