God, marriage and adventure. That just about sums up my life. I just have some things to say about how marriage is amazing and hard and about the adventures my husband and I go on. Enjoy! PS. All pictures on my site and blogs are taken by either me or my husband.

Panel 1


Hello there, I’m Carly. I am a Jesus lover first, a wife second and an adventurer third. My Northern Californian hometown is Chico, but, my husband, our Queensland heeler (pictured below) Frankie, and I made a big move in August 2017 to the Pacific NorthWest – Portland! Ryan and I have been blissfully married since June 2014 and I have to say being married to your best friend makes for grand adventures. I am an Office Manager at the University of Portland by week and an adventurer by weekend. I am obsessed with Dutch Bro’s coffee (yes, I know.. not REAL coffee.), hiking through mountains, walking ocean trails, discovering new places (moving to Portland has opened a lot of doors for more adventuring!) and lovin’ on my sweet, sometimes crazy family. I believe whole-heartedly that a good hike on the trails can clear up any life problems and that Jesus loving community is the key to happiness.

I don’t have anything life changing to say, but I thought I would write down some thoughts about marriage, life and all of life’s adventures. I hope to put some spark in your step and maybe inspire you to get outside!
