February + March 2020

I’m throwing it back to a couple months ago, right before life got rearranged and redefined indefinitely. Here are the happy things that happened with our family in February and March of 2020 which now feel like forever ago. In the beginning of February, Rosie and I had a mama-daughter date to get our nails…

January 2020

To start with, I almost typed “January 2017” as the title to give you an idea just how my brain is functioning lately… not exactly all cylinders are firing and I attribute that to the cute nine or so pounds of noise that I feed cart around daily. (And nightly.) It’s been a challenge to…

Holiday Happenings 2019

Merry Christmas Eve Eve! Before we get into full merry-mode, I just wanted to post a few pics from the last month. Since I was so anxious to prepare for baby’s arrival, we ended up decorating for Christmas the second weekend in November, I ordered and mailed my holiday cards before December, we actually finished…

Oct + Nov 2019

As per usual, I feel like I can’t fully move on to the next season of the year/life until I’ve done at least a wee little blog post bringing everything up to date. Here are just a few happenings and photos from October and November. To be honest, I spent most of my time shooting…

First Days of School 2019

I’m still in disbelief that our girls are this big and this old, but Cece and Rosie began third grade and kindergarten this week. Cece started school this Tuesday and Rosie just boarded the bus for her first day of kindergarten this morning. I’m really glad they were cooperative and willing to take first-day pics….

August 2019 Recap

Summer has promptly packed up her bags and has strutted out of here in style. The month of August felt like one last glorious chance to do a lot of our favorite things (Such as visit the cabin and go for rides on Grandpa’s boat as pictured above). Here are some of the highlights! Even…

Photos with Sparky the Unicorn

A couple weekends ago our family had a unique opportunity to meet Sparky the Unicorn and have some photos taken with him! Originally I had only signed up Rosie for photos, but upon actually seeing Sparky, Cece changed her decision about declining photos with Sparky and barged jumped into the shoot too. All of our…

Fawn-Doe-Rosa

This week (on a seriously perfect day), I packed up the kids and a picnic lunch to visit Fawn-Doe-Rosa. This may have been one of our nicest days all summer…There was essentially no whining, fighting, major injuries, hunger, or complaining. I kind of didn’t know what was happening. The kids and myself had a fantastic…

July 2019

Hey everyone! Just thought I’d take a break from procrastinating buying back-to-school supplies to whip up a quick monthly recap of July. Here’s what we did! (Besides take funny photos with the leaf blower, thanks Joe.) The weekend before the 4th of July we had a great time at my in-laws cabin. Ares found a…

Mother Daughter Date!

So today ended up being awfully sweet. Joe and I have been trying to plan once-a-month “dates” with the girls. Last month he went on an outing with each of the girls (both of them chose Chuck E. Cheese.) This time Cece and I got to go out for a few hours just the two…
