Abigail Elizabeth / terrific trips

Last week my baby girl turned FIVE! I cannot believe we have a five year old. She is the sweetest big sister, absolutely brilliant – seriously I wish I had her memory, passionate about all the things, feisty, oh so feisty… and yet, has the sweetest most compassionate little heart. I love her so much. How often do you turn five, right?? So, Disneyland. Obviously. Because I went when I was five and was absolutely […]

The sweetest – and I mean the SWEETEST boy turned one yesterday! Just thinking back to how depressed I was his whole pregnancy… and I mean, we are talking a verrrry dark place – to be gifted with the cheeriest little soul…. he’s just the biggest hug God could have ever given me and I’m so thankful for him. So anyways, a few pictures from this celebratory day! I know I’m probably projecting entirely but […]

family days / home / the daily life

Because it’s one of my most favorite days of the year! Just lookit these babes all snuggly in the morning watching the parade from on top of their brother And because I clearly can’t get enough of these faces.. Or these little heads.. They are my favorite. Also, Fall flowers are my favorite so let’s take a quick pause to look at 292 pictures of these beauties! I felt like making a cornucopia this year… […]

He is such a joy MY GOODNESS I can’t stop staring! The cheeks! The little chin! The curls that are coming in at the nape of his neck! THOSE EYELASHES! Not to mention the most edible tummy and foots and […]

little stories

Sometimes there are little things that happen that I want to pause to remember. Like today! I love my kids an absurd amount but there is one thing about them that drives me up the wall. They appear to hate being outside. We live in California – the land of notoriously perfect, 72 degree days. If it’s 73 it’s nooooooo it’s too hot!!! if it’s 71 IT’S FREEZING!!!. Each time they utter such absurdities a […]

Does he look happy? Does he? Cause he wasn’t… why with these pictures WHYYYYY!?! I say it with every child. Anyways! dear sweet sad boy, this month we are up to FOUR TEETH! And he’ll crawl (properly on his knees, mind you) across the room just to bite you. I’m so excited about the crawling. Life just got very busy but it’s so much fun to see his curiosity blossom. That is when he’s not […]

^^hiiiii Noah Oh New York…I am not a city girl but NY was one of those places I was certain, just CERTAIN, I’d love. I’ve daydreamed many a time of selling everything and moving there when our house of endless projects and fixes and problems gets too overwhelming. Greg thinks I can’t handle the winters …or the summers …or the people …or anything really, BUT I THINK HE’S WRONG. Naturally we visited at the most […]

^^cried through this whole shoot. Greg tried to help. Results pictured. Lil man turned 9 months old while we were away hence the posting overload! I gotta do it whenever I have the time ;) He was such a sad boy this month! What with the teeth coming in, the high fever, vomiting, and roseola, he’s been properly clingy and oh so sad. Right now he has the softest little cry that just breaks my […]

We had such a fun time in South Carolina! Greg got to hang out with his buddies who haven’t all been together in ages, the kids got filled up on friend time and I had the best time just looking around at all the pretty and watching everyone laughing and playing so freakishly nicely together :) We stayed in the most gorgeous house by the beach! It was so dreamy to wake up in such […]

We have a tooth! We have a tooth! Definitely started writing this earlier today when there were no teeth but sure enough, Greg was feeling around tonight and out popped a little sharp tooth! And there’s that familiar pang that is associated with all the lasts.. last first tooth :’) I’ll just go do a couple soft sobs in the corner over here. Oh this boy is such a sweetheart! He is sticking to his […]
