- February -
Spencer works for Southeastern University and helps to run Ministry Institute, our church internship for young adults! We were so blessed to lead a missions trip to Belize in February! We had no idea what to expect, but we definitely made some lasting memories with some great people!
International Church of the Foursquare Gospel Convention
- March -
Our home church is under the covering of the Foursquare Denomination. I can remember growing up and looking forward to this convention every year. Our friends all lived so far apart and getting together every year was so fun! This last year, it finally came to our district, and in the city of Seattle! I was honored enough to serve and help lead the green room to some incredible leaders!
- March & October -
It’s the happiest place on earth! Spencer told me this year, that at least once a year we need to start going to Disneyland. I almost even got over my fear of the ride that started it all. Maybe next time though.. Who else is craving a Mickey pretzel?
- April & September -
Every year, this is what I look forward to! Thankful that I have a husband who can tolerate my weird quirks. This year, the fair came around for a total of FIVE weeks! Thank you God!
The Life as a Wife Relaunch

True, the blog was already a thing.. but after some more research and some work, I got to redesign our website! It’s all for fun, but excited to see where this hobby can lead! Thanks for your support! Love you all!!
Cle Elum with the Pattons
- May -
I remember when we went out to dinner both having some big news to share… Thankful that even though you have moved away, it’s really not all that far! Visiting the ranch was such a fulfilling trip for us. And it was my first time every shooting a real gun!
Anniversary at Palouse Falls

Reflecting on this year, there is so much to be thankful for! We celebrated our 2 year anniversary with a mini road trip. Thank you to my bestie Lauren for capturing all of these moments for us.

This was our first time ever visiting Joshua Tree! This was such a fun day spent with the Gibbons exploring a new place. Thank you for inviting us and helping to make another great memory for this year!
McCartin Wedding in Palm Springs
- June -
My sister got engaged and married to an incredible guy! This was such a great memory for us as a family. My family has been going to Palm Springs for over 100 years and has always been a special place for us. Now our memories have grown as well as our family and we couldn’t be more grateful.
This was such a fun year for weddings! So many of our really good friends have gotten married: The McCartins, the Mintons, the Burghers, and the Doughertys!
Making New Friends
- July -
It can be hard to branch out and meet new people. This was something that I really prayed for! I was so thankful to make new friends at Lululemon as well as a new friend in Kate - the genius behind these photos! Thank you all for your friendships!
- October -
Another great Halloween in the books! My family never really celebrated Halloween growing up. Trying to embrace a little Nakamura tradition, and if I must say, it’s going pretty well. Bonnie and Clyde was a great last minute idea this year!
- Coming Soon -
So thankful looking back at all the memories made with people that I love! This was a wild year! Looking forward to 2019 and all the new adventures life will bring.
