I've given one to my Mom every Christmas since I was a kid.  
She's developed quite the collection.

Who would buy these?!


I mean, other than Adam, of course.

Handmade stockings!


"Handmade" means it was made by hand, with love at first, and with a lot of swear words and violence near the end.

It's like Butta!

Thanksgiving Centerpiece

Table Centerpiece

It's terrible compared to anything you'd do, I know, but we got so many gourds from the farm share, I basically didn't have anywhere else to put them.

Japanese Friendship Garden

This is over the entrance of the Japanese Friendship Garden near my house.  It means Heron Phoenix Garden.  The Heron is the bird symbol of Himeji City, which built the garden.  Ro Ho En is a name to symbolize the friendship between the two cities.

Pretty new makeup brushes

CoWorkers of my friend Emily were going to throw all of these away, but she saved them for me.  I made BANK!  Can't wait to flip through these for buttons.

Mice in Tina's kitchen

Mice in Tina's Kitchen!


It's a little blurry because I took it while I was driving.
This guy was just casually riding this bicycle down Central Ave. in downtown Phoenix.  As I was taking this picture I thought to myself, "Moments like this are the reason Loren and I have this blog."  How do you think he starts going on it?  It's WAY taller than he is...???
