A Weekend of Frozen Lakes

A Weekend of Frozen Lakes

In our resolution to make it outside more frequently, we decided to spend the first full weekend of the year doing just that. It’s been exceptionally cold recently in the Puget Sound region, so getting out has been interesting. We had painfully beautiful weather all week, which led to a lot of pining for the freshly snow-covered mountains that stood up razor-sharp against the clear sky. Though of course, as Friday gave way to the weekend, the clouds rolled in, and everything became grey again. That’s January in Seattle.

2016 Recap

2016 Recap

Happy New Year! 2017 is finally here, thank goodness! While 2016 wasn’t the best year anybody could remember in a lot of ways, for us personally there were a ton of good things about it. Here’s a quick recap of some of those things!

2015 in Review

2015 in Review

2015 was a big year for us in a lot of ways. We didn’t start out the year with a ton of lofty goals beyond “get married” and “don’t ruin ourselves financially,” so I think we did pretty well in that aspect. 2 for 2 so far. I guess my other goal was to update the blog more regularly, and I only updated 10 times (11 if I actually publish this one in 2015…(haha! didn’t happen)), so that was a bust. It’s an easy goal to beat for 2016 though!

Happy New Year, Y’all!

Happy New Year, Y’all!

Happy 2013! We started this blog a long time ago to chronicle our adventures. Well, so far that hasn’t happened, but this year is different than last year! We learned a lot last year, mostly by going on enough weekend adventures to make our coworkers and friends jealous (“You always do so many fun things. I wish I did that.” “It’s easy, just go do it!”). We pushed the limits of our own stupid sanity and after all of it, we came out with a plan for this year. It’s going to be everything 2012 was, except with less off the bad and more of the awesome.

We have some plans for the year, but we know there will be unplanned adventures along the way:

1. January – snowshoeing/skiing/snowboarding in the Cascades
2. February – Vegas for a weekend
3. March – backpacking in the San Juans
4. April – camp hike camp hike
5. May – camp hike camp hike
6. June – Electric Daisy Carnival in Vegas
7. July – Mt. Rainier, trip to Texas to visit my family
8. August – camp hike camp hike
9. September – West Coast Trail in BC
10. October – camp hike camp hike
11. November – hike hike hike hike
12. December – hibernate.

We’re going to focus this year on getting better, better at all of the things we did last year. We want to hike farther, camp better, cook healthier, see more, explore more, and live more. So we started this year with a good party, a good midnight kiss, a good sleep, a good breakfast, and a good walk along Lake Washington under a beautiful blue sky.

The first decent picture I took this year.

Another resolution of mine: get better at cooking holiday dinners. There’s SO MUCH PLANNING. So many things bake at different temperatures.
