To-do and To-get.

photo from a nursery edition of one blogger's extreme makeover.

This right here is on my April to-do list.  Finish our little girl's nursery.  I have so many random ideas in my head for woodland creatures, ugly dolls, vintage toys, and homemade artwork from me and Erick.  It's been so busy and I really feel like besides the crib and paint, we haven't put much effort into making it a super rad space for her.  I want her to have a bunch of cool things to look, explore, and play with.  

Lomo LC-A Original 35mm camera

This is on my April lust over/to-get list.  Still out of my price range at the moment, but a lot more feasible then my lofty goal of ever owning a Polaroid 600SE.  I'm obsessed with film lately, even though it's INCREDIBLY hard not having the instant gratification of a digital camera.  I might even sell my old Rebel XTi to make room for one of these.  Hopefully it's worth even that much.  We'll see.  I plan on taking a lot of photos the next few days so I can get the rest of my SXSW film developed!  I feel photo deprived on this blog!  The nicer weather leaves me no room for any more excuses.

Easter Weekend

Hello! Happy mid-week to you. This is the roll of photos we shot over our Easter weekend, and oh what a wonderful weekend it was. It was so nice to have family here to visit - even if the weather was cooler than we anticipated! We visited the redwoods in Felton, ate vegetarian burritos, went to the epic shoreside in Montara, and the brewing company in Half Moon Bay. Our hearts are full and our home is feeling quite empty now ;)

As a side note, I've found a renewed love with film. This is a post for another time, but it bears mentioning here! There has been much on my mind re: photography, and hopefully this will be the space I can share that.

For the curious, all the above were shot on a Nikon FM10 with Fuji Superia 400 speed film.

The Long And Short Of It

Hi, friends. How was your weekend? After having non-stop rain for nearly a month, we finally received a short break in the El Niño weather to head to the coast. Even though it's not in our backyard, I still feel like twenty miles to the beach is a good compromise. It really is lovely here and it makes me happy to see the girls so at home in the sea.

This week we are gearing up for Easter and some very special visitors -- my Mama and my sister! It will be the first time Mom has seen our new home or visited the Bay Area, so to say we are excited would be an understatement. We cannot wait. I've even kept it as a surprise from the girls, so I'm sure the look on their faces alone when they see Grammie and their Auntie will be the highlight of the whole trip.

What about you? Any special Easter plans or crafting?

We made some hot crossed buns for the first time last year, and I'm hoping I can bake a little something special this year too. We're going to try this recipe a…

Made It To Another Weekend : The Table

Oh, weekend. We are so happy you're here. It's been a doozy lately. I won't put you through the pitiful details, don't worry-- but I'm just happy to exhale a little bit and am welcoming these days of togetherness with open arms. PS- look at me using unfiltered iPhone photos in a blog post. Who am I? Sometimes I don't even recognize myself. Truly a measure of just how exhausted I really am both mentally and physically ;)

And while I've been seriously down and out in every other area of my life, we've actually been doing some pretty cool things at home. I'm so proud of Sofia and her desire to soak up new information, to learn, and to think of me as a pretty cool "teacher". I'm so in awe of everything she does. But this is all part of the inevitable fact that these kiddos of ours are growing up. 
Most days we'll do some kind of worksheet, practicing our letters and cutting skills and getting to color.... other days we'll just spe…
