Finished

What do you think of when you hear or see the word finished? I think of following through, being done, finally, and what can I do next? Although I don’t have any projects coming up, I am so happy to have finished the last one I did. I bought this table a long while back…

Explorers

Chance and I are so patiently waiting for the snow to melt. We cannot wait to find more sheds than we did last year! For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about (I’m not sure if you’ve been living under a rock or what), sheds are antlers that have fallen off…

Flying Time!

Time really does fly. I’ve been saying to myself for the last… month, that I would update my blog and post pictures! It’s getting to be the middle of February and I have done no such thing as updating. Ha! My bad. Anyway, here’s what has been happening in the start of the new year!…

Twenty Eighteen

2017 was a whirlwind of events. A few great milestones: I graduated college in May, I got married to my best friend in September, and I got a state job in December! Sure, things took a little time but everything fell into place as they should have. I couldn’t be happier! Chance and I rung…

Food, and Family. Most Important.

Christmas was a success! Chance and I went to Idaho to spend the holiday with my mom, brother, and some other family. It’s always weird, to me, to drive back through my old hometown. It’s like, “Oh, I lived here for 18 years before.” I’m so used to being in Montana, it’s just weird. Nonetheless,…

Merry Christmas from the Merrill’s

Well, you know what they say: It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I’ve been so excited and in the spirit by getting the Christmas tree up, decorating, and baking treats! I wanted to do what my mom has always done for neighbors. And that’s bake all the goods and give them out! I…

New Job / Another Hobby

I started my new job last Wednesday, the 6th. I am a Client Service Coordinator for the Department of Public Health and Human Services, for the State of Montana. Phew! In other words, I work at DPHHS for the State. I try to spare that mouthful of a title when I explain to people what…

Traditional Weekend

This weekend C, his family, and I went to Fairmont Hot Springs Resort near Butte, Montana. It was so fun! In this hotel is this amazing Christmas tree. It’s outrageously filled with lights, ornaments, and tinsel. During our stay, we went to the hot pools. C and his family are all about the extra hot…

Newlyweds
