YouTube Thursdays - New Year's Eve 2020  We've always liked the song, "What are you doing New Year's Eve?" It's  been running through my (Debb) head all morning. Like most of 2020, this year's celebrations will likely be quite different.  This is philosophical time of year under normal circumstan...

 This week, we received two gifts that really touched our hearts. The first, an ornament made by our daughter, Kelsea. At first glance, it looks like piece of plaid material with a gift tag attached. However, there is much more to this story.  The plaid is a piece of material cut from one of my d...
This year, we ordered one of the sought after toys of the season, "The Child Real Moves," from the Disney hit TV show, "The Mandalorians."

Starry Nights and Wide Open Spaces - 10 Acre Lot in the Columbia River Gorge - Pending When we both first walked this property last summer, the Dixie Chicks song “Wide Open Spaces,” played in our heads. We envisioned a potential buyer recognizing the somewhat remote, and gated location as a perfe...
It's the time of year when visions of sugar plums dance in the air. Soft, twinkling lights glow with warmth and good cheer. The clean and invigorating scent of pine trees and branches tickle noses with pleasure.  The holiday season is a favorite at our house. While it's different this year with n...
