April & May 2020

Alternate titles for this post included “Love in a Time of Corona” as well as “Straight Outta Quarantine,” but I just decided to go with what I’ve been consistently titling these monthly/bi-monthly life updates complete with iPhone photos. I haven’t really written much about my thoughts/feelings/experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic, because it seemed like EVERYONE…

Family Photos Spring 2020

Last month, we had family photos taken by my friend Tricia! The purpose was for the Hudson Neighbors magazine feature, but she was kind enough to snap way more for us. I know it seems like we are always getting family photos done (and it sure feels that way for my own family I know!)….

Taking a Hard Look in the Mirror

I feel like all I have been doing this past week is absorbing news and observing everyone’s reaction to the news. (The news being the death of George Floyd and the protest and riots, just in case you haven’t been on Earth for the past week). I assure you, even though I haven’t written, my…

Cece’s Photography

One week ago I let Cece borrow my old Canon rebel with the kit lens. She had asked if she could use it a few other times, and honestly, I’m running out of ideas and activities around here so I said sure. I gave her a few tips, but then just let her do her…

Eat, Wear, Read: New mom edition

I know when I need a distraction in life, I like to turn to food, clothes, and books. So if that sounds like you, then enjoy today’s content. I’m throwing it back to my new-mom-of four days. Things had to be simple, stretchy, and comforting for the first few months of this year with the…

Archer’s Three Month Photos

In early March, just when Archer turned 3 months old, my friend Tricia efficiently and beautifully captured some great milestone photos of him. His little personality and really just been starting to come out… little smiles and smirks when he gets his way, BIG smiles when he’s getting attention, and complete contentment just to be…

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…

One month as a fam of 6

“First we had each other. Then we had you. Now we have everything.” Here is our most recent round of family photos/newborn photos of Archer. They were taken by my friend Rachel at The Hive House. (It’s pretty much the most adorable and versatile whole-house studio ever). These were taken when he was about three…

December 2019

I hope the new year has been off to a great start for you! For the past month, we have been living day to day, just trying to reorient ourselves with having a newborn in our lives. There’s this part of me that feels more calmed down and more together when I’ve had chance to…
