Family Photos 2017

At the beginning of December, my whole family humored me and allowed me color coordinate our outfits and take them out hiking in the woods for the sake of family photos.  Fortunately, the afternoon was warm and we got some genuine smiles out of the kiddos. And since Ares hadn’t yet turned officially seven months… Continue reading Family Photos 2017

I Love Fall Most of All

  I think every red-blooded person (and not just my plaid-wearing, pumpkin-spice-loving self)) can agree that fall is probably the most beautiful and busiest time of the year.  Looking back on the past two months, I feel that our family has done SO MUCH against the backdrop of autumn leaves and the perfect fall breeze.… Continue reading I Love Fall Most of All

Summer Happenings 2.0

Hi, friends! Today I bring you the latter half of summer. It has come to my attention that even with the hot weather, I can’t deny summer’s end. It’s the end of September, Cece has already been back to school for well over a month, and there’s  pumpkin spice coffee creamer in our refrigerator.  So,… Continue reading Summer Happenings 2.0

Yowza! Yesterday I got to watch my beastly husband run the MN Spartan Sprint down in Welch Village. My sib-in-laws were total rock stars and watched our kids for us while I accompanied Joe to his race in the morning. We met up with them later and Cece and her cousin Michaela even ran the kid race together! I… Continue reading MN Spartan Sprint ’17

Sundays are for baking, art projects, and PJs!

” A Sunday well-spent brings a week of content.”  Hello from Monday! Whether your weekend was productive, relaxing, or just plain busy, I hope you enjoyed it! Ours was a mixture of all those things.  However, on Sunday Joe had work and it was my day to be home with the ladies. We stayed in our… Continue reading Sundays are for baking, art projects, and PJs!

Wisconson Dells (and other life happenings!)

Hi there! It feels good to be inching towards the end of winter and to start breaking out of hibernation. A couple weeks ago, we took an impromptu four-day trip to Wisconsin Dells. My sister even joined us for part of the vacation which made it extra wonderful. She’s also the reason we even have any… Continue reading Wisconson Dells (and other life happenings!)

ALL the things!

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!
