Young Love

Posted on August 31st, 2011 by Jess Life

Lately, Brent and I have been addicted to the new Mat Kearney album titled “Young Love.” We had been playing it over and over using Spotify. We ran out to get a few things at Target last week, so I grabbed the CD while Brent was off looking at some technology thingy. We continued walking […]

The Chicken Goodness

Last night, we had some wonderful friends over for dinner. I made mahi mahi tacos, pineapple salsa, and individual apple crisps. With the leftover pineapple salsa, I decided to make pineapple chicken for dinner tonight. I served it with a side of rice, a side of avocados, a dollop of sour cream, and topped it […]

and again...

Friday night Brent and I took off with the Subaru loaded with camping gear and our friends, Scott and Sara Swanson (newlyweds)! We headed south of Bozeman to the Gravelly Mountain Range where we had ran the half at the Madison Marathon. We had been so impressed by the scenery and wanted a chance at […]

Sun Through the Cats

My sister wanted to go on a walk to take pictures on my favorite trail, so of course I asked if I could go along. We started at a different end of the trail than I normally do, which was great because it gave me a new view. I cannot get over how much I […]

Puffed Pancake

I love the mornings as my most amazing husband ever always shows off his breakfast skills. He has no problem coming up with great things to make. As a girl that hardly ate breakfast before her husband came into the picture, I do not know how I could live without it now. It is probably […]

The Cuz

I was lucky enough to have my cousin Jenni come and visit. She arrived on Thursday and was able to stay till today. I have not seen my cousin since Brent’s and my wedding. We had a great time reminiscing, catching up on each others lives, and just having an all out good time. Not […]


Jess’s ABC’s

Posted on August 20th, 2011 by Jess Life Photo/Video

The ABC experiment ended up being more difficult than I had thought. The lens I used turned out to be quit a challenge as there were letters I saw, but was not able to as I could not be far enough away.  Shooting in manual did not seem to be the hard part as it […]

abc's - 16

So….. Jess and I want to be better photographers, and we decided we needed an exercise to hone in our skills. So we decided to spell out the alphabet, in pictures. We thought that this would be simple, but it took us nearly all day to accomplish. So here is my attempt at the ABC’s. […]


Retirement (new shoes)

Posted on August 16th, 2011 by Brent Life Run/Hike/Bike

As most of you may know, Jess and I recently purchased some new running shoes. Jess logged around 1,000 miles of travel, while I estimate around 800 miles on mine. I would like to take the time to say that these miles include hiking as well as running. So here’s to my good ole Brooks Defiance’s and […]

Last night, Brent and I decided to go on another walk with our cameras. We ended up on another part of of Bozeman trail route which gives us an overlook onto Bozeman. It was a great evening for a walk and to take pictures. We later ended up driving home and saw how awesome the […]
