Wordless Wednesday: Hot Chocolate Season Has Begun

… and soccer season continues. I don’t think I’ve taken a photo of them in anything other than a soccer jersey over the past 6 months.

Local Portland Tip: The hot chocolate from Coffeehouse Northwest on Burnside is so good that I felt guilty giving it to my children – like I was sharing some sort of elicit drug. There were exclamations of “This is SO good, mum!” and “this is REAL chocolate” while their little eyes sparkled in delight. I think we’ll be back.

Wordless Wednesday: Wonderball

Last weekend I was afforded the opportunity to volunteer as a photographer at the Children’s Cancer Association’s Annual Hero Gala. The theme for this year was Wonderball which lent itself to a fantastical carnival atmosphere filled with stilt walkers, acrobats, carnival games, face painting, a steampunk band, a marching band and so much more. It was a fabulous event that raised a lot of money for an organization that helps give joy to so many people who are going through the darkest times of their lives. I feel honored to be able to have contributed to this cause in my own small way.
