2007

The past year has been full of travel, visits with friends and family, and a few milestones. The camera is always in tow. We hope you will enjoy a small sampling of our photographs from 2007.

The start of 2007 continued to deliver wonderful snow.

Jeremy and I marked our tenth wedding anniversary in early March and celebrated with a trip (and international astronomy conference) to Australia’s Red Centre. Kaweah celebrated with a stay at Camp Crazy at Jeremy’s folks’ house.

The trip didn’t end with Alice Springs. I spent a few delicious days in Sydney with Kell and Jerad until Jeremy’s conference was done. We then hopped over to New Zealand’s South Island to hike, paddle, backpack, and eat fish and chips!

what is a trip to New Zealand without waterfalls?

In April, we visited ye olde stomping grounds: Caltech. We saw as many of our dear friends (and dined at as many of our favorite restaurants) as was humanly possible in a weekend.

Jeremy accompanied me back to Cornell for my PhD defense on May 1. We then zipped to Virginia to see my parents’ new waterfront house. I also enrolled in a 10-week pastry skills program at the Culinary School of the Rockies.

I never had this kind of homework before!

In between turning out pastries, we traipsed to New Mexico to see family, and attended (and photographed) a beautiful celebration of our friends in Seattle.

Jeremy and I spent a week in July with my parents exploring Whistler and Victoria.

No matter where our travels take us, it is always wonderful to return home.

I made it out to Atlanta for Ben’s 8th birthday in September! Emily is as fearless and hilarious as ever while Ben remains a fun and sweet boy. He looks so much like Kris.

We wish you all peace, happiness, and health for the coming year.
