Picture This: Week 29, 2014.

Last year, I started a picture-a-day project with the new year. My intent was and is to try and appreciate every day, the good and the bad. I'm posting weekly recaps of the past seven days. It's a fun way to recap the week, and keep me motivated for the next week. By throwing it up to the interwebs, it's a not so subtle reminder to myself that if I'm laying around all week and taking pictures of my feet poking out of a blanket as I watch Netflix for the millionth time, I'm going to bore everyone to sleep. Not that I care, guys. That being said, it's rarely ground-breaking, but I couldn't handle that anyway. It's a log of my life, and a gentle reminder to myself that life is a gift and I should take advantage every day. I don't want to get preachy. If you do this, I want to know so I can nose around. In the least creepy way possible. You can start anytime, too - a new year doesn't have to start on January 1. Steph created one mid-year. Veronica does this as well, but I'm losing faith in her ever updating her blog. Check out my past weeks through the "picture-a-day" topic link on the right.

The flight-seeing float plane was definitely one of the cooler things we did. It didn't offer much in animal spotting, but seeing the mountain peaks and glaciers at eye-level, in addition to landing and walking the floats in the Prince William Sound, was amazing.


July 15, 2014

We flew the red-eye home and were in a weird state on Tuesday, but still managed to get the hammock up. Copper loves it.


July 16, 2014

I started the black hole that is the name-change process on Wednesday with a trip to the Social Security Office and to the DMV. I have a license!


July 17, 2014

Henry was my shadow as I continued to try and figure things out on Thursday.


July 18, 2014


I finally cut my hair on Friday, specifically 10.5 inches, after taking what I consider to be my best passport/serious face picture. 


July 19, 2014


Copper has loved sitting on me on the hammock from the beginning, but sat by himself on Saturday. He now meows next to it, meaning he wants us to pull it down so he can jump on. All by himself. 


July 20, 2014


We're back at it with house projects and making 8 ft boards fit in the car. Slowly but surely.

I decided to post this today instead of my usual reading. I didn't read too many articles the past week, partly due to the honeymoon and party due to the only thing Zach wanted to discuss was Lebron's return to Cleveland. Plus, pictures are more fun, especially when all are out of the normal routine.


July 6, 2014

Monday was the start of the honeymoon with plane delays to start, making our super short layover even shorter. We sprinted between terminals and made all of our original flights, literally being one of the last people on that plane.


July 7, 2014

Hiking the Matanuska Glacier was one of the highlights of the trip. It was incredible.


July 8, 2014

We had a weather day on Wednesday, meaning that our flight seeing plane was canceled for bad weather. We shopped around before hitting some nature preserves and tried the ice cream. It wasn't mind-blowing, but I'm assuming that's because we were in the tourist trap area. We learned Alaska's residents consume the most ice cream per capita!


July 9, 2014

Thursday was our day in Seward, or on the Pacific as we tried to spot whales. It was another terrible weather day with the rain never stopping, so we didn't make it to the ocean. The bay offered lots of wildlife, including sea otters, sea lions, and puffins, so it wasn't a total bust.


July 10, 2014

We drove up to Denali, or more specifically, Healy, on Friday. Taking advantage of the 24-hour light, we took a 3 mile walk at 9 PM. That's Zach holding up a 9 to indicate what time it is. It was so insane. 


July 11, 2014

We took the park bus through Denali on Saturday and spotted so much wildlife, including this caribou that trotted past the bus. Grizzlies, moose, eagles, and pika were also in the mix.


July 12, 2014

Denali is the only national park with a working sled dog team, and you're allowed to meet them! I loved this, and apparently Nuna loved me.

Pig-pig digs for treats and traps herself in boxes while I brush her.

Nails and wine!

Fluffy, the financial advisory.

Decoration day!


July 4, 2014

It still doesn't feel like it happened.

Civil war may have replaced beer pong as the favorite family/friend activity.

Henry loved having us home, but probably mostly because she loved the gift from her mom.

  • You guys. Bread salad. It's all my wildest dreams come true. I also now understand the merits in a mortar and pestle. 
  • Lastly, I'm getting MARRIED today!

My parents stopped by on their way to Pittsburgh and dropped of a pair of the most beautiful adirondack chairs I've ever seen. My aunt and uncle are so generous, and the house now suffers from neglect.

June 24, 2014

I was in Chicago this past week and spent Tuesday with one of my greatest friends. She took me for some of the best Mexican. 

June 25, 2014

I started the escort cards a little late.

June 26, 2014

Flights in the summer.

June 27, 2014

Friday showed progress on the escort card front, but also that embossing was taking a ridiculously long time.

Sleepy Henry.

Home theatre night! Just kidding, no time for that before a wedding.

  • This DIY Emergency Car Kit is easy to assemble and should be traveling with everyone. We don't have one, but will be making two shortly! Everyone can also anticipate them as gifts, I suspect.
