52:8 Low Light This week was really out of my comfort zone. I am a natural light photographer. I love bright images with pretty light so this week had me a little nervous. I set up a few shoots with low light but in the end I wasn't happy with my results. On Wednesday night I left Vivien at home with my husband and went to a woman's group, it was so nice to get out of the house by myself! It had ... Read the Post


52:7 Love "And if someday you’re lonely, or someday you’re sad, or you strike out at baseball, or think you’ve been bad… just lift up your face, feel the wind in your hair. That’s me, my sweet baby, my love is right there." -Nancy Tillman "Wherever you are, my love will find you" This is my favorite book to read to Vivien. It was one of the first books we got for her, before she was even ... Read the Post

Tulips + Dreaming of Summer

There is something I love about a fresh bouqet of tulips. They are a reminder that our long winter is ending and spring is on its way! Fun fact about me, I used to hate summer. Before Vivien was born I hated being too hot, I hated the sun, I don't know, I was weird. Maybe it's because I grew up in Washington? Either way, that isn't the case anymore. I am literally counting down the days until ... Read the Post

So I just stopped trying to fight it and kept my big bags.  The things you would normally find in my bag are not as pretty as these flowers but they are extremely useful. On any given day you will find the following in my bag.. Diapers, snacks, ... Read the Post

Project 52 Week 6

The prompt for week 6 is "In My Bag" You can tell a lot about someone by what they keep in their bag. If you took a peek into any of my bags you would be able to tell I'm a mom, an essential oil lover, a photographer and a collector of snacks! What do the things in your bag say about you? If you’re just now starting, it isn’t too late! Feel free to jump in at anytime. Remember to tag ... Read the Post

Lavender Simple Syrup

Coffee is not something I take lightly. I am super picky and I try not to be... yet here we are. I'm constantly going back and forth between different coffee creamers, milk, almond milk, sugar, honey, maple syrup.. I love a good flavored creamer as much as anyone but it always leaves me wanting more. I like it, I don't love it. It gets the job done but its not great. My go to is usually almond ...

52:5 Shadow My sweet girl. She doesn't sleep in her crib anymore and I bought her little undies yesterday so she can start potty training. Whoever said the days are long but the years are short was spot on! She is growing up before my eyes and I'm torn.. part of me misses the little baby with chubby thighs  and the other part of me is so proud to see her grow up and turn into her own little ...
