Serenity…for now

I finally finished Nursing School!  It doesn’t feel quite real, and honestly it’s only the first step in actually being a nurse, but it is still a huge accomplishment.  Before I tackle the next challenge (the national license exam) I am enjoying a bit of a much deserved vacation.  Part of which includes reviewing the pictures I have taken over the past few months.  Granted, I haven’t had a lot of time to snap photos, but my husband did surprise me with a trip to the Japanese Gardens in Portland last month so I thought I’d share some of them with you.

Enjoy!

Pumpkin Patch Part II

On our outing to the pumpkin patch I took so many photos that I couldn’t possibly fit it all into one blog post! This one is dedicated to the flower portion of the pumpkin patch. This particular patch, located on Sauvie Island in Portland, Oregon, is not only a pumpkin patch, but a vegetable and cut flower farm as well. They had some amazing dahlias, zinnias and marigolds that I couldn’t stop taking pictures.

Beret Update

I finished! I thought it would take me longer with all the additional distractions, but it’s amazing what happens when the baby wants to take long naps and goes to bed early and your husband has a business trip.

It is not in the traditional beret shape, which I like. It’s much more boho chic of which I am neither, but that won’t stop me from wearing it.  It actually fits my personality of not having a definitive style.  As an added bonus, it seems so very Portland.  Not the Portland that I grew up with, but what it’s become.  Hopefully I’ll look just as cool wearing it as I think I do, but honestly, I don’t really care.
