September + October 2020

Hey everyone! It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? (And by minute, I mean about two months). I usually go a little dark during the fall because that’s when photo season ramps up for me and any free time I can find is used for shooting and editing client photos. This fall was a very mixed…

Archer at 9 Months

Archer is 9 months and 10 days old. I’m a little unnerved at how quickly all of these milestones are coming up and how big he is getting… big personality, big head, big appetite, and big trouble. Ares was not pleased that I wanted to use the dump truck as a prop and promptly brought…

Eat, Wear, Read: Summer 2020

Hey everyone! I hope your September has been going ok and that they’re hasn’t been anything terribly surprising and/or traumatizing. I just wanted to be consistent over here and do my quarterly Eat, Wear, Read post for my summer reads, meals, and outfits. In true 2020 fashion I’ve been struggling with clothes a little bit…

August 2020

August! I gotta be honest, it wasn’t too shabby. We spent a few lovely days up north at the cabin. Cece learned to water ski. I celebrated my 34th birthday (wha??? That can’t be right. Pretty sure I’m only 23. We had a few last outing to some parks, the splash pad, and finished off…

First Day of School 2020

They are off! After 6 months of being away from school, the girls were bouncing off the walls this morning with excitement to return. Cece and Rosie woke up at 6:30 am on their own and came downstairs where Cece made both of them breakfast. They both got ready for school without needing any rushing…

Fields of Gold

“I want to be like a sunflower; so that even on the darkest days, I will stand tall and find the sunlight.” Summer is approaching it’s end and there’s evidence everywhere from the leaves are beginning to turn, to the teacher meetings this week, and the mornings that have a glorious crispness in the air….

July 2020

It’s a… relief/accomplishment (?) to check off another month in the year of 2020. July 2020 for our family wasn’t brimming with activities and outings like most summers, but it was still enjoyable. However, we’ve also had a few family beach days and a few park visits. I’ve had some wine nights with one of…

Remembering Grandpa Pete

Beachin’

It would appear that the only times I’ve taken pictures with my camera instead of my phone this summer were beach and lake days when everyone is swimsuit clad and we are near the water (which ironically is probably the worst time to grab a camera, but whatever). Below are some moments from when we…

June 2020

We’re more than halfway through summer (and 2020!) This summer definitely has moved at a slower pace. There’s been less hustle and rush and I’m not mad about it. Walks around our neighborhood and park visits. Chasing the ice cream truck. Working on our landscaping, the house, and the garden, and decluttering. And shooting a…
