Spring in Leavenworth


A picture perfect first ride of the season a couple weeks ago. Here's the hi-lites from Freund Canyon in Leavenworth.


So, it was more of hike up than a ride up for my tired and out of shape 50 year old body.


I felt no guilt in stopping to photograph the wild flowers.


Somebody has to do it and it wasn't going to be my teenager that was napping at the top waiting for me to get there.




I thought the bike needed a little break. 


Made it to the top, which means "let the downhill fun begin!"

Cabin Decor

We love our time at Poofys to hike, bike, ski and hang out in Leavenworth. We also really love the weekends when we never leave the house.


That pretty blue desk is becoming my favorite corner to catch up on painting in my sketchbook.


My kids say I am a little obsessive about my morning coffee. Between the french press, drip, 3 sizes of Moka pots and the worlds greatest milk frother, your morning will be off to a good start. There's also a pretty good selection of tea and I'm always adding to my mug collection.

Its been a lot of fun curating our collection of art, crafts and thrift store finds at Poofys. My husband and I are both painters, our work is sprinkled through the house. It's pretty cozy.


Perfect spot to start a new book. There is a couple of bookshelves upstairs as well as kids books and games in the bunk bed room.

A quick pit stop for milkshakes and fries...


Stevens Pass, we had to stop to play in the snow.

Fall Weekend Getaway

A few shots from my ladies weekend at Poofy's. A great group of friends, good conversations, amazing food, a walk that turned into quite the hike and time to just hang out at Poofy's Paradise. Thanks ladies for a perfect weekend! 


Always match your car to your surroundings.


The Wenatchee River from the patio of Yodelin Broth. I am always in search of a good patio and this one is definitely the top of the list. We'll be back to sample the food soon.


 It was 70 beautiful degrees down on the river in Plain.

One more amazing meal before we head home.




A quick stop at the foot bridge in Plain.
