Good morning! I’m going to attempt a little combination post of what’s been happening with us lately in addition to a few words of thankfulness in there with Thanksgiving being tomorrow and all. Earlier in November, my sister flew in to visit for a few days and (as I suspected), we had a smashing… Continue reading Life Lately… and Thankfulness!
Holiday greetings from our family! We took our Christmas card photos weeks ago (back in October) in an extremely successful 10 minutes session by Joe’s cousin Ashley (THANK YOU, ASHLEY!!!) I’ve been dying to share photos, not just because I love sharing pictures, but so I can… Continue reading Family Pictures 2016… and news!
Happy almost-Halloween! Cece recently had a four-day weekend and we kept busy for most of it. However, on Monday we relaxed around the house and I managed to facilitate a small Halloween project for the girls. During the Christmas season, making gingerbread houses is one of our favorite things to do. I figured we… Continue reading Halloween Candy Houses
Well, hi! It’s been nearly two months since my last post. (As you can see, the above photo is from late summer when Target still thought kids carts were a good idea.) We’ve been staying busy with all things fall and adjusting to Cece’s life in kindergarten. I’ve been taking lots of family pictures and even shot two weddings… Continue reading ALL the things!
I’ve had the privilege of knowing Grandma Geneva for about 11 years. And although I’ve known her for much less time than her own kids and grandkids, I still feel broken-hearted and deeply saddend by her passing this week. Although the details of her life have been recorded here, I need to make it clear… Continue reading Remembering Grandma Geneva
After a morning of shopping and eating in Stillwater, the birthday fun continued on a cruise on the St. Croix! We had a dinner of BBQ ribs and got to enjoy sitting on the different decks, taking in the view, and looking out for mermaids, of course. (This is not a photo of the boat… Continue reading I’m on a boat!
My twenties are a thing of the past! If the last couple days are any indication of how this next decade is going to go, I say bring it. (Though I may need to pencil in more naps for myself…) My mom, sister, my mom’s friend Denise and her daughter Jessica all came up to Minnesota/Wisconsin… Continue reading This is 30!
“Oh let’s get rich and buy our parents homes in the south of France. Let’s get rich and give everybody nice sweaters and teach them how to dance. Let’s get rich and build a house on a mountain making everybody look like ants. From way up there, you and I. You and I.” Over the weekend… Continue reading Congratulations Robbyn and Jason!
Cece turned five today! One whole hand! Just months away from starting kindergarten and one more year closer to being able to vote. It’s no exaggeration that they grow up so fast. Five is going to be a fantastic year from her, I can feel it! We celebrated the occasion by having a family party at… Continue reading Happy 5th Birthday, Cece!
The wedding festivities have officially been kicked off! This weekend I traveled (solo!) to Illinois to help throw a classy Mexican beach themed shower for my sister and her fiance. Thank you all so much to everyone who came and helped celebrate such a silly, special, (and ridiculously good-looking) couple. I know deep in my… Continue reading Showering Robbyn & Jay!
