A Weekend Alone

Posted on May 31st, 2011 by Jess Life Run/Hike/Bike

You would think that since Brent left over the weekend for a wedding, that I would have managed to get on here and post a new blog. That is not the case as I tried to occupy myself in other ways than just sitting in front of the computer. I needed to be up doing […]


3 Amazing Years

Posted on May 25th, 2011 by Jess Family Life

God has definitely blessed me with these three years of being with Brent. Not only is Brent the best husband that I could have ever asked for, he is my best friend and the one I will spend the rest of my life with. Over the last three years God has been working on my […]


Boise Trip

Posted on May 24th, 2011 by Jess Life Missions

Yes, It was already a couple weekends ago, but Boise was a great trip for multiple reasons. Brent and I left on a Friday morning after a long week of work. We were ready for a day off. We got into Boise and found our hotel with ease. We stayed at the Modern Hotel which […]

The Beautiful Jessica Powell

Today marks the three year anniversary for Jess and I. It both seems a long and short while ago that we were betrothed on a beautiful Saturday afternoon, one of two for the month of May that year. With each passing day, I have become more in love with my wife. I am great full […]

It is that time of year again when you start waking up to the sunlight streaming into your bedroom window. I wish that was the case for me these past two weeks, but I have still been getting up too early. As I write this, it is still early in the morning at about 6:40. […]


Finally ~ Heat, Running, and Photography

Posted on May 11th, 2011 by Jess Life Photo/Video Run/Hike/Bike

Finally the sun is shining and the snow is not falling. Brent and I enjoyed a nice forty minute run last night with no snow or rain, just the sun. It was 54 degrees. On Friday, we will be headed to Boise where it is suppose to be in the 70′s. Not too sure how […]


Come and Gone

Posted on May 10th, 2011 by Jess Family Life

Brent’s parents spent their first visit here with us being very busy as there was a lot going on. We had an award ceremony, a college open house, graduation/party, and Mother’s Day. It was great to have them here and involved in everything, but it would have been nice to have one day to relax […]


He Did It!

Posted on May 9th, 2011 by Jess Family

Brent did it! He finally graduated from college and I am very proud of him. It may have taken a while to get through, but God had a plan. Everything is coming together and I am so glad that that stage of our lives is over. We woke up fairly early on Saturday morning to […]

So, here is a load of pictures for the events┬ápreceding, during and after the graduation ceremony. This is also the debut for pictures from our new toy, a Nikon D7000 with the 55-300 lens. I don’t have the energy to put my deeper thoughts into this, but rest assured that I will add some as […]


Outstanding Senior

Posted on May 6th, 2011 by Jess Family Life

The Powell parents arrived safely yesterday afternoon. It was just in time for Brent and I to head back to work after lunch, but at least we were able to show them around our place and let them get settled for a moment. After work, I headed up to campus to celebrate Brent’s achievements in […]
