Birthday Festivities!

Birthdays aren’t typically something Jarred and I go to extremes for. Sure we like them, and use them as an excuse to spend time with friends and family whenever the calendar indicates another one has approached. But for the most part we reserve our excessive commemorations for our anniversaries. However, this year we deviated from […]

A Heartfelt Homecoming!

The precise date and time of Shawn’s return back to America, specifically Washington, was up in the air pretty much until he finally landed on US soil. Kelsey’s educated speculation was the end of August or the first of September, but apparently it’s always subject to change. As the homecoming approached the date became concrete, […]

Weekend Warriors

Jarred and I were both born and raised in Oklahoma. We’re talking rural, as far as the eye can see, farmland type of Oklahoma. Needless to say, hiking was not a hobby that occupied our free time. It wasn’t until our second visit to Seattle a little less than two years ago that we actually […]

Deep down I knew that owning a tiny home was unrealistic for us, but it was fun for me to dream (and joke with our […]

Move in Day!

We set our alarms for 5:30 a.m., which thankfully felt more like 7:30 since our bodies were still operating on Central Time Zone. We knew jbabe’s 4Runner wasn’t big enough to haul a couple of our big ticket items from our storage pod to our apartment so we had previously gotten permission from Shawn, Jarred’s […]

The Witts move west!

After selling our house, visiting TK in Amarillo to say goodbye, celebrating our departure with some amazing friends and hugging our families we piled into jbabe’s 4Runner and began our 2,000 mile journey west. Anyone who knows me knows that I hate to drive. Leaving my car in Oklahoma was one of the most appealing […]
