Walking away from 2008

Thank you 2008 for being such a great year. I feel like there is so much that changed and I have been so blessed this year. Here are some highlights

*I got married
*We had the best honeymoon in Hawaii ( Hanama Bay I love you)
* We moved to Portland with all of our belonging shoved in the back of the car. Good thing Cody is good at tetris is was so strategically packed
*Our parents came to visit and loved it
* for the first time I feel like I am being true to myself
* I've gotten to the point that I just want to do what I want even if I'm fearful of failing
*I've erased all my time limits I had about my life and just trusting that God know when and where I need to be in my life
* For the first time in my life I had a white Christmas

I'm excited about what next year has in store for us and I wish every one a Happy New Year.

Love, Leslie

I love deers and fawns

I was super inspired my this amazing artist last night her work is seriously so unique and amazing I just fell in love with it. So I decided to make a Miss Van inspired stencil of a baby fawn... Here it is

But this is where the story gets better Cody and I stumbled into the baby fawns dad at the sporting good store. I mean sure he's made out of rubber and his face is a bit scratched up but he's still cute. Cody says they use these deer "dummies" to practice shooting which made be a little sad. Shhh don't tell the baby that.

But at least I got to take a picture with it.
See ya

my family

I miss these guys a lot today.  

I'm feeling a little under the weather today and all I want is my mom. Somehow moms have this way of making you feel better always. Husband takes care of  me pretty well though so I really can't complain. 

I'm off to rest and maybe have some tea.

I wanna go back to bed

Oh Husband how I would much rather be with you today than at stinkin' ol' work. Today was so tough getting up from my comfy warm bed to the cold damp Portland air. Trudging through the icy streets all to be locked up this tiny room they call an office. Well at least I have something to look forward to come home to... Husband I love you I hope you feel better.

Merry Christmas Charlie Brown!!!!!!!!!!

Merry Christmas to everyone. Here is a picture of our Charlie Brown tree tiny and perfect. This is our first Christmas married and away from our families. Although I miss them it really is great to make our own traditions and memories together. I was surprised after coming home from work (Yes I did work Christmas eve.) to dinner set, candles lit and Christmas music playing. I love my husband.
