Wow what a whirlwind past couple of weeks!! It has been fun filled and eventful - we celebrated one year in the house on July 10th and I can hardly believe it has already been that long.  How the time flys  ... 

We had a fun summer date night at the drive in with the trunk popped on my car and unlimited drinks and snacks from home. Drive-ins are the sweetest makes me wonder why they are so rare!  We stayed and watched both movies in the double feature which made for a late night, the second one didn't end until 2 in the morning!
I went to my girlfriend Jens bachelorette party in keystone last weekend and had a ball at the wine and jazz fest!  It was a silly weekend filled with all my Kenny's girls and lots of laughs :)
There is also a little girl in our family that is almost here... Shanda is going to be induced In one week, unless the baby decides to come sooner!! I got to go down for her baby shower on Friday and it was awesome to see her, my mom, and Carlene 💛💛💛 love them all so much and I can't wait for baby to get here!!!
This weekend was Arts Picnic! Our favorite show of the year.  We had so many new pots and pieces we were excited to show and it was a huge success this weekend!  Thanks to all of our wonderful fans, friends, and family!!! We feel so lucky to be a part of the art community in greeley and very grateful for all the support! We ❤️ You!
Feeling tired and inspired to make some more pots right now, time to get out into the studio :)

Summer So far...

has been pretty rad!  we have been fitting in lots of fun time and outside time and together time, all things I love :)  

I got to do the BB again this year (that makes 3 in a row!) with these fabulous ladies…

Girl Power!
Gma and Gpa Almond were in town all weekend and got to come up to greeley and visit and of course the race was on memorial day.  so much fun keeping the tradition alive - there were some great chik-fil-a cow costumes this year :)

We have had some fun BBQ's with all our pals, nothing better than soaking up the sun and eating some good grilling.  it is so fun to see Ollie grow up with all the guys around.  he wants to be right in the action playing with them!  whether it's soft ball, or water guns, or volleyball he is already getting the hang of chilling with the cool dudes haha

I also had a fun adventure to glen wood springs!  I drove my honda over the mountain to do a craft show called strawberry days in June.  My girlfriend Jen grew up in Glenwood springs so me and my other friend Rachel all stayed at Jen's parents house for the weekend.  It was absolutely beautiful and we had so much fun!!  I am so lucky to have awesome friends that would come to support and help me run the booth all weekend.  It was an amazing trip and we decided to pick a new town every summer and try a new show!  

July 4th weekend mom and dad came up to greeley to go to the Stampede and see Big and Rich in concert with us - It was fun to hangout! and we got to give them a taste of our favorite pizza place in town, Roma.

We also celebrated our one year anniversary in the house last week - how the time has flown!!  

And the kiln will be firing non-stop as we get ready for our favorite show of the summer, greeley Arts Picnic.  It is exciting to have new work that we are both happy with!  Jared has taken his retro video game passion and turned it into amazing cup and plate designs along with really cool 2-point perspective drawings on plates!!

I've been playing around with more deers and doilys and enjoying special orders!  I also got into a local co-op gallery called Madison and Main and am excited to be a part of a local group of artists.  I will get to work the gallery for 3 shifts a month and hopefully get to know the patrons as well :)

It has been a bit of a ramble about everything going on but hopefully this post makes for a good summary!  hope summer is treating you right, hugs and love XOXO
