I'm pleased to tell you Lustre is up and open! My long time girl friend, Kelly, and I have talked about making jewelry together for about 10 years. She recently moved back down to Southern Oregon and we decided to take the plunge together. It's been very challenging to find the time, but I love creating and have so much fun with jewelry. I feel like a little bit of my personality goes into each piece.

Please check us out and let me know what you think!

New Camera!

Hopefully you have noticed how great the pictures have been lately. Clarity, color, sharpness. Well, it's not me, it's my new camera! Jon bought me an amazing digital slr and I love it! Life is super full as ever, and I plan on digging in and learning about all the great functions on my camera this summer. For now I am very content to steal a few minutes to snap snap a few pictures here and there. This morning Hudson was walking out in the garden in a felt cowboy hat so I put school on hiatus for about 10 minutes to take a few photos. I have dreamed of owning a great camera since high school so this is a dream come true!  


 Want to know what Hudson was doing between snaps? This is it. How cute is he?

First Soccer Game!

The girls had their first soccer game this morning, and what a game it was! The team did an excellent job, and won 5 - 1! Macy beamed the entire game, and even skipped a few times on the field just for the sheer joy of playing soccer. Natalie was quite the little go-getter. She had major hustle and wanted the ball! Mom and Dad joined us for the game and afterward took us all out for a celebratory lunch. Great job Girls!
