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…

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…

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…

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…
