An Update On Us

I revamped my “About” section this week and turned it into a post, this time adding a fresh social media pic, new details about my crazy days as a government reporter and what really happened in the events that led me to become a stay-at-home mom.

FEST4ALL Make Music Day Gig Harbor: An Enchanting Summer Occassion

I don’t know whether it was the collective energy of goodhearted people finally able to gather, the airy mix of melodies mingling in the breeze, or the much-anticipated warmth of actual sun on our skin, but Uptown Gig Harbor’s second annual FEST4ALL Make Music Day Gig Harbor on June 21 had the unmistakable feeling of summer.

And my family couldn’t be more excited.

Walking the Tacoma Narrows Bridge

This year, the kids and I walked across the Tacoma Narrows Bridge – something I’ve been wanting to do since we moved here!

After weeks of rain, we saw a moment of sunlight and dry skies. So with a skip, hop, and one possibly illegal parking spot later, we went for it!

And now I can say with certainty that the bridge walk was absolutely incredible for us, but only after I discussed a few safety rules with the kids. You’ll see why in a minute.

Read on for all the deets on how we walked the Tacoma Narrows Bridge from the Gig Harbor side.

We Bought a House!

Escrow closed on our new Gig Harbor property yesterday and we’re officially homeowners again!!

It took four months of looking in person, 11 months of looking online 🤪 and dozens of blue shoe bootie/mask-covered Covid showings to find this home — but we did it! Thank you for sharing in all of it with us 🏡.
